YesAsia Editorial Description
Following his confrontation with the nefarious DOA organization, Ken (Chow Yun Fat) is looking forward to going back to enjoying his retirement. His rest is cut abruptly short when his protégé Vincent (Shawn Yue), who's now working for Interpol, asks for Ken's help in taking down the real mastermind behind DOA, Aoi. The two head to Thailand, where DOA's former chief accountant Mark (Nick Cheung) has escaped with his daughter. During the ensuing investigation, the three newly allied men discover that Molly (Carina Lau), Ken's erstwhile lover, is working with Aoi. This tangled web of intrigue comes to a head in the ultimate game of gamble 30,000 feet in the air, in DOA's headquarters.

After foiling the criminal plans of the international money-laundering syndicate DOA, our hero from Macau, Ken (CHOW Yun Fat) is ready to sit back and enjoy life. Ken's plan for a calm existence comes to a halt when his protege, Vincent (Shawn YUE) joins Interpol and asks for his master's help in arresting the real mastermind of DOA, Ms. Aoi. Though initially refusing to help, Ken eventually decides to work with Interpol again, as he is nearly killed by Aoi in retaliation for the destructive act he did to DOA.
Mark (Nick CHEUNG), the Chief Accountant of DOA and a highly intelligent guy, betrays Aoi. He steals the dirty money amounting to USD15 billion from DOA via the internet and flees to Thailand with his daughter Yan (Angela WANG). Aoi sends numerous hit men to hunt him down. Ken and the Interpol are also after him as he will be a material witness against DOA.
In Thailand, Ken and Vincent get into a fierce wit and fist game with the hit men to save Mark. The sly Mark slips through Ken's hands several times before he is finally captured. Mark eventually allies himself with Ken to work against Aoi. However, new complications arise when the love of Ken's life, Molly (Carina LAU) appears to be in league with his enemies...
It all comes together in an ultimate battle of life and death at an altitude of 30,000 feet in "The Dragon's Palace", the sky castle of DOA. This will be one of the biggest gambles in Ken's life. Who will emerge as the ultimate winner?

Professional Review of "From Vegas To Macau II (2015) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"
This professional review refers to From Vegas To Macau II (2015) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Given the huge success of Wong Jing’s 2014 gambling comedy From Vegas to Macau, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that a sequel now arrives less than a year later. Chow Yun Fat, unquestionably the first film’s main asset, returns again to send up his roles in the likes of God of Gamblers, backed by a new set of famous co-stars including Nick Cheung (Temporary Family), Carina Lau (Bends) and Shawn Yue (As The Light Goes Out). The formula again proved incredibly successful at the box office, the film currently standing as China’s highest-grossing film of 2015 and as the country’s 9th biggest hit of all time -part III is inevitably set to follow in 2016.
Chow again plays top gambler Ken, the film opening with him in well-deserved retirement following his clash with the evil DOA organisation in From Vegas to Macau. His peace and quiet doesn’t last long of course, his protégé turned Interpol agent Vincent (Shawn Yue) turning up and asking for his help in trying to bring down Aoi, the shadowy figure behind DOA. The case revolves around former DOA accountant Mark (Nick Cheung), who’s hiding out from the villains in Thailand with his young daughter (mainland child star Angela Wang) and who barely escapes after an attempt is made on his life by a gang of assassins. Ken takes on the task of protecting Mark, putting him on a collision course with his lifelong love Molly (Carina Lau). Needless to say, hijinks ensure.
While the above synopsis might sound like something resembling a plot, From Vegas to Macau II is an unashamedly narrative-free affair, with logic, common sense and coherence never being given more than a cursory nod. This is entirely on purpose of course, and the film harks back to the strangest and silliest of Wong Jing’s 1990s output, with every scene having only the most tangential links to those before or after. The film is perhaps best summarised by the fact that Chow and Lau abruptly decide to go for a beach holiday right in the middle of the supposed drama, purely to pack in more gags, cheap romance and exoticism.
Lurching between low-brow humour and leering shots of scantily clad women, surprisingly violent deaths and the odd moment of bafflingly believable emotion, the film is definitely one for either fans of the form or viewers with short attention spans and a forgiving nature. While not as funny as the first one, largely due to its being far more chaotic and random, the film nevertheless has a decent hit ratio when it comes to laughs, and though uneven is a great deal of fun for those in the right mind. This has ever been the case with Wong Jing, and From Vegas to Macau II is instantly recognisable as being very much in his usual style, something which is likely to make the film a recommendation for some and a severe warning for others.
Aside from the obvious nostalgia value (a lot of gags are likely to be lost on anyone who doesn’t remember the God of Gamblers or Rich and Famous series), the main selling point here is the cast - or to be more specific, Chow Yun Fat, who really goes all out in making a fool of himself in pretty much every scene, which to his credit he does with great enthusiasm and aplomb. Watching him go all out for the film’s entire running time is undeniably a treat, and though his role as Ken makes very little (if any) sense, his bizarre behaviour and inconsistency is very much part of appeal. To be fair, the rest of the cast does well despite being straight men and women to Chow’s lunatic, though they’re in turn overshadowed by a long line of famous face cameos, all of which are milked for maximum laughs and ridiculousness and which provide the film with most of its most genuine laugh out loud moments.
From Vegas to Macau II comes as a straight recommendation for anyone who enjoyed the first film or old school nonsense Hong Kong comedy, though viewers without a high tolerance for gibberish might be advised to reconsider, as it really does push the boat out in terms of incoherence and insanity. It’s undoubtedly Chow Yun Fat’s show, and with no stone being left unturned in the search for ludicrous and self-referential gags the veteran actor clearly has a ball, his no-holds barred performance making for a great deal of fun.
