Professional Review of "God Of Gambler's Return (DVD) (DTS) (Hong Kong Version)"
Hailed by many as the most perfect Hong Kong movie ever made, God of Gamblers Return is unparalleled viewing, surpassing its predecessor and launching the viewers' brain into a land of strangeness and charm from which it will return permanently changed. Wong Jing is Timothy Leary and God of Gamblers Return is the tab of acid he uses to spike your drink: without knowing it your life is kicked in the consciousness and changed forever.
Chow Yun-fat (looking fat and happy, but still debonair) reprises the role of Ko Chow, the chocolate-munching, opponent-leveling, jade-ring-twirling, card-playing, unflappable, inscrutable, unbootable, he's-a-hoot-able, tuxedo-suit-able, God of Gamblers now retired with his pregnant wife, Yau (Sharla Cheung Man) and living in "Paris, France". Mr. Cho has died and sends the Taiwanese, Chau, to pass his $16 billion "Save the Worlds Kids" fund to Ko Chow for administration because Ko Chow is "the best gambler in the world". Chau bristles at being called number two, throws a fluffy kitty out the car window and, in a scene that will live in infamy, offs Yau and her unborn son in graphic, brain-scalding fashion.
Grief-stricken, Ko Chow wanders to China where he comes across the happy Taiwanese crime family of Hoi Tung (gregarious Blackie Ko), Chingmy Yau and Tse Miu (child star of My Father is a Hero). Ken Lo, one of Chau's men, decides to earn brownie points by blowing up Hoi Tung's pleasure yacht, leaving Tse Miu in care of Ko Chow. Fleeing the Mainland police (led by the implacable Elvis Tsui) they stumble into the arms of brother/sister con team, Big Trumpet (Big Tony Leung Kar-fai), and Little Guitar (Wu Chien-lien) whose comic performances are so unbelievably good that for years to come you'll identify them in other movies as Big Trumpet and Little Guitar. The three make an escape to Taiwan to return Tse Miu to his parents and you can be sure that before the end Ko Chow will gamble, Charles Heung (head of China Star, alleged head of the Sun Yee On triad, and here reprising his role of Lung) will mow down a zillion bad guys, Chingmy Yau will do Roulette fu, Tse Miu will level a roomful of cops, and you'll hear the catchy God of Gamblers theme at full, brain-rattling volume as Ko Chow gets out of his limo dressed in a tux to thunderous applause.
Rebutting arguments that Hong Kong movies are apolitical, here is a political vaudeville of the lowest order. Taiwanese, Hong Kong, and Mainland Chinese stereotypes, political tensions, dialects, and ideologies are roughly burlesqued. Dumb comedy, smart comedy, squib-spurts, kung fu, and the kind of gambling you've only seen in your dreams nuzzle up to one another like a truck full of happy sheep, driven by the intense comic performances of Chow Yun-fat, Wu Chien-lien, Elvis Tsui, Tony Leung, and Chingmy Yau driven at breakneck speed by Wong Jing, Hong Kong's reigning King of Bad Taste here at the height of his evil genius.

The Fourth Film In Wong Jing's God of Gamblers series, this film marks the return of Chow Yun Fat as Du Shen. It may be the same character as in the original, but his portrayal by CYF is completely different, and the film loses much (All) the class of the original. Nevertheless it's still a fun movie, and some features entertaining performances, such as from Tony Leung Ka Fai and Chingmy Yau, as well as a somewhat memorable villian played by Taiwanese actor Wu Xingguo, (best known for playing Chiang Kai-Shek in the west).
While the film is quite fun if taken in the right spirit, some of the jokes (Typical of post-Tiananmen HK Comedy Films) are quite offensive to Mainland Chinese, such as the depiction of the Mainland Police as Unsympathetic Human Rights Violators, who in one scene, beat up a group of HK Reporters for no reason, and the Taiwanese Police as Corrupt and Lazy, evident in one scene where Chow masquerades as a KMT Agent.
With that aside, this film is still quite enjoyable if taken in the right spirit, and is still Highly Recommended for those who enjoy Wong Jing's films, but for others expecting a similar film to the Original, you will be disappointed.

There are alot of God Of Gamblers movies out there..
And this is the second installment in the God Of Gamblers era with Chow Yun Fat.
This one is filled with comedy that hits good on every level.
Also the action is very cool even though this is more of a comedy.
This remastered release looks really good.. its fun to see how many of those old hong kong releases gets the treatment they deserve on DVD now.
Its surly a must by if you are a fan of chow yun fat and a fan of oldschool hongkong flix in general.

|This is the first film I ever saw Tony Leung Ka Fai in. He was hysterically funny and very handsome. In fact, he was the highlight of the film which suffers next to the original. Chow Yun Fat is a wonderful actor - talented, handsome, and dignified - but this film is not equal to his talents. It had some very funny moments...some good drama...wonderful actors doing their best...and a pretty weak story line. Too bad. It has all the right points in the wrong film. Watch for my favorite scene. CYF and TLKF exit a car in a huge square in Taiwan. Tony asks if they have time to see a film and is told no...in a firm way. Look behind him and CYF at the billboards. You'll laugh! I'm not comfortable giving this one a ?0? but for great actors, funny shtick, lots of laughs and some TLKF and CYF eye candy, a ??is fair. A definite see.|
