Casino Raiders (1989)

Andy Lau Tak-Wah and Alan Tam Wing-Lun play gamblers turned security consultants who are brought to Las Vegas to help some casino operators protect themselves against some high-rolling Japanese gamblers. They bust the elaborate scam and set in motion a revenge melodrama that leads to a nasty outcome.

Master filmmaker Wong Jing directs, with "business" partner Jimmy Heung Wa-Sing, from a script he co-wrote with said partner. Casino Raiders is a dark film that features Jimmy Lung Fong as a deadly adversary to the two famous pop stars. Ida Chan Yuk-Lin and Rosamund Kwan Chi-Lam look good against the backdrop of the gambling underworld. It's not Wong's best gambling film, and it's not the worst one either.
