God of Gamblers II [1990]

After the huge success of Wong Jing's God of Gamblers [1989], the next logical move for the writer and director would be to indulge in self-parody and ridicule the genre conventions he established, right? This outstanding movie is a milestone in Wong's career that marks his first collaboration with comedian Stephen Chow Sing-Chi. For any student of Hong Kong cinema and/or the films of Wong Jing, God of Gamblers II is a must-see film for a myriad of reasons.
