God of Gamblers Directed by Wong Jing

Critics reviews

Wong, a reliably entertaining stylist, deploys a variety of over-the-top techniques: emphatic cuts and zooms, fights filmed with space-distorting wide-angle lenses, and even an aggressively choreographed mahjong scene. The movie—scored to the kind of incongruously jaunty MIDI music familiar from countless Cantonese productions of the period—skips along from one unlikelihood to the next. The true key to God Of Gamblers’ success, though, is Chow’s bizarrely committed performance.
