Do San (the God of gamblers) is a legendary gambler helped by his supernatural abilities. He undertakes to help a friend pay a debt by beating his friend's advisory at the card table. Despite being assigned a bodyguard Do San has a freak accident which leaves him with partial memory loss and at a mental stage of a child. The small time hustler Knife, his side-kick and his girl friend, being responsible for the accident takes care of the retarded Do San. After some time they discover that he has not lost all of his powers and takes him on a round at the local gambling halls. After being chased by both Knife's loan-shark and enemies closer to the home of Do San, a final showdown at the card tables may take place.
A master gambler loses his memory, and is befriended by a street hustler who discovers his supernatural gambling abilities.
I'm a big fan of the actors involved, but I was disappointed by this film. Be warned, the movie isn't like the cover suggests.
It's like Chow Yun Fat phoned his agent one day and said "I'm tired of being a total badass of excellence - I want to do a film where I act like an annoying retard for most of it, but become badass for a few seconds just to remind people of what they're missing in the rest of the film and save the day at the end". By a crazy coincidence, Andy Lau had chosen a random word to define his next character, and that word was "incompetent annoying fool".
The (single!) gunfight may be quite good, and the ending is trademark cool Chow Yun Fat - but it doesn't justify the hour of wasted time in the middle with Andy money-grabbing and Chow Yun Fat sobbing like a child, with the implications of bonding between the two that never really works.
When the cover shows Chow holding a deck of cards and Andy holding a gun , I expect the criminal population of the city to have dropped by at least ten percent by the end of the film, along with some tense and exciting card scenes. Instead you get some embarrassing situational humour and unfunny slapstick. ...but the subtitles on the DVD I rented were totally unreadable. They are burned directly into the film (unlike properly formatted DVD subtitles), and sit much too low on the screen, resulting in the English being cropped off. The VHS version might be better.
