God of Gamblers (1989)
Reviewed by: hokazak on 1999-12-09
Excellent performance by Chow Yun Fat in this classic tale of an extraordinarily gifted, suave super-gambler who loses his memory after receiving a bump on the head, and regresses to a childlike mental state, only to be "adopted" by Andy Lau and Joey Wong, who want to use his "gift" to get rich. Incredible action scene in a parking garage where CYF (still in "child"-mode) and his protector, "Dragon" take on a slew of attackers in spectacular fashion. Good mix of comedy and drama.
