God of Gamblers (1989)


Director: Wong Jing

Starring:  Chow Yun-Fat, Andy Lau, Joey Wong

Chow Yun Fat (Asia's answer to Clint Eastwood) plays the world's greatest gambler who loses his memory before getting a chance to beat a corrupt rival.

Chow Yun Fat plays Ko Chun, a super-suave gambler gifted with almost supernatural skill at all games of chance. In a now classic scene, Ko faces off against Michiko Nishikawa in a game of dice. She rolls a perfect low score - six ones. Ko responds with a roll of five ones - and one broken die, making him the winner (ironicaly, my copy was misdubbed so that the dealer declared that the victory went to the highest roll). After this victory, Ko is recruited by his opponent, a man named Wong, to help him depose his rival Chan in a high stakes game.

 However, before the game can occur Ko hits his head in a fall and loses his memory. He is taken in by a small time hood named Knife (Andy Lau) and his girlfriend Jane (Joey Wong), neither of whom know who he really is. They soon discover that although Ko has been reduced to the mentality of a child, he still retains his phenomenal gambling abilities.

However, he won't gamble unless he's fed his favorite brand of chocolate. Word eventually leaks out about Ko's condition, and the pressure builds as his enemies move to have him eliminated. Will Ko regain his memory and face the villanous Chan in a gambling showdown? What do you think?
