Podcast On Fire 194: Gambling Season – All For The Winner & God Of Gamblers II

pof194

Welcome to part 2 of our God of Gamblers series retrospective and after covering the Chow Yun-fat run of movies in the form of 1989’s God of Gamblers and 1994’s God of Gamblers’ Return, we turn from God to Saint and the Stephen Chow run. In 1990 Stephen Chow broke through as a comedy superstar playing the Saint Of Gamblers in All For The Winner directed by Jeff Lau and Corey Yuen. Setting off a long series of successful comedies and being dubbed the king mo lei tau comedy. Then the universes merged in the the same year for God Of Gamblers II, with Chow reprising his Saint role and being paired up with Andy Lau’s Knife from God Of Gamblers. Instant success, headed by Wong Jing. Sound confusing? Well, we’ll break it for ya. With Kenny B and Paul Fox.

pof192

Welcome to this retrospective of part of the God Of Gamblers series, its sequels and spin off’s. Hugely popular real life occupation for Hong Kong people and transferred to the screen as well, by the man who arugably did it the best while also adhering to comedy and action tradition of the golden period of Hong Kong cinema of the 80s and 90s. His name is Wong Jing and struck box office gold in 1989 with God Of Gamblers starring superstar Chow Yun-fat in his iconic role of Do San, the God of Gamblers, Andy Lau and Joey Wong. A few Stephen Chow vehicles in the same vein were made around this time and subsequently but in 1994 the team of Chow and Wong Jing got together for God Of Gamblers’ Return and those are the two movies we picked for episode one out of three in this series dubbed Gambling Season. With Kenny B and special guest and hos of the East Screen West Screen podcast, Paul Fox.
