Casino Tycoon II (1992) Poster

Prolific director Wong Jing mixes the laughter, action and suspense - as only he can - in this sequel. Casino tycoon Ho Hsin (Andy Lau) has enemies, but he is not about to just roll over and die.

| A swing and a miss in the Hong Kong cinema...
First of all, I don't think I've actually seen the first movie here, so I had no idea what to expect from the 1992 movie "Casino Tycoon II" (aka "Do sing daai hang II: Ji juen mo dik"). But still, it was a Hong Kong movie and had Andy Lau in the lead, so of course I ended up sitting down to watch it.

Well, apparently not everything that Andy Lau stars in turns to gold. This movei from writer and director Jing Wong was boring, so very, very boring. Actually I managed to endure 1 hour and 4 minutes of the ordeal, then I simply had enough and got up to turn off the movie. I had been tempted to turn it off a couple of times before then, but stuck with it, because this was Andy Lau after all.

But a storyline that was just mundane and pointless, and virtually nothing overly interesting or particularly action-filled happened in that time, so I was bored senseless. And I actually can say that I have no intention of returning to watch the rest of "Casino Tycoon II".

While this 1992 Hong Kong movie definitely had an impressive cast ensemble, with the likes of Andy Lau, Chingmy Yau and Shiu Hung Hui on the cast list, it just failed to be entertaining given the lousy and pointless storyline and script.

My rating of "Casino Tycoon II" is a mere, and somewhat generous, three out of ten stars. I was bored with this movie, I kid you not.
