Description

Ko Chun is the greatest high-roller in the world, king of the casino and as cool as only an in-his-prime Chow Yun-fat (Hard Boiled; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) can be. But that’s before a nasty head injury renders him mentally disabled.
After being befriended by unscrupulous hustler ‘Knife’ (golden-throated Canto-Pop king Andy Lau), it is discovered that, despite his other impairments, Ko’s unerring instincts for gambling remain intact. Knife thinks he’s on to a sure thing but Ko still has enemies and they haven’t forgotten him…

A huge hit on its original release, and one of the defining films of Chow Yun-fat’s astonishing career, the card-sharks at 88 Films are proud to roll the dice on a gloriously restored version of this Hong Kong classic.
