Another set of Lobby Cards

I am getting down to a precious few sets of lobby cards to put up. These are of that very silly but enormously fun 1994 film God of Gamblers Return. I haven't seen it in ages but it was made when Hong Kong could still throw together an amazing cast on a moments notice, when their films moved at the speed of light, when it had an anything goes attitude and when Wong Jing was still great. How about this for a cast - Chow Yun Fat, Chingmy Yau, Sharla Cheung Man, Wu Chien-lien, Tony Leung Ka-fai, Tze Miu (the boy kung fu wonderkind), Ken Lo, Blackie Ko, Elvis Tsui and Charles Heung (whose brother was a biggie in the triads and who went on to become one of HK's biggest film producers). It is a dazzling mix of eye candy, action and idiocy.
