Do San (the God of gamblers) is a legendary gambler helped by his supernatural abilities. He undertakes to help a friend pay a debt by beating his friend’s advisory at the card table. Despite being assigned a bodyguard Do San has a freak accident which leaves him with partial memory loss and at a mental stage of a child. The small time hustler Knife, his side-kick and his girl friend, being responsible for the accident takes care of the retarded Do San. After some time they discover that he has not lost all of his powers and takes him on a round at the local gambling halls. After being chased by both Knife’s loan-shark and enemies closer to the home of Do San, a final showdown at the card tables may take place.
No, not much is missing at all. The movie has great actors performing great all around whether it is comedy or action. The action wasn’t much emphasized as in rather friendship, but when the action does kick in, it brings you to the same level as John Woo’s bullet exchange, and heck, even Dragon (the bodyguard) knows some kick ass moves when he fights.
I did not expect much of this movie at first knowing it wasn’t john woo who directed it, but after just the first 5 min i was totally into the movie and had forgotten who directed the movie, because it was equally great, and i couldn’t ask for more
get this movie! i can’t wait til i get my hands on it’s sequels
