Plot: The world renowned “Invincible Hand” Ken could identify not only mahjong tiles, but also cards with his fingers which had made him a legend. Upon his retirement as the Chief Security Consultant in Las Vegas, Ken returned to his hometown Macau, where he met his old friend Benz, and Benz’s son Cool and nephew Karl. Both Cool and Karl wanted to follow Ken. Ken claimed that if Cool could successfully cheat him once or win over him, he would then accept Cool as his protégé.

The retired Ken was forced to use his “Magic Hand” once again to uncover the evil plan…

A watchable, entertaining drama comedy film
Anyone who watched Hong Kong movies from the 90s should roughly know what this film is about. From Vegas to Macau is another gambling-themed action drama comedy film directed by Wong Jing (王晶) which stars Chow Yun Fatt (周润发), but note that this film is not related to the God of Gamblers series from the past.
As with many Wong Jing’s films from the past, the film is full of slapstick and nonsensical ‘mou-lei-tau’ (无厘头) comedic jokes, some worked, providing the audience a few laughs here and there, while some don’t…as some of them feel forced and superficial or due to jokes being done several times by many films in the past.
The film will not be as entertaining as it should be without Chow Yun Fatt’s charismatic performance as the legendary gambler turned Macau casino lead security consultant, Ken. It’s been a very long time since we get to watch him involved in such a comedic, charming role. It’s quite fortunate that he still got what it takes to carry the film. As usual, we have Chapman To (杜汶泽) to provide some comic relief to relieve some tension in the midst of serious elements in the film. On the other hand, Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋) delivered a quite disappointing, below-average, unenthusiastic performance as the good-looking main hero who knows how to fight, possibly to provide some eye-candy for female audiences.
The film lacks in plot and character development for many of the supporting characters, which is quite common for many Wong Jing films, so it’s expected. The film is at best when it’s not taken seriously and just go with the ‘flow’, enjoying the comedic scenes as they come and go.
Overall, it’s still a decent entertaining film to watch during the Chinese New Year festive season, due to Chow Yun Fatt’s incredibly charming performance.
