Teenage Gambler
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Lee Ping Kwong.


Sort of a sequal to BLACK MASK v. GAMBLING MASTERMIND, as once again a chubby kid acts like a gambling master. Could be the same kid, thankfully I don't own the earlier film and have erased most of my memories of it already. Here, it's the young martial arts kid Shih Hsiao Lung, who does not appear to be aging too well. He pulls a lot of small time gambling stunts on his neighbors. If you can wait long enough, Norman Chu eventually shows up, and of course a gambling competition eventually materializes. Shot on video. I think what I need for this kind of movie is a big red rubber stamp that reads "NG" (No Good), so I can stamp a review and move on.

Rating: Not Recommended (Not Recommended)

I'm a big fan of Shih Hsaio Lung since he was small. My family and I love chinese movies very much. Hope you can send me images and biography of Shih Hsiao Lung. Thank you.
