1. Casino Tycoon (Blu-ray) (Shaw Brothers)
Synopsis 130 minutes :
Fiction mixes with fact in this gambling
epic, inspired by the life of Macau’s “Casino
King” Stanley Ho. Andy Lau is in his element as
the tycoon of the title, tracing his blood-
splattered fight to the top and spanning the
1930s to the 1960s. The combination of action,
romance, and gambling was irresistible to local
audiences, and proved a resounding Chinese New
Year hit in 1992, the very height of the last
great golden age of Hong Kong cinema.

Synopsis 112 minutes :

he is also the target of many enemies, some of

about to just roll over and die.
