The Skinny: Poor attempt to resurrect the God of Gamblers franchise with a different actor: Eric Kot Man-Fai. Insert obligatory Wong Jing/Eric Kot joke here.
by Kozo:
     Plot:Ng Man-Tat’s search for a new Saint of Gamblers leads him to God Bless You (Eric Kot), a super-powered yet unrefined Mainlander whose wacky antics could destroy planets. Slimy gambler Ray Thai (Lam Kwok-Bun) uses his tough-but-nice girlfriend (Chingmy Yau) and her kung-fu brother (miniature martial arts dynamo Sik Siu-Lung) to distract his enemies as he attempts wins the World Gambling Contest. Also featuring Pang Dan as buxom gambler Hokei and Donnie Yen as Lone Chat, Lone Ng’s brother (That's Dragon Seven instead of Dragon Five. Get it?).
     This new attempt at a gambling film is messy and sporadically funny. Without either Stephen Chow or Chow Yun-Fat, Wong Jing turns to Eric Kot. Uh...good luck. The results are as you’d expect: plotless, gag-filled mayhem with one comedy star to carry the whole shebang. Sadly, it doesn’t work. Eric Kot tries to be funny, but he's so annoying that the paint may peel from your walls. Not a keeper. (Kozo 1996)
