Kung Fu Mahjong is a 2005 Hong Kong comedy film that combines the game of mahjong with martial arts. The movie stars Wah Yuen, Qiu Yuen, and Roger Kwok as the main characters. The plot revolves around a young man named Vincent (played by Roger Kwok) who is an expert at playing mahjong. His friends encourage him to participate in a high-stakes tournament, but Vincent is reluctant to do so. However, when his grandmother is kidnapped by a group of gangsters who want him to take part in the tournament, he has no choice but to compete.

At the tournament, Vincent meets Ah Fatt (played by Wah Yuen), an old master of the game who has become penniless due to his gambling addiction. Ah Fatt recognizes Vincent's talent and offers to teach him the ways of kung fu mahjong, a technique that combines martial arts with mahjong.

Together, Vincent and Ah Fatt form an unlikely team and take on their opponents in the tournament. Along the way, they encounter a colorful cast of characters, including a hot-headed triad member and a sexy female opponent who uses her seductive wiles to distract her opponents.

As Vincent and Ah Fatt progress through the tournament, they must use their skills in both mahjong and martial arts to outwit their opponents and save Vincent's grandmother. The movie offers plenty of humor, action, and twists and turns along the way, making it a fun and entertaining watch.

One of the highlights of the movie is the kung fu mahjong technique itself. This unique style of play involves using various martial arts moves to distract and intimidate opponents while playing mahjong. For example, Ah Fatt uses a technique called "Iron Finger" to slam his opponent's fingers on the table, causing them to lose concentration and make mistakes.

Another standout aspect of the movie is the cast. Wah Yuen and Qiu Yuen, who play the roles of Ah Fatt and Vincent's grandmother respectively, are both legendary Hong Kong actors who bring their considerable talent and charm to their roles. Roger Kwok also delivers a solid performance as the film's protagonist.

Overall, Kung Fu Mahjong is a fun and lighthearted movie that combines two seemingly unrelated activities into a unique and entertaining experience. It's a must-watch for fans of Hong Kong cinema and those who enjoy comedy and action films.
