The Corruptor (1999)
Synopsis: The Corruptor is a 1999 American action thriller film directed by James Foley, starring Chow Yun-fat and Mark Wahlberg. The film was released in the United States on March 12, 1999.

Phan watches as Chen takes a card from his hand and flips it onto

the table. Ace of Spades. Phan drops a three of Clubs. Back and

forth until Phan's empty and Chen's left with one card. He smiles,

taking his time as the fat man wipes sweat from his brow.

PHAN:

Throw it!

Phan's poised to strike. Chen drops the card. Jack of Clubs. Both

men move, but Chen's quicker. He pulls the card from the table

letting Phan slam his hand on nothing but wood.

WHACK!

Phan holds his palm as Chen picks up the cards and another five.

He shuffles the deck skillfully with his right hand as his left

fishes a smoke from his pocket.

PHAN:

It's late. No Fukienese Dragons come here. I close now...OK?

On cue, the bell over the front door sounds trouble.

INT PHAN HO'S LAMPS - NIGHT

The youths entering the shop are FUKIENESE. Two, Jack and "The

Tall Kid", we recognize as the shooters from Wing's. One of them,

Fuke #1, stays outside to stand guard as the others approach Chen.

TALL KID:

(Fukienese)

Time to pay.

They move purposefully toward the two men as Chen drops a

seven of clubs on the table and turns to Phan.

CHEN:

You speak Fukienese?

Phan nods as the young thugs reach the table. Chen turns over

a four of spades from the frightened shop owner's hand.

CHEN:

Tell 'em they're in the wrong store.

TALL KID:

Fuck you.

CHEN:

Learned some English, good for you.

Chen pulls his .45 and lays the cannon on the table.

PHAN:

Are you crazy?

Chen drops a Jack of hearts on the pile, covers it uncontested

and takes a five from Phan's ever shrinking pile.
