This is not the first time that Chinese production adapted from one of the most famous Wuxia novels The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber. But the latest adaptation in 2019 got a very good quality we all can appreciate.
I read the book when I was 13 years old. It was a very memorable book for me about Wuxia. This one is the third book in the Condor trilogy. Amount the 3 of the trilogy, I like the last book the most.
There are 2 main factors made this Chinese drama so different from others: director and cast. I gave 10/10 thumb up to the director Jeffrey Chiang. I never watch his movies before but he has done a great job to direct this Tv series. Each scene and each episode has a very special target: tell a good story, follow the storyline and cut all the unnecessaries.
The cast in this Tv series is awesome, well performance actors and actresses. I only have a bit of issue with the lead actor. He seems too young and he is good at fighting scenes but when it came to the emotional moment, I wish to have someone else who could perform better. Maybe it is just my personal preference. However, he is not bad at all.
It is a bit difficult to have a trailer with English subtitle. I found this one on YouTube:
What to expect?
Everything has been well planned in advance. The conflicts are not just happened today. They have their own reason to exist.
The legend says whoever obtains the Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber can rule the world. It drives people to go after them.
There are secrets hidden in every plot of the story. The story itself is well-written. Each conflict has its own resolution but sometimes you have to wait the right moment.
It is a story of getting survived from our own difficulties with courage and positive thinking. I am sure you will enjoy the first episode.
Origonal Soundtrack (OST)
I like all the 5 OST of this series. Touching and meaningful, well-written for the show. This is one of the OST.
Where to watch with English Subtitle
I wish the production finds a good way to get more people to access to this TV series because it is a very good Chinese drama.
It’s available on Viki for some region.
And if you still have your DVD player, you can buy the whole set of this drama on Amazon.
