This is the third chapter of Jin Yong's famous trilogy which also includes Legend of the Condor Heroes and Return of the Condor Heroes. Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre tells a story of Zhang Wu Ji's (or Chang Mo Kei or Thio Bu Ki, depending on the different Chinese dialects) adventure from an ordinary man to an accomplished martial artist and all around hero. During this adventure, he met Zhao Min, a cunning but beautiful Mongolian princess and Zhao Zhi Ruo, a seemingly sweet priestess in training. These two, as well as many other characters in the series, provide the majority of conflict for Wu Ji's adventure. Written by
The actual literal translation of the title of this movie is: The Slaying of the Dragon by the Heavenly (Sword).
When this television was shot, it was among one of the earliest cooperation between China and Hong Kong in the post-Cultural Revolutionary era.
The scenery nearly twenty years ago was beautiful, but very unfortunately, the site no longer existed because due to excessive animal husbandry, the vegetation was gone and the place turned into a desert now.
This television series has an unexpected effect of reminding people the harsh reality of environmental disaster.
