Storyline

In 1864, the death of the emperor of China's Taiping rebellion gives the rival Ch'ings an opportunity to attack. They break into the Taiping capital; the emperor's son goes into hiding, taking with him his family's invaluable sword. The loyal army chief, Gao Dekum, wants to find the young man and reinstall him as emperor of the heavenly kingdom of great peace. But he is double-crossed by Bei Wenbing. Several years later, after ardent training in kung fu, Gao's son Yulong and his daughter are ready to avenge their father's death and lead the Taiping loyalists into battle against the Ch'ings. A showdown between Yulong and Bei appears inevitable. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Martial arts flick of another kind
30 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie actually is: the Love and Hate of The Heavenly Kingdom.

This martial arts flick made in China is different than other martial arts in that unlike others which is mostly based on the novels written by contemporary writers, this one is based on folklore.

However, the folklore is completely fake because after failed Tai-Ping uprising, people sympathetic to the uprising hoped that there would be a chance to uprise again, and spread the rumor of prince had not died while in reality he did die. Although such folklore had absolutely no historical value, it is a good source of literal source from which this martial arts flick is rooted from.
