Storyline

This is the first chapter of Jin Yong (Louis Cha)'s famous trilogy which also includes "Return of the Condor Heroes" (Shen Diao Xia Lu) and "Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre" (Yi Tian Tu Long Ji). Legend of the Condor Heroes (She Diao Ying Xiong Zhuan/Sia Tiauw Eng Hiong) is a story that deals with a lot of issues but mostly concerned with the adventure of Kwok Jing and Wong Yung, the two people who ended up creating the Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre which would become the major issue in "Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre". Kwok Jing, the hero of the story, is an honest, loyal, and brave man even if he is a slow learner and not very clever. Because of his kindness, however, he is often manipulated by many people, especially by his Godbrother, Yeung Hong . On the other hand, Kwok Jing's travelling companion, Wong Yung, is a beautiful and clever girl who can easily tell if a person is out to take advantage of Kwok Jing's kindness. Wong Yung, however, has her own personality flaws. She was at ... Written by Garten

Good acting makes a difference
17 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In this age when special effects are the rage, this classic still stands out. Although special effects are minimal and somewhat a weak effort, the actors have truly brought out the essence of this novel by Jin Yong on to the television.

The most notable features of the film are the scenes of Guo Jing and Huang Rong. The casts, Barbara Yung and Felix Wong are a great duo. The acting by the late Barbara Yung is so natural and outstanding that she has won many fans till present time.

The rest of the cast have done a great job in putting together this classic. It deserves an excellent rating.

PS: did anyone notice the funny man Stephen Chow acting in very minors in the film?
