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?
