In the series Treasure Venture, Vicki Zhao plays the role of Lu Jian Ping, a very mischevious, playful, stubborn girl who enjoys walking around the streets dressed as a guy and playing tricks on people to gain fame. The series is mainly about a book that will teach the Ming emperor how to rule forever, and the many steps people take to find this book, including killing all within it's path. Jian Ping's father being a keeper of one of the keys to the book is therefore a target along with Jian Ping afterwards. Vicki plays this role to perfection after Huan Zhu Ge Ge! Written by ZZQ

TV Series, Movie Edit Entertains!
23 March 2015 | by george-844-384633See all my reviews

As with most TaiSeng releases of Chinese television shows, a lot of story is sacrificed to bring the running time from days of viewing down to around the 2 hour mark.

With Assassin Swordsman (originally Treasure Venture), we get a 2 hour edit of what is mainly every fight scene in the series. The average dubbing tells us a roughly knitted story of back stabbing, secret identities, saving the Shaolin Temple and love triangles that kinda works as it gets shadowed by the continuous displays of crazy, wire- fu and swordplay!

And I'm not complaining!

Featuring the awesome Vikki Zhao Wei and a host of familiar faces, including the little fat monk kid from Shaolin Popeye, Assassin Swordsman carries a lot of laughable moments due to budget constraints, none more-so than the animated skeletons in the beginning, yet keeps us highly entertained with its packed catalogue of lively characters, high energy martial arts battles and old school comedy that works okay, dubbing aside.

Its worth the watch, and with the English dub, is handy to play in the background without feeling that you are missing out on much!

Entertaining and a lot of fun...
