Overview

Cinematographer Andrew Lau directed this Hong Kong martial arts fantasy from a Manfred Wong screenplay. Wong based his script on a Chau Ting screenplay adapted from the long-running manga by Ma Wing-shing. Martial arts ruler Lord Conqueror (Sonny Chiba) adopts two youngsters as disciples, and a decade later, the two -- Wind (Ekin Cheng) and Cloud (Aaron Kwok) -- are rivals for the affections of the Lord Conqueror's daughter Charity (Kristy Yang). When they duel, Charity is accidentally killed, and Cloud loses an arm. Muse (Shu Qi) takes care of Cloud, and her father gives Cloud his own arm for future fights. Wind seeks some magical stones, needed to help him in his duel with the Sword Saint (Anthony Wong). Filming began May 1997 in China's Sichuan province with CGI effects added by Hong Kong's post-production house Centro, co-producers of the film. This manga has been serialized since 1989, but only the first third has been adapted here.

This Chinese movie was AWESOME! It had the romance, the fighting, and the drama and also a tear jerker. I can't believe this movie did not come out on American theaters. The characters are so beautiful and gracious. It has all the qualities of being one of the best fighting movies out there.

This is the best martial arts fantasy film I've ever seen. The story line and characters blow Crouching Tiger Hiden Dragon out the water. Excellent!!!

this movie is indeed pretty good, I have not seen another movie where actual people would interact with computer animation and make it look like the person is actually doing it. Well i mean like powering up or creating an energy ball, basically the same type of powers used on Dragonball Z. the only thing i didnt like about it is that there was way too much time in between fights that almost made me lose interest, but the fight scenes made up for that. However there is one movie like this one only it exceeds this movie beyond your wildest imagination. That movie is called Zu Warriors. It came out in China and i know for a fact it will be out in theatres in America soon. so all of you reading this will understand what i am saying sooner or later.

Not only are the actors good-looking, but they are great actors. I have grown up with many chinese martial arts movies. The recent martial art movies don't blow me away, like Crouching Tiger and Iron Monkey. This movie is great! It's undescribable. You have to watch it to believe it. It is love, drama, and action filled. If you love fantasy and martial arts this movie is for you. I am so crazy bout this movie that i got the VCD, DVD, and even the soundtrack. Get it and enjoy it.
