(the overall review was a deduction or summary of ll the other reviews below me)
1. story the story from my point of view was okay from the first 32 episodes but then all of the sudden the plot fell apart which distroyed my interest in the whole story ( am keeping the review short)

2. the acting for me was very poor the actors weren't interacting at all luhan was meant read more to play a pure and honesty and modest role but as i watched the story develop the love just seemed a bit.. fake the love didn't take time to develop they just out of no where feel in love . as for the actress bextiyar gulnezer is a very good actor as i admire her from "chinese paladin 5" and " the classic of the mountains and seas"
but this was not one of her best works so i rate it 7.5.

3. though i never really payed attention to the music in chinese dramas the music was i bit different from the fantasy element and story of the theme but i added all the reviews for the music and multiplied it by how many people that reviewed the drama below and got 11.5 and i ration the number to what i think it should get is 6.5

4. i never rewatched the drama because the story element fell apart during ep 32-the end

5. overall i got 6.5

A less tragic Nirvana in Fire meets Lord of the Rings!

I writing this review with 9 episodes left (I wanna take the rest nice and slow coz I don't want this awesome drama to end).

It's important to note that the drama went into production before the author finished writing the web novel, so if anything the movie version might be truer to the original work and differ from the drama. read more OK, enough of OT stuff, back to the core of review:


Fans of Lord of the Rings will rejoice that FotD is essentially a reimagining. You have the Star Formation that gives power to the Empress that is essentially the One Ring. It is essentially detrimental to Empress (it's actually something evil that is controlling her), yet she has trouble letting the precious-s-s go.

Then, there is CCS dagger-like sword that looks like Bilbo's Sting dagger. And of course the little dragon ZS is modeled after Smaug the Dragon from The Hobbit, but a good kind dragon, not an evil one. Then, when LL teased ZS with hard-to-guess riddles, that scene essentially imitated "Riddles in the Dark" between Bilbo and Gollum in The Hobbit.

Superimposed over this are scenes remiscient of Nirvana in Fire: Sick guy returns to the Capital to attain his destiny, elite guards getting murdered to frame someone, the main hero can't actually fight against powerful villains but uses his cunning to subdue them, an Imperial ruler that is cold and "heartless" even towards her own child, etc.

Nevertheless, the drama packs an awesome punch coz let's face it there is nothing new under the sun, only inspiration from some works that existed before!

Two stories are somewhat similar when you look at the relationships between the characters.

- Both male leads are outstanding doctors with little experience of fighting at the beginning
- Both female leads are the best disciples of a sect responsible to protect the world.

Fighter of Destiny, because its more extended, has more character growth and more arcs, but the feeling is the same.

    The plot seems interesting in the start and all things shows that this drama will be very good.
    unfortunatly the main lead actress for me broke this show and after 10 eps the story feels too slow.
    special effects are very worse for this show and there is too much talk abd dialogue without significative advance in the plot.
    watching this drama is like going to a boring course in school o_O
    by the way i drop it at episode 38 hhhhhhhh

      I've seen a little over half of the show and am still loving it.

      BTW, what crap effects were you referring to? They made this show as good as they could (until some other popular show where the TV drama version is essentially a crap teaser leading to the box office movie adaptation) without thoughts of the movie that just got green lit.

      Same here. I went into the show thinking it was a filler until something better comes along. Fortunately, it turns out to be the [better] filling!!

    Guli Nazha aka Xu Young, her expressions regardless happy, sad, suffering, worry or injure are all the same. I prefer princess luoluo and the little black dragon.

      Unfortunately, I have felt that way for the female lead in every one of her dramas. She constantly gets good roles, but shows zero emotion in all of them.

      it really does suck. Happened to me last year too with a different drama too.

      I did see Dramafever has a page for "Fighter of the Destiny" so they might be subbing it their when it finishes airing.

      Even if they are an official channel or they get licensing for it, the videos can be still be reported and taken down/put on private, because of how easy it is for some random person/company to go click report on YouTube.
