"The wielder of Heavenly Sword and/or Dragon Sabre rules the world."
Cast & Credits
Acting/Cast: 7.5/10 ehhhhhh... I don't like any of the cast but they were ok. The choreography sucked lol. Those fake effects totally ruin all the serious mood. This is so lame lol. I prefer the 86 version over this because they didn't look so fake. I don't like the outfits.
Music: 7.5/10 ehhh
Rewatch Value: lol I would not rewatch this...
Overall: 7.5/10 it was ok. if you enjoy the fake modern wuxia effects then give it a try but otherwise go for the 86 version. speaking honestly, this drama failed so bad as an adaptation to the old drama... sorry.
