I finished this series a while back, and I loved it!! I really don't understand why people didn't like it or thought it was a failure. It was a great series in my opinion. I've also seen Legends of the Condor Heroes (2008), but I haven't watched any other versions.
There is absolutely nothing that I can say wrong about this movie; this movie is such a beautiful movie; it will take me a a week or two to stop thinking about it. I know it's just a movie but I was so into the characters and the story line. It will make you laugh, smile, and cry!! My heart still hurts!
