A great companion to "The Duel".

"This is a great TV series that premiered in mainland China. It follows the wuxia novel of Gu Long in his Lu Xiao Feng series. In particular it covers the third, and most popular, novel about a duel and a plot to take the Imperial throne. The characters in this version are all much younger than in the novels, but do an overall good job. In particular Christopher Lee (not the same one from Lord of the Rings) does a great job as the Shadow Swordsman Ximen. Jimmy Yin does a charming job as Lu Xiao Feng. If you always wanted to watch a soap opera in the orient with lots of fighting and intrigue, this is your DVD.The actual series is 20 episodes long, about an hour each. This weighs in at a little over three hours, so of course they cut a lot. Personally I would like to find a DVD version of the entire series, but they don't have that, not even one that is just subbed. Nonetheless this is a charming "movie" and tells the same story as "The Duel". It even has an audio commentary by the same gentlemen, which is good as well.In conclusion I found this a charming piece, but you can judge for yourself."
