    Default List of all Wuxia movies based on novels

    Guys,

    I thought about starting this thread in the movie section, but I don't think anyone in there are particularly wuxia buffs like us over here. So, I decided to put this start the thread in Wuxia Fiction section.

    Basically, let's try to come up with a list of all Wuxia movies based on Wuxia novels ONLY.

    I believe Ken has this list created a long time ago in the old Wuxia discussion forum, do you still have the link for that ?

    Nonetheless, let's create a new one here

    let's organized it this way...

    Under a specific Wuxia Author

    Movie name - Year Produced - Original novel name
    A brief description of the movies, comments, synopsis, stars, loyalty level, etc

    Ok, let's do it.

    There's also an earlier version of the Feihu Wai Zhuan made in the late 70's or early 80's. Loved that one.

    I wished they'd release The Sword of Many Loves in the USA. I really liked that version.

    Default XAJH the movie

    Laughing in the Wind (2001 or so)
    Serial-to-movie Director: Huang Jianzhong
    Martial Arts Director: Yuen Biao
    Cast: Li Yapeng, Xu Qing, Wei Zi, Miao Yiyi
    Based on Jin Yong's Smiling Proud Wanderer (Xiao Ao Jiang Hu / XAJH)
    This is the CCTV / Zhang Jizhong / Li Yapeng / Xu Qing serial cut down to movie-size.

    Question: Does "Stormriders" (with Ekin Cheng and Aaron Kwok, I think) count? It's based on Ma Wing Shing's works. If it does, please add that, plus "Zhonghua Yingxiong" [中华英雄], also with Ekin Cheng.

    There was also a version of HSDS back in the early 80's. They split it into 2 parts. They did the same with the Jet Li version except the 1980's one actually had 2 parts whereas they only made part 1 of the Jet Li version.

    There's also an old movie about Xie Xiaofeng - Third Master's sword, with him fighting Yan 13 at the end and beating him in a really well-written twist at the end. You think Yan won, but then suddenly you see what really happened (but you missed it because it was too fast) and Xie is the winner. Can't remember any of the actors at all.

    A question for all Shaw brothers fans out there, though - I'm looking for a very old movie which I saw when I was a kid of about 8 or 10. It was about this vampire Wu Shinhan and how he kills this princess of a martial arts palace, and the hero teams up with the queen and hunts him down. In the course of action they meet a gang of warriors (which include a young monk carrying a buddha behind his back, and old monk, an old man in the likeness of the Bride's wuxia teacher in Kill Bill 2) all of whom get killed apart from the hero and the queen. Any ideas? =)

    Does 'Saviour of the Soul (1991)' count? It's chinese title is '91 Shen Diao Xia Nu'.

    Also, is 'The Three Swordsmen (1992)' based on any wuxia novel?

    To Kidd,

    Thanks for all the contribution, I'm still trying to figure out how to compile them at the end

    I'm not sure whether 'The Three Swordsmen' starring Andy Lau and Brigitte Lin was based on a Wuxia novel or not, anyone ?

    'Savior of the Soul' should be considered since it actually follows ROCH storyline, the only difference is the setting is during our Modern day. It actually has two parts : Savior of the Soul 1 & 2

    To HuangYuShi,

    Thanks for that huge list, some of the movies in your list are actually listed on my original list already. The biggest headache is perhaps some of these movies have so many different titles.

    For example 'Kung Fu Cult Master' 1993 starring Jet Li based on Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre aka Yi Tian Tu Long Ji' is also called 'The Evil Cult,' 'Kungfu Master,' and 'The Lord of the Wu Dang' in its US video release.

    Cast: Zhang Duofu (Chen Jialuo), Liu Jia (Huo Qingtong), Da Shichang (Qian Long), Ayi Nu'er (Princess Fragrance), etc.

    Note to Temujin: I think this is the predecessor to your "New Tales Of The Flying Fox (1984)".
    Sounds like it, let's just put in on the list first.
    The one I had starred Felix Wong

    I put it on the list already as Demi Gods & Semi Devils, just not sure about the year of production. Thanks ... 1982

    *Huang Shuyi was Li Yuanzhi in the 1976 TVB serial of The Book and the Sword.
    I wonder if this is the same as 'Brave Archer & his Mate' aka 'Brave Archer 4'

    This sounds like 'Savior of the Soul 1'

    This is 'Savior of the Soul 2'

    Based on Jin Yong's HSDS.
    This is 'KungFu Cult Master'

    Can we considered these two movies based on Wuxia novels, I believe they are both based on comics, are they not ?

    You are welcome! Sorry about the duplicates. My data source is in Chinese and I tried to remove as many of them as I went along ... or the list would have been longer!

    I saw a movie recently with Jet Li as Zhang Sanfeng and Michelle Yeoh as his "partner" (not Guo Xiang, definitely!). I think it is called Taichi Master or something like that. I must have gotten it confused with Kungfu Cult Master, that's why I added "The Leader of the Evil Sect" to the list, thinking that it was different.

    Up to you! You're the boss of this thread!
    But Ma Wing Shing doesn't do novels. His works are all in comics.

    I'm not sure whether 'The Three Swordsmen' starring Andy Lau and Brigitte Lin was based on a Wuxia novel or not, anyone ?

    'Savior of the Soul' should be considered since it actually follows ROCH storyline, the only difference is the setting is during our Modern day. It actually has two parts : Savior of the Soul 1 & 2
    You are welcome.

    Compiling them according to authors (the format u are currently using) seems good. After u group the movies according to authors, u can subgroup them acccording to the novels the movies are based on. Lastly u can arrange the movies either in alphabetical order or according the year of release/production.

    Hope this suggestion helps.

    I've found some info on 'The 3 Swordsmen'. It is not based on a wuxia novel but a popular HK manga called 'Dao Jian Xiao' ( 刀劍笑 ).
