    Never seen Tiger Hill Trail, Fok Dung Kok, nor Chui Kuen Chuen Mou Kei.

    Amongst the ones I've seen:
    1) Dynasty 2) Theen Cham Peen 3) Princess Cheung Ping 4) Legendary Fok 5)Charn Jarn (I am assuming you mean the sequel to Legendary fok ) 6) Super Hero 7) Four Constables.

    You're thinking of Chui Kuen Wong Mou Kei, right? Not the HSDS Cheung Mo Kei.

    From those I've seen, Teen Cham Been is arguably the most spectacular and grand. Wong Mo Kei has a very comic feel to it, and I just don't like Ng Kong. From what I remember of Four Constables, it was also pretty good, but I can't remember that much of it. I'm watching Tiger Hill trail at the moment, and although it's a bit slow, it's very well done.

    In terms of fighting, I'd rate Teen Cham Been, Tiger Hill Trail, Four Constables, Drunken Fist - apart from Moon Lee, Lau Kar Yoong and that Shaw Brothers master whose name I forgot (he played Ouyang Feng in the Shaw brothers LOCH), the rest of the people fighting in Drunken Fist relied too much on CGI.

    The best one is Fist of Fury with Donnie Yen

    You should watch Tiger Hill Trail. Saw it again early this year. Such an exciting and addictive series! I've never watched Dynasty or Theen Cham Peen. Is it worth rewatching after all these years?

    Haha. Yes, it was Chui Kuen Wong Mou Kei! No wonder it didn't sound right. I wouldn't rate that series too highly.

    I do plan to eventually watch Tiger Hill Trail. There is just so many other great ATV kungfu/wuxia series out there to watch and rewatch, and so expensive. Yes after all these years, Dynasty and Theen Cham Peen is worth rewatching. After rewatching, I actually appreciated these 2 series and ATV even more than when I last watched them - I can't say that for a lot of the older series (and that goes for both ATV and TVB).

    I liked Theen Cham Peen more, but because of some plot holes toward the end, I had to rate Dynasty as the better series.




    Can somebody fill me in on this series - Chui Kuen Wong Mou Kei - actually never heard of it?
