    Though I must say, its a pity its not Jet Li 27 yrs on taking on the role of Z3F.

    When it comes to on screen martial arts, Jet does the soft styles best. Donnie is better for the hard styles.

    I think Donnie can pull it off, but yeah, Jet would have been a much more fitting casting choice.

    Donnie as Tse Tsun might have been great, though.

    Here's a bit more info:

    Looks like this is a retelling set twenty years or so from the original. So the ages of the main casts make a bit more sense.

    Donnie Yen as Z3F, Wong Jing has a sense of humor.

    20 yrs on? The chicks look a bit young to be in their 40s but this is Wong Jing.... and still having ZCS and YSS in the story if this is really supposed to be a sequel of the 90s movie is mind boggling...

    in the original story, Wuji and his parents left ice-fire island and set out journey to central plains when Wuji was age 9 or 10.
    who knows the producer change the age of wuji at that time become 10+20 years = 30 years old ?? .
    it's wong jing after all, he never faithfull to original story

    The original one in the 90s ended after the big wudang fight when Zhao Min went back to the imperial court and told Wuji to go find her.

    According to the youtube link, 20 years later ZWJ goes to look for her.

    Not saying he can't pull it off, Donnie is a talented martial actor after all. Just saying that for soft styles like Taichi on screen, Jet is unbeatable and the definitive article.

    Oh and of course Fat Boss Z3F as portrayed by Sammo will always be an unforgettable classic!

    Now if only they would make a movie DGSD with Donnie as XF. Would love to see his take on a semi-realistic Dragon Palms. Bloody hell, this is Wong Jing, they could somehow stuff in DFBB if they wanted in HSDS....
