Ok, most of you are familiar with the storyline, so I won't go into too much detail. Basically the story follows the three main characters Xiao Feng, Duan Yu and Xu Zhu. Casting: Xiao Feng - Rating 8.5/10 Hu Jun did a good job in this series. He looked the part and had the build and stature for Xiao Feng. It's hard to say which Xiao Feng is better between him and Felix, but I think that...

The actor who played Xiao Feng is really convincing, although he's not so handsome but he's the highlight of this version. I could feel he relived the character of Xiao Feng, felt the emotion he brought from grieve, angry, confused, and his charisma as a leader of the sect, even when Ah Zhu disguised as Xiao Feng, the actor showed rare expression because it's Ah Zhu, not Xiao Feng. The story telling was captivating from the beginning, but then become weak and too long in last parts especially about Ah Zhi and Xu Zhu. For the ones who never read the novel, the ending was so harsh and left some unanswered questions.

I love episode 32!!! ^__^ I loved the fact that all the women (but a few) knew kung fu. I despised Christy Chung's character but she portrayed Madam Ma very well. Crystal Liu's performance as you can tell was beginner's acting but hey, she got the role of Dragon Girl so she's definitely going places. The Tian Shan Tong Lao story is my favorite story of all, hence the Maidens of Heavenly Mountain film =] though not true to the storyline.
