An Overview: Based on Jinyong's novel "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" we follow our hero Linghu Chong through many adventures. We journey through, love, ambition, betrayal, friendship and much more. The Cast: Li Yapeng as Linghu Chong (8.5/10) I enjoyed his performance as he did very well overall. He really does bring out the playful Linghu Chong. However, sometimes his serious mood is a bit compromised and bland. I also felt that a vast amount of screen time was given to Linghu Chong. I didn't...

HOW WAS IT? I really really like this series. The book is my favorite book ever and I was afraid that they would mess it up but they didn't. They did make a lot of changes in the story which can be frustrating but it was still good. Why did they make Tian Bo Guang or Monk Cannot Have No Commandments and Elder Bamboo Green die? CHARACTERS: Ren Ying Ying is such a cool character. The Six Peach Tree Fairies are really...

When you want to talk about a series that this worth the five star rating, this has to be the series. CCTV's 2001 serial of "State of Divinity" (SOD), Jin Yong's Xiao Ao Jiang Hu novel, is one of the best series I have seen. Remind you, my favorite is still 1987's "The Condor Heroes". Plot Anyway, I won't go into too much detail about the plot. For those who haven't watched it, State of Divinity...

ATTENTION! This review contains spoilers. If you have not watched the serial, I advise you to read just the last paragraph to get a recommendation. ^_^ Xiao Ao Jiang Hu was written by Jin Yong in the 1960s. Although it's not as popular as The Condor Heroes Trilogy, it has a comparable twist of events and a very interesting plot. CCTV as the first Mainland China TV station to adapt one of Jin Yong's novels...

Excellent fighting choreography, everything looks real and natural, the best among all mainland Jin Yong adaptations. No ridiculuos CGI or unnecessary special effects. Most of the casting are great; Ren Ying Ying, Yi Lin, Madam Ning are my favorite. The beginning is a bit slow and less captivating to me, I mean, who cares about the great fight when you don't have chance to emotionally care about the characters (yet)? Those who already know the story can just skip it and start from episode 10 or 15. Those who don't, be patient. Even though it seems a bit boring, actually every character are important and everything will be paid off later with exciting story and climax ending. Lack of proper music also make this series a little bit 'silent', especially with slow camera that sometimes trying to show scenery without conversation or action. But believe me the story, some characters and fighting scenes are a-must-see for the wuxia drama lovers especially Jin Yong fans.

Awesome scenery. Best fights without much special effects. First 9 episodes were VERY BORING! Story wasn't interesting in general. Background music was absolutely terrible throughout the entire series except for the final battle. Watch it if you like swords fights with hardly any special effects.

This version is by far the best ever. Great cast, great scenery, great everything. Flawless. Highly recommended for everyone and if you don't watch this series, you are so missing out on a great performance.

I never read the novels of Jin Yong but this version of Smiling Proud Wanderer made me not like the story. I prefer Jet Li's Swordsman 2 over this one. It's ok. But it made me sad...
