Greed Of Man

Reviewed by: Charbydis October 11, 2005

Rating: 5.0 out of 5

Greed Of Man ("Dai Si Doi" = The Great Era") I went on a shopping spree in Hong Kong last year and bought a lot of old TVB series. One of the best and most longed for series I bought was "Greed of Man". I watched it when I just started senior primary, and even now, I rank it as one of the best works by TVB. I was even more sure of my...

"The Greed of Man" is a memorable series which is one of the best series I believe that TVB has produced in the past decade. My recommendation is it is worth watching and if you intend to see it, stop reading at the end of this paragraph. Skip to the analysis unless you are really determined to read the summary. A quick summary of a very story (the other review is better for story outline): The...

Rating: 4.5 out of 5

"The Greed of Man" is a classic modern series that TVB had made in the early 90s. Casting Adam Cheng Siu Chow in a rare antagonistic--yet acclaimed--role as the big and stupid Ding Hai, "Greed" tells a tale of stocks, vengeance, greed, and tragedy.

Highly memorable and deeply moving series, with an unforgettable main cast ensemble. It definitely stood out amongst the mediocre action, wuxia and crime drama fluff churned out process-line-like during that time. This one actually had meaning and a purpose in its production. It's didactic and very inspirational.

Many TVB series can also be bogged down with story arcs that make so many twists and diversions, you almost forget how it started by the end of it all (Man in the Net I'm looking at you). However, with this one, it's much more comprehensible and easier to visualise the overall path of the story.

There are some flaws which held it back from being a perfect series in my eyes, but if you want a riveting and engrossing piece of drama, The Greed of Man surely won't disappoint.

This is definitely one of the most dramatic and touching Chinese dramas that my family has seen. There are many heartbreaking as well as funny scenes...but most of all, it really makes you think about honour, justice and the faults of man.
