I have to say that this is the best HSDS I have seen, probably because I really love drama. I have watched this more than 8 times, seriously. I'm not lying! I love the chemistry between Lawrence and Gigi. Their scenes are so sweet and touching. I just gotta keep rewatching those parts. You'll know what I mean once you watch it. Gigi's extremely pretty in here. I love her outfits and her hairstyles. Her stubborn & smart personality fits...

Summary: If you like strong female-characters and in particular adore Zhaomin’s cunning, strength and wit, this might be your favorite version of HSDS. In my opinion, this is the closest-to-the-spirit-of-Zhaomin interpretation of Zhaomin to date, and is Gigi Lai’s pièce de résistance, where she takes her best type of role (smart but willful yet ultimately sympathetic) to a new level. If I could be intellectually honest and not let my memories of childhood taint my opinion, I would tell you that this...

This was one serial that I anticipated for a long time and my expectations were also great. I mean, there were many advertisements on TVB magazines and it was supposed to be a large production (a blunt translation for what I mean as an expensive and grand production). There are many reviews and summaries of this Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre story so I shall not waste time giving a plot synopsis or summary of...

"Heavenly Sword Dragon Saber"(HSDS) is a story that is quite different from other Jin Yong (JY) and wuxia stories. While the greatness and heroism of a wandering hero is certainly a common theme, the greatness of a clan is hardly depicted. In my opinion, what sets HSDS apart from other novels is its complex and detailed description of the organizations' structures, especially the Ming Sect / Beng Kauw. Surely, the story's not all about Ming...

Lawrence Ng, Gigi Lai, Charmaine Sheh, Damian Lau, Michelle Mei Shuet I'm a little disappointed after re-watching and truly noticing some analytical points, and I realize that I can't live through the storyline with my 9 year old eyes again. Re-watching it has really set the expectations I'll admit. I'm not going to critique and say this is the worst film ever, or the special effects is truly bad, or Charmaine should have replaced Gigi's role,...

I remember watching "The New Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber" (1986) with my mom when I was only a young child, about 5 or 6 years old. That was the first time I saw Tony Leung Chiu Wai. Since then I have been mesmerized by his captivating onscreen presence. As I grew older I started liking him more. His beautiful eyes speak volumes that no words can ever express, his voice makes me...

In the 70's version of "Heavenly", we had Adam Cheng Siu Chow star in the tv series claimed to have changed the style of future martial arts films, in the 80's it was Tony Leung Chiu Wai, 90's it was Steve Ma King To in Yueng Pui Pui's Taiwanese edition, while action star Jet Li Lin Kit also made an appearance as Cheung Mo Kei in a Wong Jing movie. The latest Jin Yong adaptation of...

This is probably the worst adaptation of HSDS that I've ever watched. Casting Lawrence was a joke while both Gigi and Charmaine weren't well rounded or capable enough to portray their respective roles of ZM and ZZR. The supporting cast weren't suitable either. If they were going to change the storyline drastically then they might as well made a new series as oppose to ruining such a well loved classic and disrespecting Jin Yong's work. No wonder he banned TVB from producing anymore of his novels. If you've never watched HSDS before then you might enjoy it but if you've watched any other version then this one will definitely fail in comparison.

I love this series!! Lawrence and Gigi is a great couple!! (In my opinion) I think the characters really fit their role. My fav. HSDS is this one and 1986 (with Tony Leung and Kitty Lai)

Michelle and Damian had so much chemistry in this series! If you are either a Michelle or Damian fan then you must watch this!

this series is not that bad. if you had watch the last 2 tvb 90s remakes of jing rong's trilogy, Return of the Condor Heroes 1994 and Legend of the Condor Heroes 1994, this series is actually not that bad. also like the last 2, it wasnt great. just average but with a jing rong plot, its enjoyable.
