I quite like them. They have to condense the story a lot and make key changes to keep the movie intact in a short span (it is three movies but the story is huge). Alexander Fu Sheng works well as Guo Jing. Huang Rong is played by a different actress in the first movie than the second and third (but both actresses are good). I think if you are a fan of the story, the biggest let down is they breeze through the early part of the story. It is a chang cheh movie but he is definitely trying to do a proper wuxia movie in my opinion with this one. My suggestion is try the first movie, and if you like it watch the next two (I think it really picks up with 2 and 3). The fourth movie (Brave Archer and His Mate) is really the beginning of Return of Condor Heroes (and the actors get all swapped around for that now). You don't really need to see that one.Anyway, can anyone tell me about the Brave Archer movies? I've never seen them before, and I was wondering how good they are. I mean, I pretty much like everything I've seen by Shaw Brothers, but some are obviously better than others.
