YesAsia Editorial Description

Created by martial arts novelist Gu Long, Chor Lau Heung is one of the most legendary heroes in Chinese fiction. Charming, chivalrous, and skilled in swordplay, the character was first made famous on television by veteran actor Adam Cheng. In 1984, TVB aired The New Adventure of Chor Lau Heung, with the dashing Michael Miu as the man in white opposite the late Barbara Yung. Current movie star Simon Yam co-stars in a villainous role in this classic Hong Kong drama.

Having withdrawn from the martial arts world, the carefree Chor Lau Heung leisurely wanders the land with his female companions. When he decides to visit a friend, however, troubles immediately seek him out. Through a series of mishaps and suspicious set-ups, Chor is framed for the theft of the Xue family sword and the deaths of various notable martial arts masters. The mysteries continue to pile up when he encounters old friend Yi Dian Hong (Wai Tin Ci), who appears to be being controlled by someone. A sinister conspiracy is brewing in the martial arts world and it all points to the Bat Cult led by the notorious Bat Prince...

Product Information

Produced by: Xiao Sheng

Mysterious mood, meticulous ratiocination and furious fight scenes make The New Adventure of Chor Lau Heung a classic martial arts costume drama.

After leading a sequestered life with his three intimate female friends, Chor Lau Heung (Michael Miu) returns on the occasion of his good friend Zo Hing Hau's birthday. At Zo's, he encounters many mysterious incidents, all of which turn out to be the tricks played by Zo's only daughter and her loved man Sit Bun, son of Zo's mortal enemy in an attempt to do away with the resentment between the two families. Knowing the truth, Chor decides to help them in secret. By chance, however, Sang Siu Ching (Barbara Yung) learns their plan and accidentally reveals it to Zo, who later unintentionally kills his own daughter, followed by Sit's suicide. Due to his interference in the whole thing, Chor gets wrongly suspected of stealing Sit's priceless sword and murdering some big figures with it. His life suddenly wanted by the whole martial world.

After that, Chor runs into another good friend Yee Dim Hong (Austin Wai), once a famous professional killer, whose wife is murdered by a secret organization headed by Mr. Bat, who wants Yee to return to the martial world to work for him. To help his friend and to clear his own name, Chor is adamant to look into the organization to reveal Mr. Bat's true identity as Yuen Tsui Wan (Simon Yam), a man with a complicated origin and that he founded the organization for some unknown reason. As everything begins to unfold, Chor finds himself with an unavoidable duel of life or death with Yuen...

DVD picture quality not bad Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Unlike what another reviewer said, this DVD set does not look like VCD. It looks just like a DVD should look, albeit with average picture quality due to the age and the source. But an average DVD still looks way better than a great VCD. The picture is more solid and doesn't break up and look blocky like VCD. All discs in the set are dual-layered, so the bit rates are high. This is just what I expected an 80s TV show shot on videotape would look. If you look at those DVDs of RTHK TV shows from the 80s they look the same way too.

But the other reviewer is right in saying that the credits only play once at the beginning and end of each disc, not each episode. The credits are always accompanied by the main theme song. Those who watched the original broadcasts would know that the closing credits were accompanied by an alternate theme song. On this set, the alternate song was never heard. Well, I can always open my ipod to hear it. To me, this is a minor quibble.

SERIES OF 1980's Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Tai Seng need to release more old classic series of late 1970's to late 1980's like The Great Vendetta,The Giants,The Brothers ,The Good,The Bad & The Ugly to name a few in uncut version rather than releasing recent series which is easily available from renting.Those old series which is not easily available nowadays is good for collection and will refresh their memories of old. Please bear in mind that viewers like to collect old series rather than new ones.

Review of the DVD release Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
This series is a classic and a favorite from TVB's golden age from the 80s. I can't be un-biased on the story and the content, so let's leave it that if you enjoy wuxia stories, you should enjoy this. Those hoping for a faithful retelling of Gu Long's story though may be disappointed to learn this version has embellishments not found in the original.

On to the DVD release. I had watched and re-watched this series on video-tape to the point I could quote lines from the show. I jumped at the chance to buy the VCDs when they came out. While disappointed they were edited in content (as many of the VCD releases were), it was better than nothing, yet I still hoped a DVD set with an un-edited version would be released.

So naturally I pre-ordered the DVDs the second it was available. I'm re-watching this now and here are my thoughts so far: the video transfer is more like a VCD than DVD quality. It's certainly watchable and beats any videotape hands down, but don't expect anywhere near the crispness and clarity DVDs can offer. The opening and ending songs are cut except for the very first and last ones. Hoping to see who starred in each episode? No such luck - info cut. There are parts of the show where the transfer is so dark the scene is barely watchable. It lasts only a few minutes, but is a huge distraction. There are also a parts where the transfer is so poor, you swear you were watching it on a VCR with a dirty head. Pretty it ain't.

Now on to the good. So far I don't see any scenes cut. In fact, a scene missing from the VCD release seems to have been restored, which gives me hope this truly is an un-edited version. I don't need English subtitles, but I did check them out of curiosity. General awkwardness aside with the translation of the wuxia genre into English that is to be expected, the subtitles seemed accurate, which should keep sub fans happy. 40 episodes are split on 8 discs though the case leaves much to be desired - the jacket looks like someone copied this on a photocopier. For value, this set is far less expensive than the original 2 sets of VCDs, making this a bargain in comparison.

Verdict? This set is a must only for crazy fans of the show (like me) who've been salivating for a DVD release and will buy it regardless of quality, or for those who must have subtitles. Hence the 3 stars. I wonder if it's worth holding my breath for a restored version of this show on DVD with the quality it deserves.

Agree with previous comment by capentalc. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
1980s series are the best (story line, actors/actresses, clothing and just to name a few). So glad that Taiseng/TVB released this series on DVD. Still waiting on ' The return of Luk Siu Fung' by Alex Man and a few others oldies series on DVD. Like say ' Flying fox of snowy mountain' by Ray Lui for example.
