YesAsia Editorial Description

The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung is one of a series of films about the 18th century Chinese Emperor Chien Lung. Unlike the usual dramatic historical epics from director Li Han Hsiang, the exploits of Emperor Chien Lung are lighthearted, swashbuckling affairs about a young, righteous Emperor who cared for the common man and would even journey incognito to get in touch with the people. The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung details one such journey, as Chien Lung and two of his subjects wander the countryside, getting into trouble and discovering the opinions and feelings of his loyal subjects. Based on the true exploits of one of China's most beloved rulers, The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung is an entertaining glimpse of a non-turbulent, peaceful China. Other films in the Emperor Chien Lung series include Adventures of Emperor Chien Lung and Emperor Chien Lung and the Beauty.

Product Information


  The 18th century reign of Emperor Chien Lung Has Proven to be a treasure trove for Hong Kong filmmakers, and director Li Han-hsiang, the acknowledged master of the costume drama, made a series of four blockbusters about the dashing, young swashbuckler's exploits. The scenario won the 1979 Best Adapted Screenplay Award and told of the monarch's incognito journey from beijing to southern China...and the imperial mayhem that ensues!

A voyage filled with delicious wit Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Emperor Chien Lung is determined to go on yet another of his incognito journeys, and this time there's a competition underlying his travels: an ongoing contest between Chien Lung (Lau Wing) and his treasurer Liu Yung (Lee Kwan). Treasurer Liu is determined to win a yellow imperial robe if he can prevail in his bets with the emperor.

Right from the outset of director Li Han Hsiang's 'The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung', the viewer knows he or she is in good hands. The look of the film is gorgeous, its production values first-rate, its cast is reliably good. The viewer expects to be entertained and most definitely is not disappointed.

The film presents a wide variety of interlocking stories, including a colorful tale in which Treasurer Liu must persuade reluctant artist Zheng (Yueh Hua, in a brilliant performance) to create a painting over the imperial seal, a vignette in which the undercover emperor comes to the defense of a beautiful young woman who really doesn't need to be defended (Kara Hui), a humorous encounter between the emperor, a tart-tongued barber, and the barber's wife (Wang Sha and Wang Lai), and the final story in which the cunning treasurer figures out how to win a seemingly unwinnable bet to gain the imperial robe. But, of course, it is the emperor who will end up having the last laugh.

'The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung' is a delight to which I will enjoy returning again and again.

The Voyage of Emperor Chien Lung Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The movie does not have a strong cast; however the actors have surprisingly performed well. The entire movie is full of humors and wits fighting... Probably credits should goes to the belated director Li Han Hsiang. Highly recommended.
