    Hong Kong Ending Thoughts, Series Thoughts

    Well.. what can i say.



    I dont think this ending is very TVB-like. A lot of people died just in the last episode.. & i think this makes the series better. Not that i like to see people dying.. its just an ending that TVB doesn't have often.

    I thought Fala died at the end, but then she actually lives. Too bad TVB doesn't tell us what happened to her though.

    It is a happy ending kind of, with Bo Chi Lam re-opening & stuff.

    I really hope this series will at least get nominations for the Awards Ceremony.
    If any of my old files are down, send me a PM and I'll see if I can re-upload it.

    i saw the ending of Kenneth Ma really predictable...sorta, i knew a karma type of ending would happen to him
    as for Mok Gwai Lan, im not sure if she actually re-opened Bo Chi Lam in HK, but she definitely started teaching Hung Gar there

    i have to say im kind of disappointed in this series as a whole, too little focus on Mok Gwai Lan

    ^ yeh.. agree. considering the title for this drama is "lui kuen" it only focused towards her when she got married to wong fei hung.
    Watched all last 3 episodes! Kinda predictable for sam shui ending! Can't believe he was still trying to use shuet kiu on the train! [what I think].
    I too - also thought ah fa died.. but nope. lol.

    But dont you all agree that it isn't like any other ending? I surely didn't expect THAT many people to die.

    Yes, Sam Shui ending was predictable.. but kinda sad how he still went evil the very last moment until he died

    yeah! I know.. I too didn't expect that many people to die!! Didn't want lui si fu to die! It was his birthday too!! OMG!
    I didn't think sam shui would actaully hit him till he dies, cos if he did die - he wouldn't know where the diary was!!

    man where did Sam Shui's wife get a knife from on the train? -_-'

    My sister thinks she had it up her sleeves

    that scene was satisfying

    back in the day, there weren't inspections before boarding a train, no x-rays or securities so as long as youre not looking suspicious, no one will search you, I knew she would kill Sam Sui

    reason: one scene where she tries to commit suicide, Kenneth comes and says all sorts of nasty stuff to her and ends by saying "ill make sure ill send a mourning card (fa pai) when you die", right there and then i thought "man if she lives, she would definitely kill him

    not to mention, right before she kills him, he used her just to get on the train...is she that forgiving, i dont think so =)

    although last thoughts on the series, im extremely impressed with Liu Xuan and her Hung Gar...I do take hung gar and knows Fu Hok, and seeing her perform it, was good, it was flawed, but a lot better than the guy who played Wong Fei Hung. She has good stance, and energy...very impressed with Liu's first acting job. I hope TVB gives her more chances and offers a long term contract with her

    For a moment, I thought she was going to shoot him with the gun that he had but stabbing was definitely more satisfying to watch...

    The ending was pretty predictable though. The series in general was alright. I enjoyed watching Liu Xuan and Bosco's acting the most, probably because their characters were the most interesting. Also after this drama, I really wouldn't mind not seeing Kenneth Ma and Fala Chan for a while...

    the ending was pretty good. it seemed kinda rushed like in most tvbs.
    anyone know what happened to tong jung bak's wife? i might have missed what happened but it seems like one of them just vanished

    i'm disappointed in the drama in general. Female Fist...most content in the drama didn't even focus on her. And the ending....SO PREDICTABLE. Everything is predictable. Some fights are bad, too. I like Relic of an Emissary so much better.

    Good series overall with some lacking and stupid scenes. Also too little action from Liu Xuan, she's the only one who knows Kung Fu in real life, want to see more action though. I liked how Kenneth Ma went evil, the proces is somewhat understandable as he used to get ass kicked and laughed at back than.

    Liu Xuan has no kung fu background whatsoever, she was a gymnast. I believe Power Chan might actually have some background. I remember they did an interview back in "Once Upon a time in China", and most cast on there has a little background in martial arts (Power was Buck Tooth So in Wong Fei Hung in USA)

    fact of the matter is.. everyone dying is very TVB. Most of the stuff is predictable, but they just kept trying to add a twist to it.

    Even if Mok Gwai Lan was supposed to marry Wong Fei Hung, the story was is pretty bad. Like Ah Fa, didn't she obviously tried to distract Gwai Lan from being with Ah Lung, which was why she was trying to trick Gwai Lan in sayin she loved WFH. So yea.. what else is there to say.. The good guy becomes bad and kills everyone else in his path.. TVB for ya. I did find the Child Kidnapper character funny though. He just kept trying to kidnap kids at the beginning of the series and then turns good all of a sudden lol.

    This is pretty interesting site, talks about the real history of WFH. I guess he married 4 times and had a bunch of kids.

    im not sure if that video is real or not, i never heard of her doing performing hung kuen in opera. And its too blurry to actually see if thats her. And my sifu told me Gwai lan was the 3rd and not the 4th...
