Just want to comment on how much the modernized effects ruin the action choreography in tvb series nowadays. The shaky camera and zoom effects :facepalm: Older tvb series have done it way better. The new after effects in the recent ancient dramas are pissing me off.

Personally, I think a lot of the older actors were just more physically fit, and many of them actually knew some martial arts. The last generation of actors all have their stuff done by CGI. Even then, they're not that convincing as none of them actually know what they're doing.

Look at this nigg jumpin' on some 32 Relic Ish..

of course action isn't as good as back then..

It's funny.. like there was a lot of action in beginning of the series. Fukin' that lighting effect after every punch, I was getting so tired of that. And now there's no fighting or action at all. This series is slowly down hill..

Also, they aren't doing ish like this..

^lol man that shit was tight back in the days but now it just don't fit, i'd rather have the hybrid ish in the late 90s etc. Also the new actors can't do that type of shit.

I kno i said it before in another post, but did anyone notice that the battle scenes in episode 30 were full of scenes taken from "twin of brothers"? Is TVB really THAT low and cheap? We kno that they're getting richer. (again.....wish i got screenshots.....but......)
