The Legend of the Swordsman? is the same movie as "The Swordsman 2". by JEFRYE61 March 29, 2010 - 9:01 PM PDT
Great movie... unfortunately this is an English dubbed version, without the original Cantonese language audio version track . This was a little different role for Jet Li, though being a little more light-hearted and joking, as opposed to his usually more serious acting style.

wasnt so impressed. by jeffsui January 23, 2004 - 7:58 PM PST

Maybe its because this is the english version and the dubbing is pretty bad -> or maybe its just the movie but I really didnt enjoy this film so much. I've seen better films by jet li. I did like the part where the horse got cut in half in the begenning however. This is a movie definitly ruined by bad english dubbing.
