Synopsis and Plot Summary

It continues the cliffhanger from The Kung Fu Cult Master where Zhang Wuji heads out to find Zhao Min in Dadu. Unlike the righteous hero in the novels, Zhang Wuji's journey is much darker as he turns vengeful.

Zhang Wuji (Raymond Lam) takes the Nine Yang Manual back to the Ice Fire Island. Under Xie Xun's (Elvis Tsui) tutelage, he finally masters a divine martial arts technique and becomes attuned to the way of the king. Having been oppressed for being weak, Zhang Wuji realizes that the only way he can take revenge is to seize power because his real enemy is the political force behind Cheng Kun (Yu Xing). It takes Zhang Wuji 20 years before returning to Bright Peak. He is no longer indecisive and distracted by romantic entanglements because he is set on his goal to do whatever it takes to become the Ming Sect leader and then to become King.



Fun Facts

  • On December 21, 2019, Hong kong director Wong Jing shared a conceptual poster on Weibo to announce that he was making a Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber movie.
  • Since Wong Jing said that Zhang Wuji will be looking for Zhao Min in Dadu, many were excited for a proper conclusion to the 1993 film Kung Fu Cult Master which ended in a cliffhanger.
  • Filming began in 19 Fengjingqu, Xinchang County, Zhejiang Province on January 2, 2020 but was halted temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • It features a star-studded cast of Hong Kong veteran actors.
  • After the first posters was revealed, there was much criticism about 40-year-old actor Raymond Lam being too old to play Zhang Wuji. Wong Jing responds on livestream, "I don't think Raymond Lam is old because Zhang Wuji reappears when he's thirty something years old so Raymond's age is just right and he does action scenes well."
