"钢头皇帝"这电影片本是法国著名的小说 L'Homme au Masque de Fer,邵氏公司把内容改一点。故事很不错,太多密谋 。男主角是韩国英俊的明星。 李靑演一国公主。五颜六色之服装,布景也很美,很精彩。

Is this movie so good to deserve such a high rating? I only remember being irritated by Shen Yi's bitchy character and the fat king but very little of Li Ching. Perhaps it's because her eyes were so small pre-plastic surgery. Must watch it again.

Hi Terence, glad to see your comments again.

As why such a high rating for this movie, guess I like its intriguing plot, Ho Meng-hua's fast-paced direction and the music scores that made one's heart racing ... hee...

I think Shen Yi's bitchiness fits well into her role and that king, haha, ya he is fat but his acting skill is still commendable isnt ?
