He is a good looking guy.

The drama, the action, the humor, the romance, the costumes and the locations all make for a very intriguing and creative movie series.

For Nic fans, this series is worth watching just to sit and gape at the man.

this series is really good. good acting, good fight scenes, engaging, fast-paced plot, very WELL-DONE bad guys, great romance, this show has it.
The acting is good, particularly Little Fish/Dicky Cheung. He was alternately the funny guy, the dependable older brother, the loyal friend, the passionate lover and the brains behind the gang. cheung was able to switch very naturally between these attributes, giving his Little Fish a very complex, real personality that the audience can fall in love with and become very attached to as the series progressed.
Nicholas tse, well, OK, he is hot. With that great luscious hair and those flowing snow-white robes, he was just gorgeous in his role as Flawless Flower. For Nic fans, this series is worth watching just to sit and gape at the man. However, Flower does a lot of disappearing in this series. He just vanishes for a long time and pops up unexpectedly when he feels like it. That somewhat distanced me from his Flawless Flower. I just didn't care too much about him. But Nic tse too was good in this role. He can play the ruthless killer (the fight scenes in this show, with him, are just fantastic),dumb "log" and inexperienced child very well. But as the series goes on, situations called for a different kind of acting from him and he was able to perform that as well, very admirably and convincing too. <note that moment in the bridge when Little Fish called him "useless". His look of child-like hurt and vulnerability was awesome and tied in so well with Flawless Flower's character.
fan bing bing, other than bringing her very good looks to the screen, does little to really affect the story. she was fun at the beginning with Little fish but got boring in the end.

The beginning of this series will drag a little.

I'm a Hong Kong cinema fan, but rarely have I found a series that entertains me as well as this series. The acting is great, the martial arts are good, the pace is fast (of course), and there are plenty of site gags, romance, drama, comedy, action. It's an involved and complex plot, but I enjoy it on many levels - with no sound, for instance, since the scenery is rich and beautiful and could stand as a character on its own, especially once you've watched with the sound and subtitiles. I enjoy the music, the colors, the witty dialog, the timelessness of the themes, the fresh and unique verbal encounters, the sense of wonder in many of the romantic exchanges. It's a series I feel comfortable and entertaining to watch with my mom, my kids, my friends, my spouse or all by myself. I'm not tired of it after 3 watchings (over time) of the 8 DVD's. What a treat!

This is a highly entertaining WUXIA series about two brothers separated at birth: Little Fish (the protagonist) was raised in a place called evil valley by a group of evil people who are really just misfits. His younger, and handsomer brother Flawless Flower, was raised by the women who killed his parents and has been raised to be the defender of the temple and to fight against the men who mistreat women (!).

As if this premise were not intriguing enough, this 8 disc series is very long and complicated! I agree with the other reviewer who said the villains are very well-done. None of them (Well, with the exception of Eunuch Liu) are entirely evil. I found myself really sympathizing with Biehe and his daughter even though they were bad. Flower is my favorite character... He is very hot... Especially in his white costume. I also like the relationship between the two brothers. While Little Fish grew up poor, he at least had a somewhat nurturing home life. Flower is taught very strictly by the masters of the Floral Palace.

Be warned, the first hour is perhaps my least favorite part of this series. Also, there is a lot of comedy, especially early on which takes a while to get used to... A touch more sophomoric than I like....If you persevere, however, you will discover this is a very addicting and well thought out series. Excellent!

5 stars.

This was a very entertaining series in many aspects. It captured the attention of everyone in the house of all age groups. Having only missed one or two episodes when it aired on AZN TV I still am looking forward to watching the entire series over again. I love the humor and the story line behind it all. It is a definite keeper.

A friend once told me that all the heros and heroines in the Chinese movies end up dying, but this is one movie that doesn't fit the bill. The drama, the action, the humor, the romance, the costumes and the locations all make for a very intriguing and creative movie series. The writer and the director are very clever in keeping you engaged in each of the characters and their individual stories that eventually weave and uncover the main plot of this drama series. Good and bad, black and white, young and old, laughter and tears, humans and gods are a continuous yin and yang experience. This is one Chinese movie purchase that's worth every penny. C.

What language was Handsome siblings filmed in? Cantonese or Mandarin?
Most of the other characters besides the two main ones spoke Mandarin while filming, but Dicky Cheung and Nicholas Tse spoke Cantonese, as they are from Hong Kong and it is their native language. I do believe that they dubbed their own character for the Mandarin version though.

Mandarin Language Track?
Yes, it does have a mandarin language track as well. I bought it and was pleased to see it had both.
