Wisely travels the world after the dragon pearl
30 May 2000 | by gerrytwoSee all my reviews

Wisely, the famous writer/adventurer, is tricked by his friend (played by Teddy Robin Kwan, the film's director)into helping him steal the dragon pearl. Sam Hui plays Wisely in this big budget HK movie, with production units filming some scenes by the Great Pyramids, and many scenes in Nepal. There are car chases and crashes, chases by horsemen and plenty of fights along the way. The Legend of Wisely is a live action comic book. A lot of effort went into making this movie, and it shows as Wisely goes from one hazard to another, a HK version of Indiana Jones. If you can, see the Universe DVD version of this movie, a widescreen transfer that highlights the panoramic views of the Himalayas in Nepal, where much of the on location action takes place.
