If the episode of ten assassins I found is " Ci Ma ", then, it should be related to the Shaws' Blood brothers and the series Ma' s assassination with David Chiang, since both of them share the same title with this episode.
Also, thank you very much for the cast of Three kingdoms. I didn't notice Damian Lau, but Poon Chi Man was very young, there !
reinafu i'm pretty sure that damian lau's part is a minor one--this may even have been his earliest role! i'd have to re-visit his fanpage to be sure, but yeah, he would've been very young back then.
and yes, the RTV version of Ci Ma is most likely the same storyline as the Shaw movie--i vaguely remember they're the same era (qing dynasty) and that there was a lot of fighting and killing involved. wasn't ti lung in it, too?

Yes, the Shaws' movie tells the story of two friends (David Chiang and Chen Kuan Tai) who rob bandits, if I'm not mistaken. They meet Ti Lung, who they try to rob, but they finally become friends. Then, they become more and more famous for bullying the other clans of bandits and Ti Lung falls for Chen Kuan tai's wife (Ching Li). Finally, he becomes an officer and ask his friends to come with him, but his love for Ching Li becomes stronger and he finally orders the murder of Chen Kuan Tai. When David Chiang discovers that, he seeks revenge for hsi friend and finally kills Ti Lung, before being executed for this murder.
I guess that the first scene of the episode of Ten assassins I found shows the murder of " Ti Lung's " character and that the rest of the episode is a flashback explaining the reasons of the murder...
reinafu: Hello ! Everything is alright for me, so far. What about you all ?

texture: Hi all, a_tumiwa has pointed out on spcnet that the domain is expiring. There are a lot of resources there, which could be lost. What do you think about copying some of its content here? I am mainly thinking about the wuxia translations
