The Legend of Wisely
The Legend of Wisely ( or ; released in the Philippines as Fighters of the Empire) is a 1987 Hong Kong fantasy adventure film directed by Teddy Robin based on Ni Kuang's novel series, Wisely Series, starring Samuel Hui as the titular protagonist. The film co-stars Ti Lung, Joey Wong and Robin himself.
Wisely, the famous writer/adventurer, is tricked by his friend (played by Teddy Robin, the film's director) into helping him steal the dragon pearl. Samuel Hui plays Wisely in this big budget Hong Kong 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 Hong Kong version of Indiana Jones.
