I think it's a Chinese TV series version of the story, probably whittled down quite a bit to fit on one DVD. Not sure of the quality, but probably a much lower budget than the movie.

Definately a remake. Kind of weird that the participants are not listed.

Definitely a TV show. Tai Seng did the same for Fists of Fury with Donnie Yen. They took 8 out for 40-something episodes and stuck them on 2 DVDs.

I'm guessing it's the same for this show.

The series came out not long after the film as released. I remember seeing a few episodes on my local late night international station. It's a mainland production I believe.

For what it's worth, the movie was based on an old novel. The TV series is probably just a different adaptation of the same source.
