This is a very good remake of the Original made back during the dominant run Shaw Brothers had in the Martials Film making genre. This movie was produced by Jackie Chan and I must say that this is a epic big production, with no shortage of action sequences. It got to be a little long on the drama to the build up but over all a good movie. The main weapon of choice in this film is the sabre and the choreagraph is well done.

Legendary Amazons is a remake of the Shaw Brothers film 14 Amazons.It is produced by Jackie Chan and directed by Frankie Chan. Frankie has done it all from acting,directing,writing and composing music for many films in Hong Kong.Legendary Amazons stars Richie Ren,Cecilia Cheung,Yukari Oshima,Fung Hak On who also did the action choreography.

This film focused less on the story and gave the original movie what it lacked,which was the action.About 70% of the movie is out in the field and Frankie Chan gives you your money's worth.The female soldiers have never looked so smooth handling swords, spears,wearing armor.No Donnie Yen,Jet Li,Wu Jing,Tony Jaa.That's okay they weren't needed in this one.

I thought this movie was really good in the respect of the womens' courage, bravery and discipline especially illustrated in their temple life worthy of the true Amazonian concept.

Surprisingly amazing and with tons of action. The romance between the two protagonists does not take away from the central campaign, and each amazon is special on her own.

Some archeologists believe that some of the Chinese Kung Fu systems were developed by women. Since their men were constantly being dragged off to fight in wars, they had to do something to protect their families from bandits. This film shows how such a family can rise to prominence in the old Song dynasty. I like the way there was 5 generations living together under one house. It shows how important family rally is to the Chinese and the history of China.

I read some pretty scathing reviews that this movie certainly doesn't deserve! One person brags of their extensive Asian action movie collection then calls the plot & action of this movie silly...SILLY ? Its based on facts you silly man!!! So how can you blame the brothers Chan for a silly true story? Apparently your knowledge of the Asian culture is limited to Kung Fu theater! This movie is visually stunning reminiscent of the 50's & 60's color epic's. The costumes & armor are like a peek into ancient china & contrary to some reviews they do a great job making four generations of characters endearing to the viewer, they even take the time to write a profile of many of the characters while their practicing with their weapon of choice. Yes there is use of wired stunts but again this helps reflect the supernatural aspects of Chinese story telling of their hero's. I would imagine a movie about Michael Jordan's athletic feats would need some wire work to help relay his incredible hang time! For many years Chinese action sequences had to be slowed down so the western eye could follow the action when shown in the U.S.A.. I am happy to be able to watch this in English although the dubbing process does take away a little from the acting, which isn't half bad. Over all I am very happy to add this historically true story to my sword & sorcery & historical film collection. I guess I really can't blame someone for thinking real life is silly...after all quite often the truth is stranger than fiction. Hollywood felt William Wallace being shot through the throat at the battle of Sterling was to unbelievable for the average viewer so they changed the truth & had him shot in the chest. "Braveheart" is not a good history lesson but it is a good movie.
