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 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.

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.

When you are a woman who needs a good woman pick me up movie go for this one or the earlier verison 14 Amazons both are excellent movies. This one is much more up to date with a cleaner picture. The women in this movie do not pull any punches and let the men in their world know that they are not to be messed with, that they can give as good and the male warriors in the family do. Many die but they die with honor, courage and bravery much like the female soldiers today. I as thrilled to watch this video and see even this Great grandmother kickin' butt and takin' names yep even she wasn't takin any crap LOL! Next time your significant other talks about "Chic Flicks" put this one on and watch him shut his mouth <VEG>.

For the most part the production values of the movie are okay with great props and some of the back drops are good, some are not so good, and in parts the green screen backgrounds aren't seemless. The story is pretty good, but gets muddled sometimes in know who is getting killed or not. There are so many female Yang fighters it's hard to keep track of who is who.

Most of the women are pretty and there is good action. If you watch the behind the scenes one can see many of the actresses get injured while filming and the fact they filmed in the desert during winter is amazing they didn't freeze to death. The crew are wearing down clothing while the actors only get their period clothing.

Based upon the above I give it a three out of five stars and I would buy it again for the $10.00 price I paid for it.
