Avoid this movie at all costs.

The movie jumps all over the place, and the storyline, well, there isn't one.

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.

This is a cool movie if you like "kung fu" movies. Lots of action with a decent story line. I especially liked the use of various weapons, it reminded me of the Final Fantasy games.
