Editorial Reviews

After the spectacular success of Enter the Dragon in 1973 many Western producers realized the potential of incorporating chinese kung fu with their adventure films.
Producer Stenio Fiorentini of Italy enlisted the cooperation of Hong Kongs largest film studio the Shaw Bros. and secured the services of their contract actor Yueh Hua to join a trio of actors that formed the Supermen.

Set back in an ancient time when Greek cultur ruled the world,the story deals with the conflict between a race of warrior women, the villagers whom they hold in bondage the three men who dedicate themselves to setting them free.
A Caucasian named Aro (Nick Jordon), Tago,a giant son of Africa (Marc Hannibal), and the Oriental,Chang (Yue Hua) take on a whole army of Amazons using their amazing agility, knowledge of martial arts and their ability to invent strange machines of war, the heroes proving themsleves to be a match for the warrior women.

Filmed entirely in Itay,Amazons and Supermen enjoyed great box office the world over.
The Shaw Bros. were so confident in it's result they set forth with another co-production with Hammer Studios of England called Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires in the same year.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZONS AND SUPERMEN November 25, 2008
Format:DVD
IT WAS GOOD. I LIKE THE FIRST PART WHICH FEATURED THE FIGHT BETWEEN TWO AMAZONS FOR THE TITLE "QUEEN".
I AM INTERESTED IN PURCHASING "WAR GODDESS". IT FEATURED A WRESTLING MATCH BETWEEN TWO AMAZONS IN A CAVE FOR THE TITLE "QUEEN". HOWEVER, I UNDERSTAND SOME VERSIONS ELIMINATED THIS PART. COULD YOU TELL ME IF I WAS TO ORDER "WAR GODDESS" IS THIS WRESTLING SCENE ELIMINATED ?

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to watch September 15, 2012
By Boxey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie at the drive in when I was about 5 years old. Later as an adult I tried hard to find it but could not remeber the title. In my childhood memories I remebered this movie as grand entertainment. After years of searching on the internet I finally found out the title and bought it on Amazon. This movie tries hard to blend action with comedy. It does not work. Also the film score seems like it should be from another movie and it is very distracting. Okay but be warned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feast for the eyes March 15, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story is typical of the genre. You know ,Amazons threaten village. The villagers fight back with the aid of three men who have almost super human abilities. One of the three seems to spend most of his time on a trampoline. The best part of the movie are the Amazons. They definitly look the part. They run around in bikinis. Wonderfull eye candy.

Rarescope: Amazons and Supermen

The film is good, but there is much to be said for the quality of the DVD, which is to say pretty poor. Because of the quality of the DVD, it pushes the rating down to 3 stars out of 5

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Horses, but not much else February 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this DVD (Amazons and Supermen) because I know one of the actresses.

There is a tenuous plot, but the acting is at best so-so and I could barely make it to the end. We won't go into the special effects, such as they were. Regrettably, the director/producer had aspersions to fame and the "ending" clearly pointed to a sequel rather than terminating the movie. I don't know if there is a sequel, but free might be too expensive a price to pay for a copy of the sequel.

The best I can say is that
-- I've seen far far worse movies
-- they used nice horses, and (for the most part) the actors/actresses could actually ride them.

I give it a two star for the horses and riders, if you aren't a horse person this would be a less than one star event.
