A little behind the rest of the pack, Frankie Chan’s remake (this version is based on the 1972 martial arts classic ‘The 14 Amazons’) Legendary Amazons is finally set to debut in America, via Well Go USA.
Cecilia Cheung (Shaolin Soccer), Cheng Pei-Pei (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) and Liu Ziaoqing (Plastic Flowers) star as widowed wives who must lead the other widows into battle when the last of a long line of Song generals are killed. Richie Ren (Life Without Principle, Accident) also stars as Yang Zongbao, the last of the Song generals to fall. Bonus materials include a behind-the-scenes featurette and a new, optional (the only option for that in our book, is the OFF position) English dub.
Legendary Amazons debuts on U.S Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital....October 16th.
Synopsis: Yang Zongbao is the last man standing in the Yang clan, a family of generals who have dedicated their lives to defending the Song Dynasty from foreign invaders. He apparently dies in battle tragically when the treacherous Imperial Tutor Pan refuses to send reinforcements to aid him. Yang Zongbao’s widowed wife Mu Guiying leads the other widows of the Yang clan into battle to continue the legacy of their husbands.
