Legendary Amazons杨门女将之军令如山(2011) ~ Chinese Movies&TV


Today, I’d like to introduce a Chinese film, Legendary Amazons (杨门女将之军令如山yángménnǚjiāng zhī jūnlìng rú shān)(2011).It is based on the stories of the Yang Clan Generals (杨氏将军Yáng shì jiāngjūn). The film is directed by Frankie Chan and stars Richie Jen, Cecilia Cheung, Cheng Pei-pei and Liu Xiaoqing. The film is based on the same source material as the 1972 Hong Kong film The 14 Amazons.


The film is set in early 11th century China during the reign of Emperor Renzong of the Song Dynasty (宋朝Sòngcháo). The emperor neglects state affairs and indulges in personal pleasures, while the government sinks into corruption and war continues to rage on at the borders of the Song Dynasty. The Song Dynasty is being invaded by the armies of the rival state of Western Xia (西夏Xī Xià).

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.
