Some decent fight scenes in here and Michelle had a really cute smile when she was younger and chubbier. However, overall the movie is disjointed and the pathetic attempts at comedy really take the edge off the movie. Even amongst all the bad humour, badly arranged scenes and some bad acting on the part of some of the actors, Michelle Yeoh manages to come out unscathed. If you took out the bad humour, had Michelle Yeoh on her own against the Japanese (because frankly there is no need for the male lead), and a slightly better thought out plot, this could have been a real pearler. It's an OK movie without providing any real movie magic.

Michelle Yeoh is totally awesome & for fans of her movies you have to say she is QUEEN of the action movies,from her previous old action flicks, to her latest uptodates as she excells in the movie screen icon number one action warrior of decades & she's still the legendary number one action hero of the day. Watch her in this film & you will never want to put the remote controll down. She's just like the title....MAGNIFICENT!!!

I would have given this five stars if;
1. The dvd was firmly in place prior to posting because when i received it, it had moved around everywhere which had resulted in some minor scratches although when I played it, it was fine.
2. The dvd sleeve was in immacculate condition.

I know it sounds like I'm being a bit picky but I'm a collector and these little things matter to me!

Michelle Yeoh dons the Indiana Jones look for this action adventure set in Asia. As all 'Jones' movies, there is too much much talking, but you won't mind that here while its Ms Yeoh providing it. As the movie progresses, Yeoh is joined by Hong Kong super funny man, Richard Ng, and together they encounter Japanese Yakuza, Mongolian warriors and many many more enemies. the action and fights are plenty, with Wong Chen Lee (Drunken Master) as one of the main bad guys, and doesn't fail to impress, with both stars looking as great as ever. An highly enjoyable film... you'll like it!

Good standard kung fu flick. There's less wrong with this movie than most Kung Fu flicks. Michelle Yeoh is the pretty (but capable) heroine in the movie and the action scenes are good. No excessive wirefighting for those who don't like that stuff - most of it here is used in throwing people through the air after they've been kicked. Only weakness is that there is nothing exceptionally memorable or outstanding about the movie.
I really liked the extras which included a very detailed Michelle Yeoh Biography (not just a cinematography) and an interview; Michelle Yeohs first onscreen appearance in an ad with Jackie Chan and a series of Hong Kong legend trailers to help you decide what to buy next.
Summary: not a bad movie, not a great movie, action scenes are good and the movie is quite lighthearted throughout, worth watching - depends on the price if it's worth buying... you should definitely get it if you're a Michelle Yeoh fan if only for the extras.

In this film, which could be best described as an Eastern Indiana Jones with a feminist slant, Michelle Yeoh uses all of her action skills to battle against the oppressive Japanese. In a series of superb sequences, Yeoh and her aides take on a posse of villains who are intent on building a chemical weapons factory to further enhance their war effort. Although the budget is small in comparison to a Hollywood film, the look and feel of the film is splendidly realised. Get this instead of Charlie's Angels if you want REAL action.
