Storyline

The movie is set in chaotic 1920's China, when warlords fought each other for power while Sun Yat-Sen's underground movement tried to establish a democratic republic. The movie tells the story of three young women and two young men who are thrown together. One young woman grabs a box of jewels during the looting when one warlord takes Peking. A deserting soldier joins her, but the jewels end up at the Peking Opera. Here we meet the daughter of the head of the troupe, who dreams of being an actress. But even female roles are played by men in the opera. Soon, the daughter of the currently ruling warlord and a male agent of the democratic underground are involved. Written by Reid Gagle

This Movie is Awesome
22 August 2000 | by (Canton, NY) – See all my reviews

You'd never see a movie like this in Hollywood. A pack of strong, intelligent women dominating every scene, of course not. The characters are interesting and distinct. Each action scene is fun and engaging. This film has everything you could ever want in a film, comedy, violence and a touch of romance. Not to mention the excellent lead actress Brigitte Lin who's performance is memorable.
