Not history
24 July 2001 | by PuppetmisterSee all my reviews

There is a whole string of Hong Kong "historical" epics which are just excuses for sexy shenanigans in period costume, including Sex and the Emperor, the Sex and Zen trilogy, the Chinese Torture Chamber stories, and this, the tamest of them all. Chingamy Yau is one of the most striking of HK starlets (and she never does full nudity, even if it means concealments of Austen Powers-style absurdity), but is never really believable as a woman of fearsome power. The relative high production values and Yau's sensational mating dance are all which set this apart.
