It looks like a pretty generic Chinese battle movie. It's pretty wierd that Russian pop singer Vitas is in this flick...

I think the film would be better with him, especially if they already have some white Russian pop star in this...

Shaw Bros. produced a version of the story in 1964 entitled, LADY GENERAL HUA-MULAN, and it starred Ivy Ling Po in the title role. It had its epic scenes, but they were interspersed with lots of singing. It was what's called "Huangmei Opera," an operetta style of production mixing spoken dialogue with copious amounts of singing. I liked it a helluva lot better than the Disney version.

Anyone catch the credits at the end? Jaycee Chan, Jackie's son, is in the cast.
