Legendary Amazons (杨门女将之军令如山) (2011)

The misfortunes of the military Yang family in the Sung dynasty and its glorious end has been the stuff of legend.

In this adaptation, it's a source of unintended comedy thanks to ridiculous casting, haphazard storytelling, perfunctory performances, and copious yet cartoonish CGI.

If you're into mediaeval versions of "Women keep getting lost; don't let them drive!" jokes, this is a film for you. Otherwise, stay away.
