YesAsia Editorial Description

Hong Kong action queen Michelle Yeoh teamed up with her Royal Warriors director David Chung again in the period action adventure Magnificent Warriors. Co-starring Richard Ng, Lowell Lo, and Chindy Lau as comic sidekicks, plus leading man Derek Yee who was already changing from a movie star to a director, the 1987 D&B Films production features nonstop action scenes and incredible stunts choreographed by Stephen Tung, Stanley Tong, and Blackie Ko. Yeoh got so badly injured during the shoot that she had to take a break from action films and even contemplated retiring from her budding cinematic career.

The year is 1938. In a Bhutan town close to Tibet, the Japanese army is secretly building a military factory to produce poisonous gas. The town's timid ruler Youda (Lowell Lo) asks the Chinese government for help, and they send in their top spy "001" (Derek Yee) to investigate the case and rescue Youda, while also enlisting the help of China's first female pilot Ming (Michelle Yeoh) to fly them to safety. But the ragtag group of warriors ends up staying behind to stop the Japanese occupation forces in an explosive, exciting showdown!

Professional Review of "Magnificent Warriors (DVD) (Joy Sales Version) (Hong Kong Version)"

January 6, 2006

This professional review refers to Magnificent Warriors
Re-writing Chinese/Tibetan relations via Saturday afternoon Republic serial conventions, this cliffhanger-packed, easy on the eyes, programmer casts the Imperial Japanese army as stand-ins for the People's Liberation Army and a mythical Nepalese kingdom for Tibet. Michelle Yeoh, about twenty years old and taking obvious glee in her physical prowess, plays a biplaner bounty hunter who is hired to fly into the mythical mountain country and meet up with top Chinese Resistance fighter, Skyhawk (played by ex-Shaw Brothers sharpie, Derek Yee, who went on to direct C'est la Vie, Mon Cheri; Viva Erotica; and Full Throttle). A whip and gun session with some ignoramus banditos, and an impressive-looking dogfight with a Japanese pilot sporting a Hitler-stache are first up on her "To Do" List.

Once inside the mountain kingdom she makes for the capital city, a crazy quilt of one and two story mud huts that are perfect for bouncing overly committed Japanese soldiers off of, and she hooks up with Yee. "I'm here to mash your male chauvinism," she tells him in that icy, commanding tone she's mastered. Richard Ng "swindles, and robs, and creeps" his way into the plot as a self-serving conman, and the ever-irritating Lowell Lo plays the natives' spiritual leader, Youda (Yogurt + Yoda = Youda?). Before the movie's over, Michelle's mashed their male chauvinism as well.

Lo's Buddhist vows are taken to the whiniest extremes, abstinence becoming a knee-quaking fear of women, non-violence becoming a form of spinelessness, and he's facing a moral dilemma as he coerces his people to go along with whatever the occupying Japanese army wants, including using them as quality control testers for the nerve gas they're manufacturing.

Everyone wears khaki in this ode to Raiders of the Lost Ark military chic. Director David Chung is an accomplished cinematographer (Dangerous Encounter - First Kind, Painted Faces) and he brings his eye to the panoramic vistas with Michelle Yeoh framed in the foreground beating down Japanese ninjas with a hunk o'rope. Three stunt coordinators were brought in for the final action-packed half-hour as the capital city comes under siege and Youda, a man of supposedly spiritual leanings, grabs a water-cooled .50 caliber machine gun to mow down the Japanese invaders. All bow down to the needs of the filmic narrative.
