I don't remember the other actors but anyway .. I saw the two TV series awhile back and fell in love with the story. I finally gave the movie a go last night and I end up liking it ... well, mainly for Vic. He's my Legolas lol I also like seeing a lot of the familiar p'ek as well .. it was really unexpected since I'm 2 years late into this movie :)

I love series and movies that adapt the Yang Clan. Vic was my fave in this movie! I know Legendary Amazons came before this, but if watched after this ... even though the story is slightly different.. still gave a good feel. Legendary Amazon has a bit of a cheesey cinematic though. I still liked it.

Hehe :coverlaf: Vic's character is your ideal warrior/general then? *Remember how we talked about king vs general lol.

I have not watched this but knew about it. I know almost all of the actors playing the 7 sons.

I have always liked the song played in the mv. It is called Huang Hun.

I didn't see that one yet .. but I saw a bit here and there. Didn't find Cecilia Cheung as a convincing mother of some 18 years old something ... I have two TV favorites .. one is this one:

Omggg my favorite! I never really saw Yelu as a bad person. Afterall he is doing for what his nation what the Yang's do for theirs. I really pitied Peter's character, he was separated and when finally reunited it was short lived. Gotta love Yang Ba mei!

LOL, I had to come log in just so I can post about this film. 555
 
The film had a great cast!  From Ekin to Raymond to Li Chen to VIC. *coughcough* Wu Chun had so much screen time :( sighhh..
 
Vic had such little screentime but his scenes were the most memorable for me.  Oh I love men w/bow&arrows.  He made a great archer.  :D :D :D  Plus, he looked really great in here.  Such a mature looking ZaiZai.  *sniffsniff*  I would love to see him in a role like this again except where he'll get more screen time/exposure.  Goodness, his death scene was so heartwrenching because I didn't expect for him to go that fast!!  Cheater!!!!
 
I enjoyed the film but it was a bit too fastpaced since it was a film.  It was still enjoyable.
 
 
As for Legendary Amazon.  Say what??? Cecilia was supposed to be the mother?? How come I don't remember this?  555, even though I watched the film in the past.  Hmmm.
 
 
Yang Warriors 2006.. will always be a favorite of mines.  That version had a superb cast as well!  Yuan Hong as Yeluxia.. remarkable!  He really shined in there.  I really loved Peter's story in here too.  His character was so pitiable.  *sniffsniff*  Sighhh, I loved his relationship with Eddie :3 :3 :3 Oh Si-lang & Qi-lang~~~ I miss 4th & 7th brother~~~
 
Ok, enough spazzing. Back to my  hiatus for this semester :)

Yuan Hong was just ... oozing with sexiness. He was a good baddy -- and a hereo in our loving eyes lol I love his character in here as well .. remind me of Thai p'ek -- always doing things to make his lady happy even though he's hurting silently alone.  I was envious of Guan Hong because of the two generals. I would prefer Yeluxie more though lol
 
Julie, she plays a mother in there ... there's a Thai dub version of the movie on Youtube.

I read the story ... Cecilia is the wife of Wu Chun and the princess's son, Zongbao.  The 18 something years old is the grandson of Wu Chun and the Princess who is Cecilia Cheung's son lol
 
Zoe, I love generals lol -- They're adventurous and courageous!
