It was certainly a splendid production of Shaw Brothers. Nearly half of Shaws' cast was in the movie, both young and old! The story disclosed unity, courage, loyalty and determination of Yang household to defeat the enemy till the end. The scenes of Watergate & Human Bridge were fantastic!
Lily Ho portrayed as a cute, naive young amazon, and Ivy acted well in leading the troop.Overall, it's a remarkable Shaws' epic!!!

I can't believe Ivy Ling Po did not win an award for this movie. Her portrayal of Mu Kwei-ying is definitive.

The highlight of this movie was when the lady warriors braced themselves to make a human bridge, it was really awesome!
