The Film:
A brilliant, fascinating, beautiful action fantasy.

An underworld demon wants to rule the world. He steals babies in order to choose one as a new emperor of China and turn the rest into subhuman creatures who serve him. Our three heroines get involved for different reasons, but eventually unite and fight together against the demon.

Enjoy the colorful characterizations, powerful music, superb photography, and perfect performances from all three leading actresses -- Michelle Yeoh, Anita Mui, and Maggie Cheung.

It's one of the most beautiful movies I've seen.

Michelle is just incredible. She is SOOOO beeeautiful... ...
