Chasing after the soldiers in an effort to free her, Ossei is befriended by a fierce warrior named Naka. Written by Sujit R. Varma

They weren't Amazons!
14 September 2003 | by thornedbud_See all my reviews

First off the women they kept referring to as Amazons (most likely for the benefit of those who are unfamiliar with African culture) are not Amazons, Amazons come from near the Amazon river. My guess is they needed some name to call them that others watching would understand, but they weren't Amazons. Okay, anyway, good movie that had me for the first hour or so, then suddenly shifted and wasn't very good. The end was good, but cut out about 20-30 minutes and end it there, it would have been practically the same. Anyway, if you can get your hands on it, you may as well watch it, it provides a refreshing change from American movies (not that I don't like them).
