Strong Female Lead Movie

Story of two young ladies who want to get back their family blade that their father, a Chief Commander, used while valiantly fighting against the Liao during war. The Liao took the blade as a trophy winning against the brave Chief Commander.

The story entirety revolved within 2 days; from the time the blade was taken back by the 2 sisters then fighting the Liao soldiers who went after them.

The fight choreographies were good and theres a lot of them. Set scenes were done convincingly. Costumes matches the story told. There was just a quirky scene wherein the fight was turned into a staged production complete with spotlight so it threw me off. A serious story that has this made me scratch my head.
No beautiful costumes, emperor's, or palace shown in this story so don't expect them.
Overall, I can recommend it for viewing if you are into period action movies that has a good plot a strong female lead.
