Main Plot Points:
- After a country’s prince is slain, his brother is forced to take his place as leader of the army.
- With a new bride – Queen Ahno – promised from a rival land, the king takes up the task of uniting the empire.
- When the queen’s father begins to question the new king’s motives, she is forced to choose sides as war threatens their countries.
- With no peace in sight, the king’s life is threatened, and Queen Ahno is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect both her husband and her new country.
What We Thought:
- Warrior Princess (AKA Queen Ahno) is Mongolia’s highest-grossing film to date.
- I don’t understand how, I found this film to be mostly kind of boring and non-entertaining
- The parts that should have been dramatic and impactful fell short.
- The fight/battle scenes were kind of poorly done, and were not very exciting.
- For a people with such an interesting and intense past, I don’t understand how films about that past can be so run-of-the-mill. This is the second Mongolian film I have seen that I was disappointed by.
- The film quality was good.
- The acting was a mix of good, and not so good.
- I think the film could also have used a little more in the way of narrative.
- I feel like unless someone goes into this film already knowing the specifics of the situation depicted, there is a lot left to be desired.
- The costumes, props, and locations were great. Everything looked really good.
- This is another of those average films that I wouldn’t really recommend to anyone, but wouldn’t go out of my way to steer people away from either.
Notable Cast & Crew:
- None, as far as I know.
