Call of Heroes Directed by Benny Chan

What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Call of Heroes

    After a string of critical failures, Benny Chan - once considered the great hope of Hong Kong action - appears creatively rejuvenated with 2016's stellar "Call of Heroes." Chan combines a "Seven Samurai"-esque storyline of righteous villagers fighting an immoral army with a Spaghetti Western soundtrack and good old-fashioned Shaw Brothers-style martial arts. The result is, simply put, a damn good time at the movies.
