Call of Heroes


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Benny Chan. 2016, 120 mins. Digital projection. In Cantonese with English subtitles. With Eddie Peng, Sean Lau, Louis Koo, Wu Jing. When a spoiled young man is accused of triple murder, his father—a powerful general who has grown into a vicious and depraved warlord—threatens to destroy the town if his son is convicted. It leaves villagers with an impossible choice: let a guilty man go free, or face the consequences of pursuing justice. Featuring action choreography by Sammo Hung, Variety has called the film “a glorious throwback to Shaw Brothers.”
