Critic Reviews for Call of Heroes

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

  • Sergio Leone's specter looms large over Call of Heroes, a film oozing nihilist violence on par with the bloodiest scenes in any of those spaghetti Westerns that have long informed Hong Kong's wuxia cinema.

    Aug 17, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Call of Heroes is a thoroughly modern and satisfyingly self-aware action film; both classic, old fashioned, and authentically exciting.

    Jun 7, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This is real old school action drama, the kind of Hong Kong movie that wears its heart on its sleeve and tends to wave it around with utterly sincere speeches about justice and duty.

  • Chan has delivered a film that is consistently entertaining and will leave Western audiences, at least, looking forward to seeing what he does next.

    Jan 5, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Benny Chan's best film in years - a Chinese wuxia epic with obvious echoes to classic spaghetti Western films and Akira Kurosawa's samurai dramas like Seven Samurai and Yojimbo.

    Aug 18, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • When so many period Chinese blockbusters are all about fancy -- and more often than not, unconvincing -- special effects, it is refreshing to watch one that uses good, old-fashioned action stunts.
