Chinese Film Forum UK presents Call of Heroes + Intro

Clearly bearing the influence of classics such as The Seven Samurai, this martial arts epic brings together some of Hong Kong’s top film talent, including director Benny Chan (The White Storm)action director Sammo Hung and a top notch cast that includes the ever popular Lois Koo and Sean Lau (the Overheard series) alongside rising star Eddie Peng.

Set during the early years of the Republic of China, a time of great turmoil due to incessant civil wars, Call of Heroes sees a small village militia, led by Lau, defending itself against the onslaught of an army led by a ruthless warlord who wants to free his sadistic son (Koo) who is charged with murder.
