Review: Benny Chan's Call of Heroes (2016)

6 September 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Released recently in UK Cinema's, Call of Heroes (2016), proves to be one of the best recent Hong Kong action films released in the past few years, focusing more on good acting, excellent action sequences and as little CGI as possible. The majority of the film is set in a small town called Pucheng, which is policed by the town sheriff Yeung Hak-nan (Lau Ching Wan). Before we come to Pucheng we are informed that the Warlord Cao Ying’s crazed son, Cao Shaolun (Louis Koo) has been murdering villagers throughout the country causing Teacher Bai Ling and the children to flee to Pucheng. During this time we are introduced to Eddie Peng’s character Ma Fung, a drunken wanderer who ends up assisting Bai Ling and...

Film Review: ‘Call of Heroes’

19 August 2016 6:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A dauntless sheriff and a roving bladesman defend a city under siege in “Call of Heroes,” a solid, muscular action period film with an apt if overstated political allegory. Hong Kong action blockbuster director Benny Chan (“The White Storm”) gamely riffs on Westerns and samurai films, while Sammo Hung’s sinewy action choreography is a glorious throwback to the rustic vigor of Shaw Brothers films of the ’80s.Overseas buyers from multiple territories have responded favorably to “Call,” but its China opening hasn’t quite taken off. If anything, the lukewarm response confirms that mainland audiences either prefer contemporary subjects or like their period films larded with fantasy and visual effects. The film can be viewed as a 3D conversion in China.

The setting is China’s Warlord Era (1916-1928), when military strongmen commanding armies of thugs ran rampant in the north. Early on, warlord Cao Ying seizes Stone City, »

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »
