Chop socky masterpiece.
21 December 2003 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

First Let me say there is a real valid arguement that if you like serious good kung Fu movies you must own a region free DVD player. It's worth it. The celestrial picture re-issues alone make the money well spent. The heroic ones one of the films in this series that I was lucky enough to rent today.

The recent region 3 re-issue is remastered so well that my friends who watched it with me did not believe me that the film was from 1970.

Heroic ones is a must see for fans of high quality martial arts epics. The director was clearly trying to a eastern western feel with the opening credits,even the music. This brutal epic has massive battle scenes that are the size of big hollywood epic. Great half an hour battle with one man fighting hundreds. Good stuff.
