“The Heroic Ones (1970)” movie review.
Posted by MartialHorror May 3, 2012
One of my biggest problems with 1970's Kung Fu features from Hong Kong is that they all sort of blend together. I've actually reviewed plenty of these movies and I rarely can remember the titles, much less the movies themselves. To add to my confusion, I'm pretty sure Cheng Cheh directed 90% of the kung fu output during this time and he seems determined to make the same movie over and over again. This is why I liked “The Heroic Ones”, which also happens to be directed by the same guy. It is a very flawed movie, but I can't say I've ever seen anything quite like it.
