Call of Heroes (2016)

Phenomenal! This is an amazing wuxia film! I don’t have a single complaint about this film everything from the acting to the fight scenes was spectacular.  A really enjoyable story! It is also the second film I’ve seen this month where one of the main characters uses a whip as a weapon of choice.

This film is going to go down as a modern classic.  It had all the best hallmarks of a wuxia films and none of the baggage.  The plot was straight forward, the action is amazing, and the acting spot on. It received 100% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and 61% Audience score. Seriously worth watching, an amazing adventure!
