Handsome young actor Eddie Peng (Rise of the Legend) is quickly and noisily taking the world by storm, and we are here for it. His latest adventure in Well Go USA’s Call of Heroes proves that he can definitely hold his own against some of the industry’s best. Led by the brilliant and award winning director Benny Chan, Call of Heroes takes it back to the time of OG (original gangsta) films and heart-pounding fight sequences. It’s definitely a film that awakens old school nostalgia.
Although still young, Eddie Peng is a perfect fit. Even though he is surrounded by a host of seasoned castmates, he easily found his own rank as a hero among them.
It can be difficult to authentically merge historical tales with modern styles, but under Benny Chan, anything is possible. Call of Heroes is beautifully shot around the fall of the Qing dynasty. It’s funny, exhilarating and emotional. The action and stunt scenes leave nothing to be desired, as expected from Sammo Hung, one who has achieved legendary status himself. Even typically stereotyped female roles are impressively turned upside down. Although still young, Eddie Peng is a perfect fit. Even though he is surrounded by a host of seasoned castmates, he easily found his own rank as a hero among them.
Peng plays a disenchanted wanderer who winds up in the middle of a deadly game of life and death. The players are the son of a ruthless war general sweeping across the land and a righteous band of lawmen from a small town opposing him. Louis Koo (Drug War) practically drips crazy as the psychopathic warlord that violently infiltrates the town. He faces Sean Lau (Mad Detective), the leader of the town’s protectors, and his judge and jury. When the two clash, it’s a fantastic display of wits, righteousness and brutal strength. Peng has to choose a side when a face from his past proves to be even more dangerous than the heartless catalyst. Wu Jing (Kill Zone 2) is a formidable opponent that forces Peng to decide if he will continue to wander or heed the call to be a hero.
