To celebrate Cine Asia’s grand return with CALL OF HEROES – Available from Monday 2nd January 2017 on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD, we have a Blu-Ray copy to give away courtesy of Cine Asia.


Blistering, epic-scale action from director Benny Chan (NEW POLICE STORY, SHAOLIN), with action director Sammo Hung (IP MAN, DETECTIVE DEE: MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME).

Call of Heroes thrills throughout in its tale of skilled martial artists, who take a stand to protect their village against a ruthless army. In 1914, after the collapse of China’s Qing dynasty, Yang Kenan (Sean Lau Mad Detective) is appointed as guardian to defend the rural village of Pucheng. After Yang arrests the son of a sadistic warlord, Cao Shaolun (Louis Koo Flash Point), the warlord’s army threatens to bring death and destruction. As the odds for peace lessen and the pressure mounts for Yang to release the murderous captive, a stirring tale of heroic resistance unfolds.

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. I love the Normandy beach landing scene of Saving Private Ryan… intense and immense, throws you into the thick of the action!

  2. In Enter the Dragon when Bruce Lee fights Kien Shih at the end, especially the mirror part. Brilliant action sequence.

  3. The Alamo, the last fight, was an amazing film with some great scenes

  4. The Alamo is my favourite must have seen it 100 times it personifies Americas obsession with its view of history

  5. Zulu historical fact from start to finish, the action was wonderful and to see how many victoiar cross for bravery

  6. Butch & Sundance on the bicycle

  7. I enjoyed the Dam Busters, my favourite part of it was when they bombed the dams, an amazing film, full of facts

  8. The beach landing in Saving Private Ryan, it’s all action and seems to be historically accurate.

  9. The chariot race in Ben-Hur demonstrates that if you think that chases, gunfights, and fistfights are cool, try it with horses. Because this film did, without CGI or superimposing, for a nearly 10 minute brilliant race that remains one of the greatest action sequences of all time.

  10. The landings on Normandy beach in Saving Private Ryan

  11. Definitely the landings on Normandy beach is saving private Ryan. Such an amazing film.

  12. The beach landing scene in Saving Private Ryan is one of the best opening scenes in movie history – thrilling, bloody and intense. A great film.

  13. Saving Private Ryan was very good and captured, I’m sure, a bit of the horror of that time.

  14. The matrix on the roof where he manages to bend nearly all the way to the floor to avoid bullets from mr.smithi stuck in my mind because ihad never seen such cgi before

  15. Pretty much any scene in the matrix. one of my favourite films!!

  16. Has to The Princess Bride – all of it!

  17. Alamo. Bringing America to life, realistic portrail. Meaningful movie, action packed viewing

  18. The opening battle scene in Gladiator between the Romans and the Germanic tribes- very satisfying and beautifully shot against the bleak forest backdrop

  19. All the scenes in Forrest Gump, one that stuck is Vietnam, I was only 12 when I first saw that, and I got a tiny tiny glimsp of war horrors

  20. The D-Day landing scene in Saving Private Ryan is great

  21. A BRIDGE TOO FAR great film all the way through especially when they reject the German proposal for surrender as only the British can

  22. various scenes in WarHorse where Joey was at the forefront of the battles

  23. saving private ryan, the beach scene. so emotional

  24. The bombing of the hard water factory in Heroes of Telemark

  28. The movie- The battle of Britain, lots of action through out, some great fighting scenes in the sky, tense moments as it cuts to the Operations room on the 15th September… “is everything up?” “the lot sir”, ” Reserves?” “none” – “thats just what I’ve told the prime Minister (churchill) as they walk into the room with Churchill following everything as it happened on the flight board below. The another favourite bit and the words… “they are late today”…and the film cuts to scenes in france that show Hitlers invasion force discarding their life jackets in a heap after the expected invasion was called off as a result of the Luftwaffe failing to gain air superiority- a must for the invasion to have a chance of success… cue-Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.

  29. The end fight in Gladiator with Russell Crowe.

  30. The chariot race in Ben Hur – just because!

  31. ‘Glory’ the final scene when the soldiers storm the fort…most memorable for the final moments when commanding officer – Matthew Broderick’s character Col. Robert Gould Shaw & Denzel Washington’s lowly Private Trip die and both end up in the pit together – no longer seperated by colour or rank but united in duty and honour.

  32. Saving Private Ryan – Normandy Beach Landing. Scared the hell out of me, and made me realise how little those who signed up, knew what they were in for.

  33. The final scene in “Life of Brian”.Always look on the bright side of life.

  34. I THINK the Normandy beach landing scene of Saving Private RyaN WAS BRILLIANT, SO MUCH ACTION and suspense

  35. I would have to say Saving Private Ryan, when the troops land at Normandy Beach.

  36. The top floor scenes in die hard

  37. Saving Private Ryan, so many descriptive scenes, but none as moving as the landings on the beach

  38. I love this genre of film (both my Grandparents were in the army during WW2 – in fact my Grandpa was a Captain which is how he met my Gran), it really opens your eyes to events that happened before our time. One of my favourite historic scenes has to be the beach landings in Saving Private Ryan. To see, feel and experience in a small way what it must have been like for those boys and men sends shivers down my spine. I don’t think a lot of people realise what it was really like for them that day. The soldier picking up his severed arm something I won’t forget.
