The plot of “Call of Heroes” centers around Koo, who plays Cao, son of a war General, who as an adult becomes a dangerous warlord. Cao is later accused of committing three murders, and his father vows he will take vengeance on the city if his son is sentenced to death.

The film was described as mirroring the style of several classic American Western films, and several of Akira Kurosawa’s samurai dramas. The upcoming release will have plenty of special features and bonus material which include a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the film, which will surely add to any martial arts fanatic’s collection.
