    Includes:The Heroic Ones (1970) The Delightful Forest (1972) Two Champions of Shaolin (1980) Heroes Shed No Tears (1986) The Heroic Ones Chang Cheh takes the director's chair for this martial arts adventure produced by the Shaw Brothers and set during the final years of the Tang Dynasty. The Chinese Emperor has requested that barbarian chieftain Li Ke-yung (Ku Feng) recapture the capitol city, which has recently fallen under the rule of a powerful rebel leader. In order to accomplish this formidable task, Ke-yung calls on his thirteen sons, each of whom are powerful fighters. Li Shih-szu (Ti Lung) and Li Tsun-hsiao (David Keung) in particular are more than up to the task, and may be cunning enough to successfully plan and execute this dangerous mission. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide The Delightful Forest No synopsis available. Two Champions of Shaolin Master kung-fu director Chang Cheh delivers this straight-ahead period martial arts saga. Tung Chien-chen (Lo Mang) was accepting into the hallowed Shaolin Temple even though he is Manchu, because his parents were both killed by the same. Shaolin has been locked in a fierce rivalry with the Wu Tang clan, which is allied with the Manchu born Ching emperor. When Tung is wounded in a skirmish with a group of Wu Tang's men, he is given safe haven from a master of knife throwing named Chin Tai-lei (Sun Chien) and his sister, Pei. Tung soon learns the finer points of their art and eventually, along with fellow kung-fu master Hu Wei-chen (Chiang Sheng), strikes revenge against the Wu Tang. Later, Tung proposes to Pei, but during the reception, the Wu Tang attack, kidnapping Tung and killing Pei and her brother. Will Tung get out of this ugly situation and find justice? ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide Heroes Shed No Tears A group of Chinese soldiers take on a vicious drug lord in Heroes Shed No Tears, an early film from famed director John Woo. The action takes place in Southeast Asia's Golden Triangle, notorious as one of the largest international centers of drug trafficking. As the film begins, an elite commando force is deep within the Triangle, launching an extremely bloody attack on the headquarters of drug kingpin General Samton. The raid ends with the successful capture of Samton -- but that is only the beginning of the their mission. The greater challenge lies in surviving long enough to bring their captive across the border of Thailand. During their journey, the group must struggle against Samton's henchmen and a brutal Vietnamese colonel they encounter along the way. While there is plenty of firepower in evidence, many of the action sequences lack the same level of elegance and style as Woo's later work. Instead, the film veers between moments of slapstick and horrific brutality of war in a fashion that would be more successful in his later Bullet in the Head. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide
