Before Hard Boiled, before The Killer – there was Heroes Shed No Tears.
Master Director John Woo (A Better Tomorrow, Face/ Off) travelled to Thailand to make this fast-paced action classic. A group of mercenaries are sent into the so-called 'Golden Triangle' to capture a drug baron, but nabbing him is the easy bit. He's not going to go quietly: with both by gangsters and the army on the tail, this wild bunch is going to need all the help it can get...
No one has ever filmed gunplay as well as Woo and this was the first film that showed what he could do with a semi-automatic. Filmed with the same mastery of action that made Hard Target and A Bullet in the Head such classics, 88 Films are proud to present this blu-ray premiere of a seminal action classic.
