The Thai government hires a group of Chinese mercenaries to capture a powerful drug lord from the Golden Triangle. The mercenaries manage to capture the drug lord, but soon find themselves pursued by his forces, and the forces of a bitter Thai officer. The Chinese mercenaries are vastly outnumbered, and as their numbers begin to dwindle, their desperation pulls them into a corner as their enemies close in on them.

    "John Woo's first contemporary action film is an entertaining bloodbath ...."

    "The film may be over 30 years old but the carnage is still unflinching and mounted with viscous verve. From bloody squibs, burnings and beheadings, ‘Heroes Shed No Tears’ holds nothing back in its onslaught of impressively staged combat. ...one would be doing themselves an injustice in not checking out this early but highly entertaining action flick from the director."
