The Heroic Ones, also known as 十三太保, Shi San Tai Bao and Les 13 Fils du Dragon d'Or is a 1970 Hong Kong Shaw Brothers Studio martial arts film directed by Chang Cheh. It was originally released on 14 August 1970 in Hong Kong and was one of the top grossing Hong Kong films between the years of 1970 and 1972.
(Synopsis): It’s literally brother against brother as Chiang and Lung display their remarkable martial arts prowess--battling insiders and outsiders in a duel to the death for the fate of China. No screen team was more triumphant in the "Golden Age" of kung-fu cinema than the "iron triangle" of director Chang Cheh and his proteges David Chiang and Ti Lung. This is their quintessential historical epic, set during the waning years of the Tang Dynasty.
