The Heroic Trio / Executioners

The Heroic Trio / Executioners

Cinema icons Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, and Michelle Yeoh join forces as a team of blade-throwing, shotgun-toting, kung fu–fighting heroines who battle evildoers in these gloriously unrestrained action joyrides from auteur Johnnie To and action choreographer Ching Siu-tung.

Special Features: 4K UHD release, new interviews with actor Anthony Wong and film critic Samm Deighan, trailers, and more.

Made at the height of the civil rights movement, Michael Roemer’s landmark of American cinema reveals the toll of systemic racism through its honest portrait of a southern Black railroad worker confronting the daily challenges of discrimination and economic precarity.
