The ''Heroic Trio'' is a 1993 Hong Kong action film directed by Johnny To, featuring an {{all star cast}} including MichelleYeoh, MaggieCheung and the late Anita Mui as the titular trio.

This film is an example of Hong Kong {{Wuxia}}, {{Wire Fu}}, and {{Heroic Bloodshed}}. The three main characters form a {{Power Trio}} of {{Action Girl}}s. The {{Rule of Cool}} helps to excuse some of the more over-the-top action sequences. The fight scenes are all highly choreographed [[UnnecessaryCombatRoll whirling mayhem]] filmed with sweeping tracking shots and plenty of ringing and swishing sound effects.
