A Hero Never Dies (Chinese: 真心英雄; pinyin: Zhen xin ying xiong; Cantonese Yale: Chan sam ying hung; literal title: True Heart Hero) [1] is a 1998 Hong Kong action crime drama, and the first Milkyway Image film to be directed by Johnnie To.

Starring Leon Lai and Lau Ching-wan, A Hero Never Dies is a heroic bloodshed tale centering on the friendship and rivalry of two Triads in the midst of a gang war. The film has often been compared to the 1986 Hong Kong film A Better Tomorrow as both men wind up being betrayed by their bosses.[2]
