Well...they deserve to be alone if they're gonna make junk like this.
1 February 2004 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

Within the first five minutes, I was laughing so hard that my eyes were filling with tears. Of course, the problem is that "Heroes Stand Alone" isn't meant to be a comedy.

An American spy plane crashes in the jungles of San Pedro, a fictional Central American country. The US government sends in a team to retrieve the black box. Meanwhile, some Russian and Cuban guerillas are attempting to reach the crash site first. Can't you just feel the tension?!!

The sole special effect which the makers of this film could afford was pyrotechnics. That would be fine if there were such things as a plot or actual actors. Alas, those are nowhere to be found so the attempt is made to distract you with the occasional fireball. A plane crash? We see a series of fire spouts shooting up from the ground. A shoulder-launched missile? We're entertained with a few sparks and a puff of smoke which doesn't even cause minor injury to anyone within five feet of it. A dead body? Yup...they set it on fire!

Anything executive produced by Roger Corman usually has perilously low standards. This is no different. Anyone who couldn't make the cut to even be in the background of a McDonald's commercial has been signed up to have speaking roles in this little flick. They all spend too much time talking about nothing and a person can only take so much shooting blanks or blowing things up. The only thing heroic about this movie is you if you can sit through it all. 1/10
