Heroic Duo
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although this film received very little or no attention upon its release,even allowing for its minor shortcoming, I'd still rate it among the best movies I've ever seen. Take The Usual Suspects and The Sixth Sense, combine the two movies and throw in a little action and some seriously nerve-wracking, tense "heartless" villainy and you have Heroic Duo. One complaint: the weak title doesn't do this film justice. I still have to give it a ten-star rating. I know, you've never even heard of it, but compare it to the critically acclaimed Infernal Affairs (which I believe to have been highly overrated) and see what I mean.
