Movie Reviews

False advertising
Vox Nemesis | 09/02/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is *NOT* the 1977 movie 'Heroes'. It is a pathetic, butchered imitation thereof. Buying it will only encourage Big Media to think they can get away with selling cheap ripoffs instead of the real thing. Yes, this is entirely because of the removal of the song 'Carry On Wayward Son' from the ending; it really does make that much difference. What was a powerful climax has become a fizzle."
Release the proper version, with "Carry On Wayward Son"!

"I have great memories of watching this film on cable tv during my childhood. I was about to either rent the movie or even purchase it, just because of those memories. Now I see all these comments about the Kansas song "Carry On Wayward Son" not being used. This is a travesty. This is the strongest memory of have of this film, it left a very powerful impression on me. The fact that most of these reviews refer to this musical moment, must make a very strong statement to the Powers That Be involved in the DVD release. Put this film out, in its original form! I don't know if it's a licencing issue; if that is the case, I would hope that this situation could be rectified.

Don't get me wrong...I will certainly still have interest in seeing this film, but to me...without the Kansas song, it will never be the same. It's almost pointless."
