More Heroics

Heroic Duo - Image courtesy of Tartan Video USABenny Chan’s HEROIC DUO hits Region 1 today. This Hong Kong thriller from 2003 stars Ekin Cheng and Leon Lai, with Francis Ng.

Kozo at said in part: “Rare action and fun performances makes Heroic Duo an entertaining film, but the ridiculous story and sometimes embarrassing script do their best to ruin things. This is a decent commercial exercise with some fun star turns, but not much else. ”

The DVD is said to include Cantonese DD 5.1 and DTS audio tracks with English and Spanish subtitles. Extra features include a “making of” featurette and interviews with the filmmakers.

Note the very subtle John Woo references on the cover. Talk about setting yourself up for disastrous comparisons…
