Henry Winkler has undeniable charm, but I wouldn't advise him to cancel his Fonz contract hastily.

The same script that regularly strains credulity well past the snapping point also provides a jolly enough vehicle for both Winkler and Ms. Field to break away from type and show the movie audience what they can do.

There is some sense of a much smaller, calmer movie interleaved with larger moments, although there is an iron spine of consistency and an accumulating power which is even more evident on a second viewing.

The big lie of "Heroes" is that you can make your pain disappear; the truth, I suspect, is that at best one can only suppress or channel one's pain in another direction.

June 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Capitalizing on other past hits, the feeble story also takes its cues from the romance and hitchhiking plot of It Happened One Night.

It tries to say some serious things about what the war did to us as a nation. But it's essentially a mishmash of unfulfilled ideas.

Audience Reviews for Heroes

My favourite crazy Vietnam veteran movie. It stars Henry "Fonzie" Winkler, it's nice to see him in a starring role for once.

Henry is fine in the lead but compared to the superior performances from Harrison Ford and especially Sally Field he is outclassed. Olivia Cole gives a lovely gentle performance in what could have been a small nothing role.
