In my opinion Blackhat was pretty underrated

Manhunter (1986) will likely be my choice here although Thief (1981) is just as phenomenal and captivating.

Any answer that's not Heat is just wrong.

Eagles90, I'm yet to see Heat (1995) (I know, one of those cases when it is a mild crime for a film fan) but I actually suspect it to be tad overrated. Because from what I've seen of Michael Mann's vast filmography, his other movies are very much underrated. Both Thief (1981) and Manhunter (1986) are utterly masterfull and yet criminally underseen movies. 

Will find out, hopefully, this very year, as Heat (1995) is on my "to watch" list for 2020. Along with L.A. Takedown (1989) for which it is a remake. I always try my best to see lesser-known originals, short film blueprints and such before I get to celebrated remakes and second versions.

Is it a sin that I like Last of the Mohicans and Collateral more?

Obviously I'm joking. I really like most of his stuff, especially The Last of the Mohicans and The Insider. But Heat is truly a masterpiece, definitely not overrated.

Paok, since you are not including his TV Movies, it should probably say which is your favorite Michael Mann Feature Film?
