heat

January 17, 2004


I saw Heat last night staring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro



For starter's this is Michael Mann's best film. The Kinetic energy from beginning to end makes you forget that the movie is 3 hours long.

One of the styles of Mann is to present the cat and mouse chase game but at the same time incorporating a sub-social story line with the characters. I felt as though I knew the characters personally without having the sub story devirt from the main point.

Having an all star cast certainly helped carry the movie. The chemistry between De Niro and Pacino was priceless. Both in the beginning and weak character starts but as the film progressed, the chemistry was obvious.

The "scores" were well crafted and the gang in Heat made Oceans 11 look like amateurs.

The special effects were awesome without going over board on the cheese factor with explosions.

They're good friends. I know the first pic is from when De Niro was out in Dublin as a guest of Bono and then they went to a race at Naas together. And I know Bobby D has done been at AIDS benefits that Bono attended as well...

i love this movie... love it. my favorite movie of all time, and the most underrated movie of all time, in my opinion.

it's kinda tough to call a movie underr-rated that stars al pacino, robert deniro, val kilmer, jon voight, tom sizemore, ashley judd, amy brenneman & hank azaria... plus the first big movie for a young natalie portman... but for some reason this movie just slipped by with little mention.

Isn't 'Always Forever Now' by Passengers used in that film?

It's a great film.
