An epic tale of crime and obsession and two men on opposite sides of the law.

When Al Pacino and Robert De Niro square off, Heat sizzles. Written and Directed by Michael Mann, Heat includes dazzling set pieces and a bank heist that USA Today's Mike Clark calls "the greatest action scene of recent times". It also offers "the most impressive collection of actors in one movie this year" (Newsweek). Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore and Ashley Judd are among the memorable supporting players in this tale of a brilliant LA cop (Pacino) following the trail from a deadly armed robbery to a crew headed by an equally brilliant master thief (De Niro).

Heat goes way beyond the expectations of the cops-and-criminals genre - and into the realm of movie masterpieces.

This film given adequate time will probably fit into the category of a CLASSIC. It contains all the right ingredients including a line up of great actors portraying fascinating characters, truly believable storyline and superb directing. The story itself revolves around the two central characters namely the cop, Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) and the criminal wizard, Neil McCauley (Robert DeNiro). While we follow Hanna's personal life, the story shows how it is about more than just a cop in pursuit of a criminal. Hanna's marriage is flagging, and his stepdaughter is under tremendous depression, and his wife proclaims he lives his life more among the "remnants of dead people." A man of two other futile marriages; Hanna's story is that of the strain of trying to fulfil both his professional and personal lives, whereby every time, the professional side wins out. With Neil McCauley's story, it follows a mastermind criminal who is forever setting up the next heist whether it is large or small. His story involves his relationships with the other men in his crew, and his relationship with Eady, his girlfriend who is unaware of his criminal profession.

The tensions build as the director Michael Mann, shows the two contrasting strategies of each man as their paths and stories draw closer together in a cat and mouse pursuit. When the two characters eventually come face to face in a coffee shop each trying to outwit the other, the cop trying to convince the villain that he will be caught and the criminal mind believing he is the smarter of the two. The tension level goes up another scale.

The supporting cast is full of big names, and it is so pleasing to see everyone come together to make the characters reveal their own prestigious place in the film.
Val Kilmer is a bad tempered brutal personality and plays Neil McCauleys right hand man. Tom Sizemore, as the ruthless Michael Cheritto, and Jon Voight, as a gruff Nate the fence and information collator, all of which are entirely appropriate and an intricate part of the crew. Likewise, flawlessly cast are Justine Hanna (Diane Venora) and Natalie Portman, as Justine's daughter Lauren. As Venora is strong opposite Pacino, so Eady (Amy Brenneman) is an identical strongly cast partner for DeNiro.

Michael Mann's powerful direction of the movie keeps the film moving while providing an incredible formula of action and drama. He moves from scene to scene quickly and fluently and each scene leaves its own, unique impression on the tension of the audience. The director had a difficult job in staging what can only be described as a shoot-out after a bank robbery in the streets of L.A, the like of which has not been seen before. The action levels never become more important than the drama balance, not surprisingly his more realistic sense of style is what makes this scene so truly believable.

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino being directed by Michale Mann.
We should expect nothing but a Materpiece and for once that is exactly what is delivered.
A Mind Blowing take on the Cops and Robbers genre, refreshing it and keeping it the same all in one audacious go.
The Cop and Robbers are presented as Supertars with layers of Emotion and Codes of Conduct on either side.
The Story is Tightly Plotted, Expertly Directed and the film looks Gorgeous.
The 2 Action Set Pieces the one at the beginning and the one in the middle are Authentic, Exciting and Terrifying at the same time.
To be honest I have still not seen a better shoot out in a movie since.
An now we come onto the acting.
Both De Niro and Pacino are Excellent, but De Niro's no nonsense Career criminal just edges it.
Val Kilmer is a joy to watch in one of his best roles and Jon Voight is a revaklation in a small but significant role.
The rest of the cast is maded up with spot on performances from Danny Trejo, Dainnae Venora, Amy Brennan, Tom Sizemore and Natalie Portman.
Other Movies defo worth watching from the same director include, Collatral, Miami Vice, Public Enemies, The Insider and Last of the Mohicans

An absolute bona fide masterpiece! Brilliantly acted by pacino and de niro not to mention the supporting cast! Beautifully shot by michael mann! And as everyone knows by now the best shoot out ever committed to celluloid! A must own by any movie fan! And no doubt will look absolutely stunning on blu-ray!! A true 5 star movie if ever there was one!!!

I have this on dvd and only purchased on blu ray because I am a huge fan of Pacino and De Niro. The picture is only a small step up and the sound is not what you would call hd quality, but i give it four stars because the movie is a classic

I am rather dissapointed by this bluray.. Heat is one of my favourite movies- a classic movie now- and it deserved a much better treatment..the sound was very good..impressive..but the picture was not as half good as i expected...yes it is 15 years old film..but Braveheart was too and it had amazing picture..but Heat has not impressed me at all with the picture it had..extras too are dissapointing..nothing fancy..the didnt treat this movie like they should have..i am hoping for a much better future release...
