Our Daily Stream: Michael Mann - Heat. Zum Geburtstag des Regisseurs! - Es gibt diese eine Szene im Zentrum von Heat, die das Subjekt von Michael Manns Action Thriller ist. Hier haben wir den Polizisten Hanna (Al Pacino), der einen der meistgesuchten Diebe, McCauley (Robert De Niro), jagt. McCauley ist ungeheuer raffiniert und achtsam - fast unmöglich zu fangen. Seit Tagen ist Hanna bereits hinter ihm her, bis dahin erfolglos. Eines Nachts als Hanna McCaulys Wagen beschattet, lässt er ihn einfach rechts ran fahren. McCauley ist bewaffnet, doch das ist kein Moment der Gefahr. Hanna fragt bloss: "What do you say I buy you a cup of coffee?" - McCauley antwortet, dass sich die Idee gut anhört. Nun sitzen sich diese beiden müden Männer mittleren Alters im Diner gegenüber. Beide haben...

Perfect Cat and Mouse Movie

This movie was absolutely amazing. I cannot believe it took me this long to watch it. I really like who they chose to play which roles. I think Pacino was great as the detective and De Niro was great as the criminal. A perfect cat and mouse movie, where both cat and mouse are equally smart and equally devoted to their chosen livelihood. The scene at the coffee table was a brilliant dialogue that I will now think of for all movies with the same background. One chose to dedicate themselves to the right side of the law and the other chose to dedicate himself to breaking the laws. Everything about them is the same except the biggest part of them. The final scene was also extremely breathtaking and exciting. Everyone should watch this movie, if not only for this scene;

"Heat" by Yojimbo

An obsessive robbery homicide detective is locked in a battle of wits with an ingenious crew of professional criminals looking to score a multi-million dollar bank heist under his very nose. When you see a cast list like this one you know you're in for something special, but Heat is not just special; it's an absolute masterclass. It's a fairly common formula in this day and age, showing cop and criminal as two sides of the same coin, but the way Mann effortlessly flits between both sets of superbly realised characters has never been bettered and paved the way for the modern cop drama including everything from Infernal Affairs to The Dark Knight. The performances are all, of course, top notch and every aspect of the film that surrounds them is faultlessly engineered to create a near perfec...

Heat review

A talented cast consisting of the main antagonist criminal tactician Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro), Lieutenant Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino), and Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer). McCauley’s team consists of Chris, Michael Cheritto (Tom Sizemore), Trejo (Danny Trejo), and Waingro (Kevin Gage). Hanna has marital problems and her step daughter Lauren (Natalie Portman) is affected. Neil discovers that Charlene Shiherlis (Ashley Judd) is cheating on Chris with Alan Marciano (Hank Azaria). Memorable quotes from the film: Vincent Hanna – “I gotta hold on to my angst. I preserve it because I need it. It keeps me sharp (snaps fingers), on the edge (snaps fingers), where I gotta be.” Neil McCauley – “I don't even know what I'm doing anymore. I know life is short, whatever time you get is luck. You ...

Pacino and De Niro causes some major friction.

The phrase epic is tossed around in film commentary far too much. Michael Mann's crime drama Heat, however, is very bit deservant of the term. While it certainly contains it's fair share of action (most notably a bank robbery sequence that runs for almost a half hour), those who are seeking an escapist shoot 'em up may find themselves woefully disappointed. This film is long and at times quite slow moving, but not to the effect of being boring. While it runs approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes, not one moment is squandered. It seems as though every single scene serves to give the viewer a deeper, richer understanding of each character.

Heat accomplishes something that very few films in the crime drama genre have been able to do. You know you who the bad guys are, you know where your m...

Pacino and DeNiro together for #31..........

What is not to like? Good solid action by Micheal Mann, my favorite two actors in Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro, the underrated work of Val Kilmer again as well as a supporting cast of Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Diane Venora, Amy Brenneman, Ashley Judd, Natalie Portman and Ted all spells success to me. Even though they reportedly did not shoot a single scene together- it is the two leads that make this movie worthwhile. Pacino plays the determined cop perfectly and DeNiro is equally good as the crook looking to outsmart everyone for his next score. This movie also has the best gun battle scene ever when DeNiro's crew come out of the bank together only to find Pacino and co. waiting for them. Brilliantly directed and full of fun it is one of my favorites which is why it ranks at #...

"Heat" is the best action film of the 90's

I first became a fan of Michael Mann after watching "Collateral". The impeccable shooting of LA and its stylistic cinematography really opened my eyes to this fantastic director. I've gone out and seen other movies from him, such as "Last of the Mohicans" and "The Insider". His other works are good, but Mann truly shines when in downtown LA. So I finally got around to watching "Heat", his long-revered crime movie that faced off Al Pacino and Robert de Niro. And I'll tell you this right now: it's perhaps his finest film.

Mann knows how to create tension, and this film delivers some of cinema's most tense moments on the screen. The famous scene is of course the conversation between Pacino and De Niro around the middle of the flick. I was on the edge of my seat during every second of th...

It’s so exciting to watch Al Pacino and Robert De Niro being in the same movie let alone the same scenes. Even though this film is almost three hours long, there are more moments of brilliance that made me not want to blink in fear of missing a crucial piece of information. There are three stand out scenes in this picture: Pacino and De Niro’s diner scene, the bank robbery showdown, and the silent but epic final duel between the two leads. Those scenes made my heart beat so fast, I thought I was watching “The Departed” for the first time. I also admired the cinematography: the use of color and images to convey or highlight the unsaid is spot-on. The use of the film’s score is never distracting because it is used at the right time. Michael Mann’s direction is impressive in every level beca...
