The story is about two men face each other on opposite sides (one a thief, one an officer) they battle for ground as they explore the streets of L.A. This movie has Al Pacino a legend actor and we got Robert DE Niro who is a legend as well, all two of those actors having a shoot down with either is just pure epic and this movie didn't let me down.

Al Pacino + Robert De Niro + Michael Mann = one of the best heist movies of all time!

A good, not great movie that could've been 20 minutes shorter, (cut out the Natalie Portman story line) and it would've made it a better movie. It was a treat to see DeNiro and Pacino interacting with each other in the same film. They both appeared in Godfather II (1974) but they never interacted with each other in it. Again, trim the fat, and it would've been a perfect 4 star film with a perfect balance of action and story telling.

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 so viel …

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

Yojimbo - wrote on 12/27/2011

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 …
