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 brilliant L.A. cop Vincent Hanna (Pacino) following the trial from a deadly armed robbery to a crew headed by equally brilliant master thief Neil McCauley (De Niro).
’Heat’ goes way beyond the expectations of the cops-and-criminals genre and into the realm of movie masterpiece.
