You can't tell what's important and what isn't, and some may mistake the movie's incoherence for profundity.

I admire Mann's emotional commitment and his sense of style, but it also grates on me.

Heat runs (sometime crawls) 2:51, but there is really only enough material for two hours.

All the squealing tires, flying bullets and falling bodies cannot save Heat from drowning in its own banalities ...

There isn't much to recommend this movie until Pacino and De Niro finally share the first of their two scenes together.

As the credits finally rolled, someone behind me muttered, "That was so long, DeNiro could have gone to prison in the first scene and finished his sentence before the movie was over."

As Heat progresses, its sensational looks pale beside storytelling weaknesses that expose the more soulless aspects of this cat-and-mouse crime tale.

The director's signature sleek and romantic aesthetic is reason enough to take a seat for this operatic three-hour marathon.

Heat Heat has an intoxicating, seductive look and feel, and if viewers can check their brains at the door, it succeeds on a surface level.
