Critic Reviews for Heat

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The setting is Las Vegas, where Mex wins and loses a lot of money in blackjack without getting too excited about it, and things work up tepidly to the big battle in a factory handily stocked with murderous devices.

The movie is filled with promising starts, but then everything dissolves into a violent action climax.

Jan 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An episodic, off-beat film that's aged well. Burt Reynolds is empathetic as a tired, sad and very lethal tough guy with a heart of gold who longs to leave Las Vegas.
