Good but not as good as the ratings make it seem. Extremely unrealistic shoot out scene mid movie. Entertaining but cops blasting machine guns across city streets with pedestrians everywhere? Nope. Also Val Kilmer is kind of creepy. Not sure what else to call him. And why does Amy (yes Judging Amy, that one) just stare all the time? Her and Val should have gotten together. Maybe it was a weird 90's thing, like a holdover from an 80's music video. The interplay between DeNiro and Pacino was good, and if you've somehow missed this movie in the last 22 years like I did, I'll leave you in suspense as to who wins.

Hampered by its nearly 3-hour run time and nothing else, Heat smartly uses the "less is more" method for its leads - giving them minimum screen time together and somehow making that more than enough. Speaking of the leads, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro both give Oscar-worthy performances in their respective roles. Val Kilmer plays one of the single most badass roles of his career, and the rest of the cast are all good at very least. The action is well-shot, intense, and long without losing entertainment value. The score is understated and incredible, and the film as a whole is simply fantastic.

Heat is engrossing in it's realistic tone that makes intense and action-packed which also have Michael Mann his true work of art

Absolutely amazing movie! Never a dull moment. Your always waiting and anticipating what's going to happen next. I can see why so many movies wan't to copy the ideas in this movie and where GTA got some of it's inspiration. Outstanding performances from all actors especially De Niro and Pacino.

A taut, gripping crime thriller, "Heat" features excellent performances from Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.

Tense, beautifully shot, virtuosically acted (and she's got a GUH-REAT ASS) but a little bit hard to follow and somewhat overlong, Heat is an excellent heist film that outshines its copycats easily. There's a bit of cheese to its comparison of the major characters and their decaying personal lives, but its fascinating to focus an action film so much on its characters.

'Heat' has a simple but thrilling plot that never loses steam, but it's the intense performances from Al Pacino and Robert Deniro as the determined heads of two opposing teams who are driven to face off against each other that really makes this such a compelling film to watch. Stylish, taut and never boring, it's a masterpiece of the heist/thriller genre and has Michael Mann in top form leading it to be one of his best films. The only drawback is the overabundance of characters that just don't get enough screen time or backstory, but at the end of the day, that feels like a minor issue when everything else was so ridiculously entertaining.

A well acted and well directed crime film.

It's polished, has good acting, and is fairly thrilling-though a little melodramatic

Story about a professional thief, his gang of thieves, and the detective whose desperate to bust him. Michael Mann makes a sequel to 'Thief' that is almost as good as the original. I like this movie a lot but feel like its missing something that would make it truly great.

Star-power never worked so well, viewers savor the limited time the stars share, making it mythical and it has an ending that's just the cherry on top.

One of my favorite action movies of all time. The bank heist scene is brilliant. Deniro is a legend and Al Pacino is totally on point. Don't moss this movie
½ July 6, 2017
Clearly well thought out and executed perfectly. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro act as complementary opposites in crime life and at the home, yet somehow they are both strikingly similar. Bravo!

The best heist movie to date.

Yes, the LA shootout is the most exciting 10 minutes of film in American movies. Yes, the incredibly scripted and performed coffee shop sequence is an iconic piece of cinema. However, the film that those two sequences inhabit is still incredible. Michael Mann is a master class filmmaker, and he did something truly spectacular here, all across the board.

The ensemble cast, the authentic and urgent action, the gorgeous night cinematography, and the breezy pace. This thing rocks.
