Criminal and police face off in bloody '90s action-adventure

So why doesn't Heat, with its elaborately staged, tautly edited robberies, its killer cast, edgy score and elegant cinematography, offer more satisfaction? It's the script, stupid.

The performances are persuasive but the plot rattles on much too long.

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

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

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

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

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."

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

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