Critic Reviews for We Are the Heat

All Critics (5)

  • 'We are the Heat' delivers ethnic diversity and representation of an often overlooked Afro-Colombian community by focusing on the musical heritage that strengthened a broken community.

    Mar 13, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Somos Calentura's strength lies in its ability to capture the raw frustrations and unleashed energy in its characters' dance moves. The men's performances develop as the drama in their lives escalate.

  • We Are The Heat is a grand new addition to the pantheon of black-lead gangster movies, the evolution of dancing on film, and a badge of honor for the Afro-Latin people of Colombia that they should be proud to showcase to the world.

    Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Like the marimba-infused dance-floor beats that permeate its soundtrack, this Colombian thriller lacks narrative substance behind its nonstop energy and pulsating rhythm.

  • This is not a great movie, and maybe not even a particularly good one, but it's nice and unpretentious. [Full review in Spanish]
