Heat (1995)


Anyone want some pie?
So basically: In Los Angeles, Neil McCauley runs a crew of criminals. He's the best in his field and he likes it that way. After a botched job, police detective Lt Vincent Hanna is in hot pursuit. Lt Hanna is also the best in his field, which puts strain on his third marriage.

With both Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, I was expecting a brilliant cop drama. I was sorely mistaken. This movie is much too long at almost 3 hours and it just seems to drag. I think the writer was trying to do something unique with the genre, but it didn't come across. Neither of the lead characters were interesting and the supporting characters weren't much better.

Save yourself the time, this movie isn't worth it and doesn't deserve to be on the list. There's nothing great about it.

Ziggi seal of disapproval!


  1. Thanks so much, now I want pie.

    Those are both names that are definitely very familiar. Very very familiar. A plus movie, usually I recognize no one.

    Uh-oh, another 3 hour movie? There should be a law against it.

    Poor fail movie. Delegated to the ever growing list of movies I recognize the names of but never plan to watch.

  2. 3.14 is awesome

    This is good. You need to know these names. Defs

    There should. At least, bad 3 hr movies!

    Yeah, that's a sad list :<
