Heat’s a long old slog,2 hours 40 minutes.But it’s a cracker of a film.The first time i saw it 3 years ago i was blown away with it and wondered how i hadn’t seen it sooner.But as i watched it this time i was tuning out because it was still fresh in my head from the last time.You have a pretty good cast with DeNiro and Pacino and even Val Kilmer before he turned to shite.I would have left Ashley Judd out,there’s something about her big rounded face and weird eyes that make not take her seriously as an actress.The plots simple here,we have band of crooks who are being chased by the cops.DeNiro is doing the ‘one last hit’ so he can leave and settle down with a girl he’s known for a full 5 minutes.There’s a lot of shooting and shoot out scenes where it seems the bullet to people getting shot must be about 100:1.Watch Heat once.
