Heat

A group of professional bank robbers start to feel the heat from police when they unknowingly leave a clue at their latest heist.

Hunters and their prey-Neil and his professional criminal crew hunt to score big money targets (banks, vaults, armored cars) and are, in turn, hunted by Lt. Vincent Hanna and his team of cops in the Robbery/Homicide police division. A botched job puts Hanna onto their trail while they regroup and try to put together one last big 'retirement' score. Neil and Vincent are similar in many ways, including their troubled personal lives. At a crucial moment in his life, Neil disobeys the dictum taught to him long ago by his criminal mentor-'Never have anything in your life that you can't walk out on in thirty seconds flat, if you spot the heat coming around the corner'--as he falls in love. Thus the stage is set for the suspenseful ending...

Review:

"The action sequences are truly riveting and intense, especially a bank robbery that dissolves into violence. The movie is three hours long, yet it maintains its pace and the audience's attention throughout." ~Madeleine Williams, CINEMATTER

Pulsating thriller

Good vs evil, the unstoppable force vs the immovable object, a classic thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat with De niro and Pacino this is one not to miss if you have not seen it yet.

This must rank as one of Michael Mann's best! The street shootout scene is still the best bar none. An all time classic!
