Reviews

"Reynolds and Eastwood play off each other delightfully! > > > > > In Kansas City 1933, wisecracking Detective Murphy (Burt Reynolds) tracks the killer of his partner. Police Lt. Speer (Clint Eastwood) doesn't have much tolerance for the local mob war's body count. Neither guy likes the other, so that makes them a dream team. And it proves the ideal scenario as they clean up the town with slugfests and shoot-'em-ups that parody Reynolds' and Eastwood's macho screen images. Director Richard Benjamin gets the '30s stylishly right, and the supporting cast - Jane Alexander, Irene Cara, Rip Torn, Richard Roundtree, Tony Lo Bianco and Madeline Kahn - make the antics sparkle. Hard-boiled and hilarious, "City Heat" is your red-hot ticket to starry entertainment...

This is in someways a bit of a knockabout type of film, but in others, it treads the tracks of the classic noir crime films.

That said it is watchable and there is some good action, you may recognise the street sets from countless Hollywood films and TV programs!

The action is very good and Clint Eastwood's charachter does not stint in the unloading of his weapon, so if you like Dirty Harry, this should appeal too.

An interesting plot which is cleverly done, the sets are very good with lots of original props from the time, this could almost have been made in the 40's not in the 80's when it was made.

Co-starring one superstar star at his box-office peak and another just about to start his slide back to TV, City Heat was one of those sure-fire things that quickly turned into a troubled production that wasn't really worth all the trouble. Teaming up Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds certainly seemed like a good idea, but shortly after starting shooting under the original title Kansas City Jazz, Eastwood fell out with director Blake Edwards, who left the picture taking co-star Julie Andrews (aka Mrs Edwards) with him and leaving an apparently nervous Richard Benjamin to take over the directorial reins amid rumors that he was simply keeping his head down, doing what the star told him and being careful not to spill his coffee. With the look of the film, that's not too much of a stretch - it's certainly lit like an Eastwood film, with the dark look the star always favored (where Reynolds opted for bad plastic surgery, Eastwood just turned all the lights out as he got older!) - but the biggest problem is that the film just seems too slight to work in more than fits and starts.

The film turned out even worse for Reynolds than it did for Edwards. Despite his penchant for period films (At Long Last Love, Nickelodeon, Lucky Lady), Reynolds never had much luck with them, and this was probably the unluckiest of them all: it may have done okay at the box-office but an accident in a fight sequence left him with a broken jaw and serious weight loss that led to rumors he was dying of AIDS that did his already failing career no favors. (Eastwood didn't come away entirely unscathed by the tabloids either: with the stars referring to each other as Stan and Ollie, this is probably where those bizarre rumors about him being Stan Laurel's lovechild began!)

Filmed on the same Warner Bros.

The weight of expectation for City Heat was massive, two iconic Hollywood actors together in a buddy buddy cop movie, one with nods and homages to film noir and old school gangster movies, it wasn't unreasonable to expect a movie to sit with the best on Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynold's then CV's circa 1984. Unfortunately it's no masterpiece or close to being in the upper echelon's of each actor's respective works. But that doesn't make it a bad film.

A change of director saw Blake Edwards replaced by Richard Benjamin after Eastwood and Edwards, ahem, couldn't see eye to eye, so that immediately put the film on the back foot in many critic's eyes. Ironically Benjamin does OK - working from Edwards' script (there's a whole bunch of back stories and tittle-tattle assigned to this film if you care to search for it). Lots of fun here, though, as Clint and Burt, one a cop, the other an ex-cop turned PI, reluctantly team up to cut a swathe through the gangsters ruling the roost in prohibition era Kansas City.

Eastwood does his straight backed machismo act, throwing awesome punches along the way, while Reynolds is wonderfully cheerful as a tough guy who all things considered, would rather not get hurt! The script is full of zingers, delivered with customary sardonic self parody by the stars, while the roll call of supporting actors is not to be sniffed at. Period detail is high end, with Nick McLean's photography carrying the requisite neo-noir impact, while the music tracking is pleasingly nostalgic.

It's over the top of course and needlessly convoluted as per its yearning to be noirish, yet if you can cut back your expectation levels? And you can simply enjoy the sight of Eastwood and Reynolds having fun romping in this period? Then you just might enjoy this more than you dared to believe. 7/10

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Mercy on 25 July 2011
By 1984 the box office status of both Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds had slipped a little since their 1970s' heyday, so it must have seemed like a winning idea from a producer's standpoint to pair the two in a movie, in order to draw in both stars' fans whilst the concept still had some appeal. However, the resulting period comedy-thriller was a notoriously troubled production that started life as a script called Kansas City Jazz, before acquiring the more generic title of City Heat en route to cinemas and a decidedly lacklustre commercial performance, probably not helped by the fact that it opened almost simultaneously opposite Eddie Murphy's smash hit Beverly Hills Cop.
Set in 1933, the story has Reynolds as a grifting private eye who finds himself in the middle of a gang war when an attempted blackmailing goes wrong and his slippery partner (Richard Roundtree) ends up dead. With both his secretary (Jane Alexander) and his society girlfriend (Madeline Khan) in danger, he has to try to clear up the mess whilst staying one step ahead of his hated ex-colleague, Eastwood's fearsome local cop...
Though originally slated to be a Blake Edwards movie (with his wife Julie Andrews pencilled in for the Khan part), the project was quickly assimilated into the long run of Warner / Malpaso co-productions when Eastwood took a dislike to Edwards and assumed control of the film, installing his own choice of director in the form of Richard 'Westworld' Benjamin, and packing the production team out with his usual crew. Despite his top billing, Eastwood really only has a supporting role during the movie's first half, playing a semi-comic variant on his usual super-cop persona, but this time in a Chester Gould-era setting.
