2.0 out of 5 stars SPEAK LESS, LEARN MORE
Not since "Rush Hour" has there been two more mismatched investigators. Jake Wilde (Kellan Lutz- Matt Damon light) teams up with an Indonesian policeman, Lieutenant Hashim (Ario Bayu) to go after the killer of the Sultana (Atiqah Hasiholan). She was the Princess Di of Indonesia. Malik (Mickey Rourke) soon appears as the bad guy who uses reluctant Jihadists to steal art...

Not since "Rush Hour" has there been two more mismatched investigators. Jake Wilde (Kellan Lutz- Matt Damon light) teams up with an Indonesian policeman, Lieutenant Hashim (Ario Bayu) to go after the killer of the Sultana (Atiqah Hasiholan). She was the Princess Di of Indonesia. Malik (Mickey Rourke) soon appears as the bad guy who uses reluctant Jihadists to steal art and jewels.

The plot doesn't have any real twists, although the identity of Jake changes from scene to scene. This is a "me too" crime action drama that never grabs you because the characters are written so bland. I felt like I was watching a serious Bollywood production without the dance numbers. The film has some interesting scenes, but for the most part is not worth a rental.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs. Brief male nudity (Kellan Lutz glute)

Not a bad film but a little over acted. Good in sight for interest in Java.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, could have been much better though, 30 Aug 2013
This review is from: Java Heat [DVD] (DVD)
This film went straight to DVD as far as I'm aware, and you can see why. The story itself isn't bad and there's plenty of action if that's the bag you're into, but I felt a different director with a bit more cash to splash may well have turned this into a none too minor hit....but....the story meanders round too much, certainly in the middle of the film and it just felt rather confused as if the makers weren't totally sure in which direction to take things and when cutting cobbled together a mixture of edits. I could have forgiven that, but oh, the acting. Mickey Rourke did seem to be reading (mumbling) his lines straight off the page, but the real horror was Kellan Lutz, an actor so wooden that splinters were hitting the screen every time he appeared. I've never wanted to see Twilight so have no idea whether he was any better in that but I guess a handsome face and a few muscles go a long way...doesn't mean he shouldn't perhaps pursue a less taxing career choice than one which requires the ability to walk and talk at the same time without looking like it's using every brain cell he has!
Shame, certainly not rubbish as the story had plenty of merit and a few twists and turns and was definitely pretty pacy but simply could have been so much better.
