The action will make you thirsty and hungry,
This review is from: Heat [DVD]  (DVD)
A long but actively entertaining film, though it has no real suspense since we know the end will be gory and glorious, for LAPD of course.
You take too actors that are so close physically that you can hardly make out who is the cop and who is the thief. They also behave so much the same way that you can't even distinguish their shadows or their outlines on the blue sky of LA.
You just have to follow the action and action there is with a tremendous number of collateral victims and collateral damage. The more broken glass and the more banged up metal, the better and the only thing that does not crash in that film is a plane or a helicopter, but apart from those and ships everything else crashes at one time or other in the action.
So take it the way it comes and let yourself go into this action that has been copied a lot. Some scenes are so common that even "Prison Break" used them and, true enough, rejuvenated them a little. It is like the shower scene of "Psycho." It has been used so much that the descent of it is more important than all the plays by Shakespeare, Marlowe and Ben Jonson thrown together on the table. Though I must admit there are not very many prostitutes in this film.
Well, we can't have them all, after all.
