Heat | 1995 | R | - 3.9.10

Al Pacino is a cop and Robert De Niro is a career criminal who eludes him in this action flick. Also with Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Diane Venora, Amy Brenneman, Ashley Judd, Mykelti Williamson, Wes Studi, Ted Levine, Dennis Haysbert, William Fichtner, Natalie Portman and Tom Noonan. [2:44]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo. Some passionate kissing. A man and woman kiss and slide on top of each other in bed; she's wearing a slip and we see his bare chest. A man leaves a bed obviously nude (although nothing is seen) and we see a sleeping woman lying there (her bare shoulders are visible). A prostitute is shown in a tight bra and underpants.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A number of people are shot many times causing their bodies to jerk and blood to splatter; their bodies are seen later lying in pools of blood. An extended shootout has people running and yelling; many people are shot and some bloody wounds are seen. A man is shot at close range. A woman lies in a tub of blood with deep, bloody cuts on her legs and arms and a woman's corpse is shown with a bruised and bloody face. A man with a bloody, beaten face dies in a pool of blood. A few yelling scenes and people are beaten up a few times. A car crash with an explosion. A man causes a panic in a hotel by tripping the fire alarm.

LANGUAGE 10 - 40 + F-words, many scatological references, a couple of anatomical references and many mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
