ReviewSource Time Magazine
Review Dispassion vs. passion, intellect vs. instinct, the implosive vs. the explosive style - as writer-director Michael Mann develops the duel between the cop and robber in Heat, his film becomes a compassionate contemplation of the two most basic ways of being male and workaholic in modern America...All [the inner turmoil in his characters] adds good weight and tension to the movie and provides a lot of very good actors with the opportunity to do honest, probing work in a context where, typically, less will do. But Mann's aspirations don't stop there. Having revived the historical saga in The Last of the Mohicans, he obviously wants to do the same thing for what has become a much more familiar (and tiresome) genre, the urban action picture. This Mann achieves with truly epic sweep, maniacal conviction and awesome technical proficiency. He announces his intentions in an opening sequence that may be the best armored-car robbery ever placed on film.

Review ...director Mann (Thief, Manhunter, The Last of the Mohicans) remakes his 1989 TV movie L.A. Takedown by bringing two acting titans together in one of the most intelligent crime-thrillers to come along in years...What's so effective is the intriguing character examination we find at the heart of the film...Although the two share little screen time together, Pacino and De Niro's scenes are poignant and gripping...Hanna and McCauly eventually meet again in one of the greatest bank robbery/shoot-out scenes ever that is beautifully chaotic and masterfully edited (last January's Bank of America shoot-out in L.A. was an eerie reenactment). With a stellar cast including Val Kilmer and Jon Voight, Heat has it all including a great soundtrack full of tone-setting, ambient, and symphonic arrangements.
