"Heat" is an exceptional, vigorous and agile film, that counts with anefficient cast and a brilliant and structured story in a correct way. Inthis world where everybody looks for pleasures without limits, NickEscaliente (magnificently interpreted by Burt Reynolds), a veteran combatantfrom Vietnam, specialist in martial arts, tries to win a lot of money in thecasinos of Nevada. In his side, there are two inseparable friends, a boy(Peter MacNicol, also excellent and funny) and a prostitute. When his friendis murdered, Escaliente decides to show all his ferocity and his know-how inthe martial arts, and to kill the mafioso ones. Reynolds is brilliant, andat the same time frightening as a man who carries inside of him a lot ofhate and he riots and he is always ready to explode!the sequences where heavenges the friends' death and he beats to the end his enemies is of aviolence and explicit plasticity. The director doesn't lose the control ofthe plot, and it drives the intrigue with a surgical precision, showing thatthe distance between the exaggerated violence and the happiness is short andfragile. I affirm that "Heat" is a "current" western, because the storyhappens in a dangerous and lawless Las Vegas, where the smallest negligencecan mean the end!and "Heat" portrays this city with fidelity andprofessionalism, offering a plausible, pleasant and unforgettable show!thisfilm really needs to be seen, appreciated and applauded!Burt Reynoldsrespects, as always, his fans, and he offers his more common acting: thesolitary man, tough, charming, cynic and extremely lethal, who is always inthe limit. The film seems to have been done in the measure for the star, andit still reaches its objective, guaranteed a hallucinating, explosive andtouching day in Las Vegas!rent it, and you will understandwhy!!!

I give credit to any medium that starts with me disliking a character, then gets me to change my mind a few scenes later. We also get some memorable moments, one which will not leave my head anytime soon.
After the fifty minute mark though the intensity started to die, and with it my interest.
This movie is two stories that /mostly/ come together in the third act.
Story one I quite liked. The killing intent Holly (Karen Young) exhibited grabbed my full attention. We also get a thoroughly despicable (if not terribly fleshed out) psychopath as a bonus.
Story two was where I started to drift. Rich white dudes who think not getting hurt period can be solved with winning a fist fight. Mex's (Reynolds') self-destructive tendencies which had me pitying him, but didn't really make me feel closer to him emotionally. (Shucks, I felt closer to the Black Jack dealer.) Our lead kept sabotaging his own dreams and his character wasn't strong enough that this type of story worked for me.
The ending had adequate tension, but not enough to save the movie.
The two reasons I would recommend this film are 1) Karen Young's performance 7/10 stars and/or 2) You are a Burt Reynolds fan.
I found this movie in a drunken stupor in the cheap movie bin at Wal Mart,and being the Burt Reynolds fan that I am, I picked it up. What that DVDcase contained was one of the most ridiculous ever. Burt Reynolds break'sadude's leg by kicking him, slashes another guy's face with a creditcard...and that's just the start of all the fun! AT the end of the film,hepushes a wall over on a bad guy, inpales on with a medal rod onto acircuitboard, electrocuting him...then the best one of the film...he throwsgasoline all over some poor shmuck, then Burt proceeds to jump 30 feet inthe air, kick out a light bulb, which sets the gas-soaked man ablaze. Ohyeah, he also uses his the Force to pick up a butter knife when startledbythe guy from Ghostbusters 2. COnfused yet? Hope so. This movie will makeyathat way, so be prepared, young ones. I give this movie my best ratingpossible---5 bong hits out of 5!!!
