HEAT (1995)

A film by Micheal man.
Cast : Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer.
Hunters and their prey–Neil and his professional criminal crew hunt to score big money targets (banks, vaults, armored cars) and are, in turn, hunted by Lt. Vincent Hanna and his team of cops in the Robbery/Homicide police division.
Of course they want to retire so they make one last score. At a crucial moment in his life, Neil disobeys the dictum taught to him long ago by his criminal mentor–‘Never have anything in your life that you can’t walk out on in thirty seconds flat, if you spot the heat coming around the corner’–as he falls in love. That stage a great ending.
This film mostly shot in steely blue. BUt let me tell you something he rewrote the film by Jean-Pierre Melville un flic. and that is good he made it his own. None a less the film by Melville was shot in blue green kind of thing.
This is the age-old conflict in American action pictures, between the man with “man’s work” and the female principal, the woman who wants to tame him, wants him to stay at home. The men in his movie are addicted to their lives. What is interesting is the way Mann tests these roles with the women.The wives and girlfriends in this movie are always, in a sense, standing at the kitchen door, calling to the boys to come in from their play
It’s not just an action picture. Above all, the dialogue is complex enough to allow the characters to say what they’re thinking.They’re not trapped with cliches.
