The movie Heat came out in 1995 and there has never been a movie like this one, before or after it came out. Micheal Mann in one movie captured the perfect ingredients for a great action police drama that had the perfect story and included a level of tension that remained throughout the movie. The story was excellently told and the major stars in the movie Robert De niro and Al Pacino have never been better.
The bank robbery scene (see below) is by far the best scene if of its kind ever shot in the history of movies. The action the tension and the believablity was extremely well done. One wonders why something this good has never been made again and that is a shame because movies like Heat are what going to the movies is all about.
