"Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner."

I've been watching some Micheal Mann films lately and so far heat is my favorite.
It's an action movie but not the cliché of a testosterone and explosion filled action film. No annoyingly fast montage or explosions all over the place. It has an excellent cast : Robert De Niro AND Al Pacino (+young Natalie Portman !) and a great director of photography.
I especially loved the scenes at night in MCcauley's apartment with a wonderful view of the ocean.

The story is rather simple : Neil MCcauley is a career criminal with a love for big heists.
When a job goes wrong he is hunted by diehard cop Vincent Hanna(Pacino) . While Hanna is closing in on the criminals MCcauley wants to pull off one last big score...
