HEAT (DVD) Image


By Chris Barsanti | July 9, 1995

Michael Mann’s “Los Angeles crime saga” was one of 1995’s most acclaimed films–not to mention it featured the first on-screen meeting of acting gods Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro. So coming from Warner Bros.–who, along with sister company New Line, is arguably the leader in quality DVD presentation–one would expect a bit more imagination and effort in the DVD package than there is. Granted, the film is riveting enough on its own to not need too many extras (and film-to-disc transfer is exquisite in sight and sound), but the virtual lack thereof can’t help but be disappointing: all there is are the film’s three different theatrical trailers. One would hope for at least a spiffy animated menu like many other WB titles, but, alas, there are generic still screens.
