One of the best films from back in the day that had action, thrills and great dialogue was the movie Heat. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro were phenomenal in the film.  Now you can see these two iconic actors in the Director’s Definitive Edition that comes out May 9th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In the wake of a precision heist of an armored van, the crew of a fierce, professional thief (De Niro) and an obsessively driven LAPD detective (Pacino) are locked in deadly opposition as they vector towards each other in Mann’s dazzling, twilight vision of Los Angeles. As the stakes escalate and their lives begin to unravel, the crew initiates its most dangerous and complex heist.

Taking inspiration from the late Chicago police detective Charlie Adamson – who killed the actual Neil McCauley in a shootout in 1963 – HEAT was the culmination of years of research by Mann resulting in its depth and range of characters and choreography of action. With its epic scale and stunning performances from Pacino, De Niro, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Amy Brenneman, Diane Venora, Natalie Portman and Jon Voight, HEAT is as incendiary as it was 20 years ago.

Some of the Blu-ray special features include a new Academy Panel reuniting Mann, Pacino and De Niro and moderated by Christopher Nolan. There is the Toronto International Film Festival Q&A with Mann and whole lot more.
