where’s the heat?

You may have seen the 1995 movie Heat, in which Al Pacino plays a cop and Robert DeNiro a robber. Apparently there was an earlier low-budget version of the movie called LA Takedown. Segments of both movies are on the Intertoobs, so you can watch and compare.

Here is a major scene from the movie in which predator and prey take a timeout in a coffee shop. I think one of the living legends acquits himself very well versus his doppleganger in the earlier film, the other one not so much.

Have a look and see what you think.

Heat Version

PS The part where they both say they don’t know how to do anything else is very…resonant, to me anyway.
