Java Heat Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
18 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The straight-to-video low-budget action movie sub-genre is such a minefield of awfulness that few are willing to run through it. Seeing a merely decent one, then, is like making it through unscathed. And that's Java Heat ; it's not great , but it's a relief, in that you don't feel like you completely wasted your time watching it.

Java Heat Blu-ray Review

DoBlu
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Cultural clashes and gunfire spearhead this overly loud and unaccomplished action flick, gunked up with pervasive violence leading to nowhere. Square jawed Twilight vet Kellan Lutz cannot pull in a convincing lead as CIA/FBI/Student/Other Jake Wilde, stranded in Indonesia after terrorists brandish their suicidal might. Java Heat loosely threads together a distrusting buddy picture with dire implications, Wilde paired with local detective Hashim (Ario Bayu).

Java Heat

Slant Magazine
26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Java Heat adheres to the reliable guidelines of the buddy-cop movie. The rules are invitingly simple. A white cop, or some other vague official who can somewhat logically carry a gun in public, is paired with a not-white cop, or some other vague official who can somewhat logically carry a gun in public.

Java Heat

AV Club
9 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Java Heat is an action movie for serious action movie buffs. Neither outrageous nor self-conscious, it looks and moves like any number of good late-’80s/early-’90s action flicks. In lieu of smashed-in zooms and jittery handheld, director Conor Allyn opts for wide-angle lenses and Steadicam shots; the result is clear and concise.
