The Heat

High-Def Digest
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I enjoy a good comedic genre flick. We're had plenty of them in this same buddy cop vein in the recent past - ' Hot Fuzz ,' ' The Other Guys ,' etc – and this one is slightly better than average. It's better than 'The Other Guys,' but nowhere near as great as 'Hot Fuzz.

The Heat (Blu-Ray Review)

  • Conclusion: Fox delivers a terrific presentation of the year’s #1 comedy to Blu-ray. I found the film itself to be okay, but I can see general audiences enjoying it quite a bit. It’s a generic, tired tale with fresh modern comedy and gender reversal (sad that this is the first I can think of) thrown in.

The Heat Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Heat must’ve taken a small century to shoot. Over saturation of ad libbing turns this feminine buddy cop flick into a piecemeal comedy, where it would seem the often regretful story arc is secondary.

  • Summary: A solid buddy-cop action-comedy that draws all its energy from Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, who are flat-out funny and fun to watch.

The Heat

BluRay Authority
16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s amazing how much you can tell about a movie just by looking at the poster, or in this case the cover to the Blu-Ray. Yes, I know in past reviews I’ve said that I was guilty of judging a book by its cover though it’s a hard habit to break.

The Heat (2013)

15 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Heat is undeniably funny a lot of the time, but it's also a bit too predictable for its own good. Bullock and McCarthy make a very appealing "odd couple", however, and help the film to overcome its more rote elements.

The Heat

The Digital Fix
29 July 2013
  • Excerpt: It must be tough for Paul Feig . Everything he does is met with the high expectations of somebody who directed Bridesmaids , created Freaks and Geeks , and played Mr Pool in Sabrina the Teenage Witch The Heat certainly starts off promisingly as an old-fashioned crime comedy with Sandra Bullock and...

Cinema Blend
28 June 2013
  • Excerpt: It's not easy for directors to develop a distinctive style in comedy, a genre that's almost always more about the dialogue and the actors than the camera that captures them. But Paul Feig may be joining his pal Judd Aaptow as a rare modern exception.
