Heat – Nick, der Killer: Directed by Dick Richards, Jerry Jameson. With Burt Reynolds, Karen Young, Peter MacNicol, Howard Hesseman. Las Vegas is the backdrop for all the torrid action of heat, as Burt Reynolds plays the soft-hearted bodyguard who’s out to protect his friends.

“Even though it came out a few months earlier, this great Burt Reynoldu0026#39;s obscurity, u0026quot;Heat,u0026quot; could have easily been a sequel to his other great 80s obscurity, u0026quot;Malone.u0026quot; Once you changed a couple of small plot points to make the films consistent, youu0026#39;d still have exactly the same character at the center of each. Burt acts the same, looks the same, dresses the same, and his character in Heat has a very similar background and the exact same skills as the one on u0026quot;Malone.u0026quot; In fact, the two films even share some of the same lines of dialog (almost). In u0026quot;Maloneu0026quot; the young girl tells Burtu0026#39;s character that he must like violence. Burt replies that u0026quot;No, Iu0026#39;m just good at it–thereu0026#39;s a difference.u0026quot; In u0026quot;Heatu0026quot; Peter McNichol asks Burt if heu0026#39;s a naturally violent person. To which Burt replies u0026quot;No, Iu0026#39;m just good at it.u0026quot; I mean, really–could that be a total coincidence? u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnother similarity–u0026quot;Maloneu0026quot; was basically a old fashioned Western in the u0026quot;Shaneu0026quot; mode. u0026quot;Heatu0026quot; is basically a Spaghetti Western in the revenge mode.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI love both of these flicks and wish theyu0026#39;d get decent DVD releases.”
