The Heat (2013)
RJG Rating- 50
A female FBI agent is paired with a female cop to take down a drug lord.
Starring- Sandra Bullock,Melissa McCarthy
Director- Paul Feig
Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy take the lead in the Heat.They have a good chemistry with each other and at certain scenes it carries off.Among the two ,it was Melissa that stole most the scenes.Sandra on the other hand seems a bit out of place in some scenes.She looks too anemic and a bit old to play such a role.Melissa & Sandra are no strangers to comedy.But like most of her recent movies,Melissa is great in comic scenes ,and it shows in The Heat.
Story for the Heat is nothing special.Its the usual buddy cop movie ,this time replaced with female leads.The story is too simple ,and it relies on Sandra & Melissa to cover up this deficiency.The climax itself is cliched and extremely predictable.
Direction by Paul Feig is good.He manages to keep the movie afloat even with all the above mentioned issues.The pacing of the movie was ok.
Overall ,The Heat is just another one of the buddy-cop movies that you might have seen plenty of times before.Theres nothing interesting nor that funny in this movie.See it if you are a fan of Melissa or Sandra or if you have nothing else to do.
