The 50 Best Movies of the '90s

8. Heat (1995)

Director: Michael Mann
Stars: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Mykelti Williamson

Heat focuses on two men, one a thief (Robert De Niro) and the other a detective (Al Pacino). The two play a cat and mouse game where both know a heist is being plotted as each man keeps a close eye on the other.

Pacino. De Niro. Together at last. Michael Mann's Heat is more than just a caper film, it's a crime saga that not only explores the professional lives but also the personal relationships of men who know nothing beyond their occupation. Plus it features one of the best shoot out scenes we've ever seen. —VC
