Editorial Reviews

Academy Award Nominee®* and Golden Globe Winner Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, Immortals, Iron Man 2) and Kellan Lutz (Twilight, Immortals) square off the ultimate battle for domination in JAVA HEAT, an exotic cross-cultural action thriller. Following a terrorist attack in Indonesia that killed the country s beloved Sultana, headstrong American Jake Travers (Lutz) suddenly finds himself in the center of the already tense conflict between the West and Islam. Teaming up with Muslim detective Hashim (Indonesian star Ario Bayu), the unlikely duo embark on a treacherous manhunt for the attack s real perpetrator, a new breed of klepto-terrorist (Rourke), who is even more twisted and terrifying than the Jihadist terrorists he hides behind. As he navigates the labyrinths of religious, political, and cultural havoc that surround him, Jake must learn to abandon his thirst for vengeance in order to stop the mastermind from attacking again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exotic Indonesian B Movie Kept Me Engaged. January 10, 2014
Format:DVD
I first saw JAVA HEAT at a local action movie festival back in May of 2013. I had never heard of it and went to see it to help support the festival and raise money for a local charity. I wasn't expecting much as most of the movies in this festival had been no great shakes. All action and nothing else. This suited the fans just fine but it left me with a sprained wrist from checking my watch so often. However I came out of JAVA HEAT pleasantly surprised. Not only was I engaged throughout but I got to see lots of local Indonesian culture and more than capable performances from Indonesian actors Ario Bayu and Atiquah Hasiholan. Mickey Rourke as the international villain (in addition to English he speaks French, Arabic & Javanese) is a delight to watch and to root against. He's clearly enjoying himself as much as Javier Bardem did in SKYFALL. While he-man Kellan Lutz is the weak link in the chain, he is more than adequate to the task at hand (resembling a cross between Christopher Reeve and a young Arnold Schwarzenegger) and he looks great in the buff. There's also a brief moment that makes fun of him having been in TWILIGHT. The film proved so popular that the theater brought it back for a one week run shortly after the festival.

JAVA HEAT is a throwback to the exotic B movie fare of yore like MACAO or SIROCCO only retooled for the 21st century with a little nudity, occasional bursts of graphic violence, and a lot of action set pieces. It has no aspirations of being anything other than what it is, an entertaining way to fill 100 minutes of your time. The use of split screen ala Brian De Palma (think CARRIE) is both retro and put to good use.

Format:Blu-ray
The action thriller "Java Heat" isn't necessarily a terrible movie, it just ends up being entirely forgettable and somewhat empty-headed. The movie looks like it will be a contemporary political puzzler, but never makes the most of its exotic locale and intriguing premise. What might have been an intricate and relevant look at religious strife and political maneuvering quickly goes somewhere far less interesting from a plotting standpoint. And when all the truths are revealed, my gut reaction was "who cares?" On the plus side, the movie is set in Indonesia which provides for plenty of local color. The action sequences are well executed, even if there aren't any real stand-out moments. And the movie features a really appealing lead performance from Indonesian actor Ario Bayo as a local detective. My principle negative, though, (aside from a rather mundane story) has got to be Kellan Lutz in the biggest role. Lutz is a man committed to a mission, supposedly with plenty of secrets and savvy, but ends up coming off like a frat boy throughout. He never demonstrates the smarts necessary to believe his character. It's like he's making a buddy cop comedy and no one else is, so he seems completely out of place.

The tale begins with Lutz in custody after a bombing which left the Indonesian Sultana dead. As the woman was to be her country's future leader, her untimely demise has long range political repercussions. Although suspicious of Lutz and his story, the detective in charge (Bayo) is thrown into cooperation with the American. Lutz is not being entirely forthcoming, however, and his actions bring him to the attention of criminal mastermind Mickey Rourke. As the investigation is leading to the unscrupulous Rourke, he takes counter measures.

2.0 out of 5 stars SPEAK LESS, LEARN MORE September 30, 2013
Format:DVD
Not since "Rush Hour" has there been two more mismatched investigators. Jake Wilde (Kellan Lutz- Matt Damon light) teams up with an Indonesian policeman, Lieutenant Hashim (Ario Bayu) to go after the killer of the Sultana (Atiqah Hasiholan). She was the Princess Di of Indonesia. Malik (Mickey Rourke) soon appears as the bad guy who uses reluctant Jihadists to steal art and jewels.

The plot doesn't have any real twists, although the identity of Jake changes from scene to scene. This is a "me too" crime action drama that never grabs you because the characters are written so bland. I felt like I was watching a serious Bollywood production without the dance numbers. The film has some interesting scenes, but for the most part is not worth a rental.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs. Brief male nudity (Kellan Lutz glute)

3.0 out of 5 stars (2.5 STARS) 1980-ish Buddy-Buddy Movie in Indonesia September 10, 2013
Format:DVD
"Java Heat" re-uses or recycles the conventions of Hollywood buddy-buddy cop movies of the 80s, that "Hot Fuzz" effectively parodied, but director Conor Allyn takes them very seriously. Kellan Lutz, best known for his role as Emmett Cullen in "The Twilight Saga" franchise, plays an American named Jake, who is interrogated by a no-nonsense Indonesian police detective Lieutenant Hashim (Ario Bayu) about a terrorist bomb attack that killed Princess Diana.

Of course, Jake is not what he says he is. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Belushi in Walter-Hill-directed "Red Heat," our two heroes team up rather reluctantly at first, but in the course of hunting down the villain and occasional bickering, they come to understand each other.

The scenery-chewing Mickey Rourke in white jacket plays the villain named Malik. He is sort of a criminal mastermind living in a gorgeous mansion, whose motive for criminal behavior is not very convincing.

Some action film fans may not enjoy the film, of which strength lies in the two main characters. There are a few decent action set-pieces, but the director seems more interested in showing the relationships between Jake and Lieutenant Hashim, and the beautiful sceneries of Java.

That works to some extent, but the film is undermined by the story that goes nowhere. "Java Heat" is a reasonably entertaining B action, but I would urge you not to expect too much from that.
