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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
a guaranteed bad movie. Then he dropped out of sight for years, and then
re-emerged with "The Wrestler", a good movie. Then this came out and I thought
I'd give it a try. The "good guy" in this film is played by Kellan Lutz (a younger
beefcake actor) supposedly a Marine still grieving for the death of his older
brother who he followed into the service. Somehow he ends up in Java Indonesia,
trying to help a local detective (played by a well-known Indonesian actor named
Ario Baku) to figure out the abduction of a princess and then, to save his family
who are kidnapped by the ridiculous bad-guy played by Rourke.
Of all the problems with the movie the bad-guy character is the most problematic.
What the heck accent is that supposed to be? How come he can kill local people
casually when he has no visible bodyguards around him? And generally, do people
really run around the streets there firing automatic weapons and nobody else stops
Do yourself a favor--skip this one.
