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.

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.

Right off the bat, I will tell you why I only went 4 stars...this movie lost one star because I could not understand one word that Mickey Rourke was saying and if he was trying for some king of accent I have no idea what it was. there went one star. Now for the positives. I find I am loving Ke3llan Lutz in many, many of these small movies. I am seriously hoping that one day he gets "the" break. He does a great job playing an American in Indonesia to track down the villain who killed his brother, Kellan plays a Marine who runs afoul of local authorities who blame him for the death of their Sultana. The best performance is by the Indonesian cop played by Ario Bayu....superb! Lots of action and a decent script and decent acting make for an entertaining movie. Please someone make Kellan a superstar!

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.

Once I read a commentary saying that any movie with Mickey Rourke in it was
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
partying?

Do yourself a favor--skip this one.
