Reviews

'A quarter of a century after his classic heist film Heat, the director Michael Mann returns to the scene of the crime in this absolutely gripping thriller, written with Meg Gardiner. Twin timelines explore the before-and-after of that celluloid clash between the unstoppable bank robber Neil McCauley and the immovable Los Angeles cop Vincent Hanna, with the action ranging from home invasions in suburban Chicago to Chinese crime families in 1990s Paraguay. Sweep, self-confidence and a cinematic sheen make this the most immersive of reads' The Times
