One of my favorite heist / criminal movies of all time. I have owned this on Laserdisc, DVD, and now bluray. I don't think I will buy it again though, I've seen it so many times that a tiny rez uptick to 4k would likely not really be noticed.

I did google what the differences are with the director edition, and it's two tiny little dialog edits that don't even concern primary characters. No big.

Since this movie is now over twenty years old (damn I'm old) a lot of younger generations haven't seen it, or maybe have only seen the edited versions they play on FX etc. Do yourself a favor and get it and watch it at least twice. You pick up more of the tiny little details with each viewing.

With the exception of the old cellphones and 1 or 2 scenes showing a computer or laptop, this movie TOTALLY holds up. It doesn't look or feel it's age. I mean if you can get over how young everyone looks. Especially Natalie Portman, I think she might be 12 years old here, just a kid. And it's nice to see Val Kilmer before his career went down the shitter. There are so many stars in this movie it's crazy.

Great flick. One of my top 10 lifetime favorites.

Every now and then I pop it in just to watch the bank scene. Funny thing people think that was based on the real LA shootout against armored thugs, but it actually came out before that happened. Life imitates art, not the other way around LOL

edit - for some reason I was feeling older than normal and said 30 years. corrected

Apparently there is a pre-order of Heat UHD4K disc coming but with no release date available yet. I've had the digital version of the 4K title for months, but the video quality of the streaming (4K) version is not that much better than the Blu Ray (1080p) version.

Are you sure it's 4k? I was unaware they had made this movie into 4k...

edit: looks like it is.. does anyone know if there is a disc version available?

so ive had issues with MA going to vudu, just in general. but would this movie end up working in 4k on vudu if and when vudu gets the 4k edition?

is it a per movie thing or a per studio thing or just all ma wont do 4k on vudu. (i think it works the other direction though if its redeemed as 4k on vudu)

If the movie becomes available in 4K on Vudu, it will automatically be updated to 4K at that time.

I've tried watching this 4K version on a few different platforms and it always looks darker than it should. I found a thread here [macrumors.com] with other people having the same issue. So if you buy it, check it out to make sure it looks right.

Reference: Got the HD blu-ray for $3 last Nov. from Best Buy and redeemed the code for 4K through Apple with MA. Double the benefits for almost half the price.

The bank scene uses what is actually " automatic " weapons...

The fact they used real ones made the entire scene.

That's what I thought... I'm a huge fan of this movie, but the reason I'd prefer the disc is the sound quality and for a movie like this (the shootout scenes with the echoes) sound is a big deal! Digital version never compares to the disc!
