Review – City Heat

I started out all pissed off that Hollywood made a movie set in Kansas City but then cut out all the references to it. But by the end of the ordeal I found myself genuinely grateful that my hometown was spared direct association with a stinker like this. The main draw is a team-up of Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood, and perhaps if they’d made a more straightforward action movie it might have worked. Instead, this is a poorly-written, goofy comedy. Every once in awhile Eastwood gets in a good line, but otherwise it’s just too dumb for words. It didn’t particularly help that something was wrong with Encore’s copy of the movie and the sound didn’t quite match the picture. Mildly amusing
