And Justice for Al: 'Heat'

Welcome back to And Justice for Al, where we debate all things Pacino and follow Al through his storied career. We've reached a high point, one of Pacino's most memorable performances: Michael Mann's 1995 crime drama Heat. It's remembered for its famous shootout scene on the streets of Los Angeles, along with the first-ever on-screen meeting between Al and his equally beloved 'rival' Robert De Niro.

But does Pacino actually shine as Lt. Vincent Hana, or is he just loud and quotable? And what happens when De Niro clearly outshines Al? Andrew and Steve (plus proud Pacino hater Tom) discuss the thing about asses and promise not to waste your motherfuckin' time as they dive into this ode to Los Angeles.
