The film is based on Detective Chuck Adamson's pursuit of serial criminal Neil McCauley in the 1960s.
According to the featurettes Pacino, DeNiro and the Conversation and The Making of Heat: True Crime,
included in the special-edition DVD, which includes a taped interview with Adamson, the scene of McCauley
and Hanna in the restaurant was also based on a real event. Adamson met the real McCauley in a coffee shop
and openly discussed the possible course of future events. The scene in which McCauley abandons the precious-metal heist
after hearing a noise was also based on a real event: McCauley abandoned the robbery after one of Adamson's officers,
positioned on the top floor of a building McCauley and his crew were breaking into, broke protocol to go to the toilet.
McCauley heard, and withdrew.Heat is essentially an elaborate remake of the 1989 TV film L.A. Takedown,
also directed by Mann ! Fianl scene and soundtrack are amazing :
the dispute and friendship between lieutenant/gangster are successful.
