    Synopsis


    Body Heat
    Lawrence Kasdan's first directorial effort is a throwback to the early days of film noir. The scene is a beastly hot Florida coastal town, where naive attorney Ned (William Hurt) is entranced by the alluring Matty (Kathleen Turner in her film debut). Ned is manipulated into killing Matty's much older husband (Richard Crenna), the plan being that Ned's knowledge of legal matters will enable both conspirators to escape scott-free. This might have been the case, had not Matty been infinitely craftier than the cloddish Ned. Just when it seems as though the film has run out of plot twists, we're handed yet another surprise. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      William Hurt's 2nd film and Lawrence Kasdan's first. Classic noir style drama set in the 80's. This is the classic story of the femme fatale who finds and seduces a hapless male simply to set him up for the big fall and walk away with all the goodies.

      A film that updates a genre from the 40s while retaining all the period mood and atmosphere. This is a great movie. Sweaty, erotic, intense, very well acted and directed. If you love noir or neo noir, you will not be disappointed.

      Well acted and nicely directed, Body Heat (1981) is suspenseful and entertaining. This neo-noir erotic film centers around a cocky lawyer, Ned Racine, and a lustful babe, Matty Walker. Both characters draw you in and the surprise twists at the film's end make it a delightful 'must-see.'

      Saw this in the discount bin cyber Monday. One of my all time favorite movies with twists and turns and a great soundtrack. Have had this movie on VHS for many, many years and wanted the Blu-ray copy for the future.

      Classic early 80's drama/thriller. Good looking and sounding disc for it's time. This won't be shaking your surround sound up though. Surprisingly, a decent amount of extras on the disc too.
