Pretty Good Action Flick

A Muslim detective teams with an American (Kellan Lutz) posing as a graduate student to find the man (Mickey Rourke) behind a series of deadly terrorist bombings in Indonesia.

Although this seems in some ways to be an inferior-grade "Bourne" film, it has plenty to offer: a fresh lead actor, a great villain (Rourke, as a "klepto-terrorist") and all the action you expect from such a film -- explosions, gun fights and car crashes.

My biggest issues were not really with the film itself (which I thought was pretty good), but more technical matters. The DVD/BD seems to have not had the volume synced properly (conversations are too quiet, action too loud) and the subtitles are hard to read -- both because they are small, and also because they leave the screen too quickly. I would have enjoyed the film much more if these problems were corrected.

My name is James...James Boring... I mean real boring

The photography is great! And that is the only positive thing that I can muster up about Java Heat. Kellan Lutz plays Jake Wilde a military man who visits Indonesia and tries to figure out who is responsible for the suicide bombers blowing up parties as well as his little brother. Jake is joined in his search by a local Indonesian detective named Lieutenant Hashim played by Ario Bayu. They reluctantly agree to join forces although neither trusts the other to capture the evil Russian villain Malik played by Mickey Rourke.

There is non stop action and if you abbreviate non stop action you get NO action which is more to the point. Automatic rifles appear in almost every third scene and both the good guys and the bad guys have to be the worst sharp shooters on the planet. The director has a tendency to raise the volume when the guns are a blazing most likely to remind his audience to pay attention to his film.

The acting is abysmal but I blame it more on the script which calls for endless gun battles that look more like a bunch of kids playing gangsters in their school playground. The background music I assume was also intended to add suspense and maybe it would have if the editor did not insist on using it whenever the automatic rifles were not flailing away.

Kellan Lutz stars in the film and instead of having his stage name as Jake Wilde I would have suggested he use the name James Boring because that is how he portrayed the action hero in Java Heat. I suggest you stay away from this film unless you want to see some good photography based on the scenery where the film was shot.

I give the film a 2 out of 10 rating.

Locations are interesting

I saw most of this film the other night on cable. Lots of guns and shooting and killing. For me the most interesting part was that it was filmed in and around Yogyakarta since I was just there a couple of weeks ago. So it was fun to see locations where I have just been.

But frankly I can't understand how they got permission to film at Borobudur - a UNESCO World Heritage site. A place of such peace being used as the backdrop for gun play seems quite strange to me.

Mickey Rourke's accent seems to go from French to German back to French. I agree it didn't make sense. The plot is fairly convoluted. But I don't suppose people watch these kinds of films expecting Citizen Kane. Kellan Lutz's nude scene was gratuitous (not that I am complaining...)
