The Heat

Movie • 2013 • Action  

Report
Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: Buddies.
This movie contains 28 potentially triggering events.

I don't think there are any children in the movie. If there are, they're not prominent. However, one of the main characters was a foster kid who, quote, "grew up with a lot of kids", and she realises that that's affected her emotions/personality somewhat negatively. I don't think we're told why she became a foster kid.

The plot revolves around drug trade. We see someone smoking a joint. I'm pretty sure we see some cocaine and maybe other drugs, but I don't remember anyone being shown using anything but weed.

We see people being super wasted in one scene (to the degree that one of them feels sick at one point and has forgotten large parts of the night by the next day), but I'm not sure there's what I would personally call "abuse" in the movie. I may be wrong, though, 'cause my memory sucks.

While flipping through tv channels, a cartoon is shown of a throat being cut into. While getting drunk at a bar, Ashburn cuts her hand on a piece of glass after accidentally smashing a glass. After a man starts choking in a restaurant, his throat is graphically cut into.

Someone chokes on a piece of pancake. The piece comes out after a while (and a useless botched tracheotomy), and he doesn't die, but the situation looks dire for a good while. Gurgling, lots of blood.

Hale slides some photographs to Ashburn, which are shown to be pictures of amputated limbs. The photos are seen again (though not closeup) when Ashburn lays them down on a table in front of Rojas, and again when Ashburn holds them up to Mullins' face when Ashburn confronts her in a bar.

No, but we see someone being shot in the head, and there's a blood spray. We see it from a distance, and the camera angle shifts away a split second later. Later on, we see a dead man with a bullet hole in his forehead - he's been dead for a while, so he's very pale, and the hole is almost black.

Hmm, possibly... I'm answering yes because on more than one occasion, someone twists someone else's finger(s) and/or hand or wrist to the point that something breaks (audibly). Unfortunately, though, I'm not sure if fingers are actually harmed or not, since I wasn't paying enough attention.

(As an aside, they didn't mean to drop him; they were threatening him by holding him over the balcony by his feet, and then it turned out they couldn't hold on, much less pull him back in. It's played for laughs, and right after he lands, he exclaims bitterly when he realises that the vehicle he landed on, which created a huge dent in the hood, is his own.)

A man is caught red-handed about to buy a sex worker's services. The person who caught him looks in his wallet and sees a photo of his wife and kids, and calls the wife from his phone, telling her what just happened. We understand from the part of the phone conversation that we hear that the wife reacts with anger (we never meet her), and we learn that he's done it before. What's really disgusting is that he tries to gain the (female) "catcher"'s sympathy by saying that his wife has just given birth again, so "it's a mess down there"... so who can blame him, right? Yuck. >:(

Very much so. The main characters - an FBI agent and a cop (both white females) - are the protagonists, the badass heroes, the good guys that we're supposed to empathise with and like and root for... even though they, especially the cop, totally abuse their positions of authority and break lots of rules, treating people much worse (physically, psychologically and verbally) in the course of duty than they're allowed to. We even see the cop receiving an honour plaque at a ceremony at the end of the movie.

A man's albinism is made fun of throughout the movie. The two white cop protagonists do a lot of police brutality, particularly towards a black man. In one instance, one of the cops throws a watermelon at the black man and agrees with him that it was a racist act.
