Reviews


100
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Body Heat is good enough to make film noir play like we hadn't seen it before.
88
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
An excellent crime drama in the style of Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain, and Dashiell Hammett.
83
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Kasdan's moody tribute to cinema's dark past set a gold standard for neo-noirs that has seldom been equaled.
80
Film Threat - Unnamed
Aside from the over abundance of rather large glasses and sweaty actors, Body Heat succeeds fabulously, not only as an excellent example of a classic film noir but as a solidly executed production in its own right.

The New York Times - Janet Maslin
While Body Heat involves murder, fraud, a weak hero led astray and a seductive, double-dealing broad, it also incorporates something new: a sexual explicitness that the old films could only hint at.
