Figures ...
28 January 2004 | by (detroit) – See all my reviews

It figures that the ONLY person who reviewed this classic and hated it would be from florida. You probably saw it expecting a simple plot with flat humor and the ending spelled out for you eh? Sure the plot is simple but flat humor???

Delta Heat is (attention plz) NOT meant to be a serious drama. SHOCK! Granted that the actors playing the 2 local cops couldnt act their way out of a paper bag, but that is EXACTLY how they are meant to be portrayed.. as unsophisticated yokul bumpkins who take themselves way too seriously.

Henrickson and Edwards play off each other well enough to keep the movie both funny and interesting. As for the "obvious" latex forbes, have you ever seen someone who had massive third and fourth degree burns after "reconstructive" surgery? okay so he never blinked..big whoop. Maybe it was all the drugs he did in the 60's?

If you want a campy, fun cop 'drama' that makes for a good night of pretzels and beer consumption then rent this. If youre looking for serious art or award winning presentation go rent a Bergman film.
