Storyline

It is a very hot summer in the city as the well known detectives of the 87th Precinct investigate serial rapes and a mysterious homicide (which do not appear to be connected). The women getting raped appear to be raped by a rapist who has raped them earlier and who was not caught. Detective Eileen Burke, who is working together with detectives Carella, Meyer and Brown, goes undercover and pretends to be one of the women who was raped earlier in order to lure out the rapist. Her boyfriend, Det. Kling, is not happy with her assignment. Written by Blort

Possibly Erika Eleniak's best performance
21 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's a shame that "Heatwave" is not better known, because it is quite possibly the film where Erika Eleniak makes the transition from busty sex symbol to legitimate actress. Playing a cop whose anxiousness to prove her worth leads her to a traumatic experience, Eleniak disappears into the character almost completely. The same goes for the rest of the cast - they may not be very well-known, but they fit their characters. Written and directed in a very tight, economic (and admittedly "TV-ish", with lots of close-ups) style, the film is sometimes exciting (especially in a foot chase in the middle) and sometimes hard to watch (intentionally, due to the nature of the story). The only part of which the significance I still haven't completely figured out is a secondary murder/bigamy case that the detectives are investigating. Maybe it was just added to give more of a "documentary on the daily cop life" feel to the production. *** out of 4.
