During the fight scene between Bannon and Waters, the editor used the exact same sequence from two different camera angles. In a close shot the actors take a few swings, then Waters connects knocking Bannon down, then the two start to wrestle on the ground. The exact same scene is shown from a mid-range shot. See more »

Lame but not among the worst
17 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some SyFy originals are tolerable, but most are bad to just terrible. Heastroke for me was not bad enough to be terrible, but it was an overall lame movie. The scenery is pretty good though, and while she has a very shallow character Danika McKellar is beautiful and quite appealing. However, the special effects look very fake, and are not helped by the choppy editing. The music is not awful as such, but is very forgettable within minutes of watching the film, and the direction has little sense of vitality. The script is often flat and too corny, while the characters are cardboard and shallow especially the villains and the story reads more of a series of encounters that are mostly predictable and stupid. The ending is contrived and unintentionally comical. Other than McKellar the rest of the acting doesn't make an impression. DB Sweeney struggles with a very clichéd role, and it is also one that requires more than his light leading man charisma, which makes him a bland lead really. Overall, I've seen worse, but Heatstroke for my tastes was lame. 3/10 Bethany Cox
