Twists and turns abound in the David Mamet thriller Heist. Sporting a solid 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Warner Bros. has done a nice job making sure this image is clear of any excessive hindrances or imperfections. The colors all look bright and bustling with the black levels spot-on. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and French. This Dolby 5.1 soundtrack is mixed very evenly, though it is mainly filtered through the front and center speakers. While this soundtrack may not be as aggressive or bombastic as other action movies, it is engagingly crisp with Mamet's unique brand of dialogue. Also included on this disc are English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Sadly, the only extra features to be found on this disc are a few measly filmographies on the cast and crew, plus a single theatrical trailer for the film.
