I like the ending..."how repudiating one’s true nature can only lead to catastrophe." Its so true.

Very good review. It's spot on. Although, I think Mann deserves an A+ for this movie as an unchartered style of a cops and robbers genre. In the same sense that "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" was an unchartered style of the western.
Mann began to explore this type of genre with his movie "Thief" and mastered his vision with Heat. It's a true original vision of a movie and it was the last great acting role for Robert DeNiro. His portrayel of a professional theif could not have been done better and will never be duplicated.
Michael Mann created a masterpiece that largely went unsung.
