** The level of training and realism is so impressive that [[http://imgur.com/gallery/n0zDj3t Chris' mid-firefight reload]] is often shown to ''United States Marines'' as an example of a flawless tactical reload.
*** Not surprising, considering that MichaelMann consistently uses former Special Forces operatives like [[http://mickgould.net/about-mick/ Mick Gould]] as instructors on his movies.

** People hunt down the eatery just to sit in that booth.

* The armored car robbery is also just as much as CrowningMomentOfAwesome as it is an EstablishingCharacterMoment for each member of the crew.

** What really sold the sequence was the audio, which sounds like no other cinematic gunfight. None of the gunshots were added in post. Instead, the sound was captured live during filming with carefully placed microphones.

* The bank robbery sequence. The most believable, most intense cops-and-robbers shootout committed to film. When a ''real'' bank robbery in L.A. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Hollywood_shootout happened a few years later]], nearby citizenry thought someone was filming a ''Heat'' sequel.

* The famous coffee scene. Not only is is a Crowning Moment for the movie and cinema in a meta sense (as it's the first time Al Pacino and Robert De Niro ever shared the screen in the same scene in a movie), but also for the characters in the movie; in a film which isn't without its bombastic and grand moments of awesome, it's strangely fitting that its most compelling moment should be a simple, quiet scene where two protagonists share a coffee, have a pleasant conversation and discovering that, despite the fact that they work on polar opposite sides of the law, they're [[NotSoDifferent two similar guys]] [[WorthyOpponent who actually kind of like each other.]]
