I rented this movie because I'm a Kiefer Sutherland fan and I wasreally surprised! It's a really good story. It's cute, funny andoriginal. The actors deliver great performances! There is a love story,an action story and some good laughs. It's about Pally Lamar, an ex-copwhose a bit depressed. To get him back on track his step brotherproposes they buy a slow racing horse since Pally loves horses. Theymake this horse into a winner with the help of a unlucky gambler that'salso their horse's jockey. By doing this, they get the attention ofsome mafia bosses who want the horse. It's an original story definitelyworth watching. I definitely recommend it! I will give it an 8 becausethe plot can be a little far-fetched at times.

Heart problems force Boston cop Pally LaMarr to retire; he's in a funk and his wife Charlotte sends him packing. At Charlotte's insistence, Pally's half-brother Ray pays Pally a visit and suggests he buy a race horse to cheer up. Ray's always playing the angles, and he's got his eye on a horse that's cheap because it's been misdiagnosed. Ray knows the horse is a champion. Before they can win some money, a local mob boss, Frank Finnigan, sees the horse and steals it as payment for the gambling debt of Tony, a local jockey and single parent. Can Pally and Ray get the horse back, get Tony out of hock, and win some moola? What about Charlotte: can Pally let his heart take the lead?

I would have to say I liked this movie, No I am not a couch potato! ButI am a huge fan of Keifer Sutherland!! I happen to enjoy him in"different" roles!! He is one of a chosen few that can play "any"role!!! Seeing him in 24, may confuse people do the point that he playsit so well, and no one could play it better!! Even in small roles suchas "stand by me" or "taking lives" a small role but a huge impact!! Heis one of those actors that a movie can be dull but though he is in it,it is a movie worth watching!! I agree that Dead Heat does not have"blockbuster" written all over it but I understood the story line, Aman that had to give up his career due to a heart condition, then hegets a opportunity to live a life-long dream with of course someturbulence on the way, But in the end he got the girl actually 2 andlived happily ever after!!
In Boston, the thirty-five years old detective Pally LaMarr (KieferSutherland) has a heart attack while chasing a bandit, and is retired. Verydepressed, he is almost committing suicide, when his wife Charlotte LaMarr(the gorgeous Australian actress Radha Mitchell), of whom he is in themiddle of a process of divorce, calls his half-brother Ray LaMarr (AnthonyLa Paglia) to visit him. Ray is a small-time crook, and proposes the honestPolly to buy a horse per US$ 3,000.00. With a minor surgery and a suitablejockey, this horse would be a winner. Pally accepts, but Tony LaRoche (Lothaire Bluteau), the jockey invited by Ray, is an addicted gambler inprobation, having a debt of US$ 80,000.00 with the Mafia. Due to thisinvitation, Pally gets involved in many troubles. This movie has many upsand downs. When I think it will `take-off', it falls down. My impression isthat the director got lost between a comedy and an action / crime / thrillermovie. The result is not funny, there is no black humor and there is notmuch action. It may be a reasonable entertainment for a less exigent viewer.My vote is six.
