| Surprisingly Good, if a low budget and low quality.
I will start out by saying that I am a tad biased in that I have followed Brad Jones and friends through his escapades as The Cinema Snob, Midnight movies and the like, but however I think it says something when the biggest problem with Midnight Heat is the footage quality.

The acting is for the most part surprisingly good with, like the camera-work, a few flubs and bits of amateur work that pop in but quickly go away. The rough camera-work almost complements the gritty, dark feel that slowly develops over the course of the film although in the end it's something that could have been improved with a tripod... or better lighting. Almost all of the performances aside from Nick Foster and Alex Shryock were rather good, with Jake Norvell and Brad Jones in stand out roles.

Yes, it almost feel like it drags at times, and yes the budget does get in the way occasionally but it still did hit me at times. There were rather good shots, moments that worked rather well, like the rooftop scene between Rick Wilson and Martin with the storm clouds flashing lighting in the background (not added in later I might add), and it did leave me feeling something at the end.

It may look like ass from being filmed on Hi-8 tapes and being converted poorly to digital, the movie had a shoestring budget but the writing and characters managed to cut through all of that and deliver a sleazy, dark 80's style crime thriller about the people you'd meet and the things that happen late at night on the streets of big cities.
