Watch while in theaters! At a time when relations between the West and Islam are dangerously tense, Java Heat opens amidst the aftermath of a terrorist attack in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim nation. Java Heat centers on Jake (Lutz), a reckless American tough guy who becomes embroiled in the turmoil ensuing the attacks, which killed the country’s much beloved Sultana. Jake is bent on vengeance but quickly finds the world a more complicated place than he can solve with violence alone. Lost among labyrinths of religious, political and cultural havoc, Jake must ally with cerebral Muslim detective Hashim (Ario Bayu), who handles Jake more like a suspect than a partner. The uneasy friendship leads to a treacherous man-hunt for the attack’s real instigator, a new breed of klepto-terrorist (Rourke), who is even more twisted and terrifying than the Jihadist terrorists he hides behind.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A better title for "Java Heat" might have been "Java Noise," since that is mostly what this uninvolving action film produces.
Rotten: The potential fun is all thoroughly undone, however, by an eye-roller of a script and a leaden lead performance from Twilight heartthrob Kellan Lutz.
Rotten: The film's anthropological interest in Indonesia is the smartest thing in an otherwise familiar scramble of kidnapped babes, expensive jewelry and millions of bullets.
Rotten: This otherwise generic '80s-style actioner benefits from the presence of the ever-colorful Mickey Rourke as an exotic villian.
Great action movie!
Mickey rourke is awesome in this and the action scenes are intense!!!
Awesome action film!!
Awesome action flick with a great message
Based on the poster I was expecting a pure action flick but the exotic scenery and deep storyline kept me intrigued throughout and the buddy cop style movie was pretty fun with a dynamic presence of action, comedy, and plenty of suspense. I'd definitely suggest Java Heat to viewers of all interest
