‘Java Heat’ Trailer Looks Like Super Generic Action with a Crazy Mickey Rourke

By  · Published on April 10th, 2013

A reckless American bad boy who doesn’t play by the rules? An exotic locale with a quip-delivering partner? Lots of bullets flying with little consequence? Java Heat has it all – including the cherry on top: Mickey Rourke being a crazy bad guy.

In the film, a terrorist attack leaves the Sultana of Indonesia dead and his daughter kidnapped. Jake (Kellan Lutz) struggles to produce complete sentences while trying to solve the case alongside Hashim (Ario Bayu) who doesn’t think Jake has enough clever comebacks to be a real policeman.

But seriously, you should watch the trailer just to try to understand why Lutz has trouble saying his lines. It’s baffling:

Even the title is perfect. It’s a parody that isn’t a parody.

Java Heat hits theaters May 10th.
