Dead Heat is a 2002 crime comedy-drama film starring Kiefer Sutherland, Anthony LaPaglia, and Radha Mitchell. It is written and directed by Mark Malone.


A cop forced into retirement by ill health is persuaded by his brother to buy a race horse. It all goes a bit wrong when the horse is stolen by a local mob boss. He is chasing after a guy that took his "buy" money. Then he goes home and starts boozing it up until wife he is separated from comes over. Naturally the old ticker is ok to romp with the old lady.



The film used locations in Victoria, British Columbia and Vancouver, British Columbia. It was also Sutherland's last production before his famous show 24.

Awards and nominations[edit]

The film received two nominations in the DVD Exclusive Awards in 2003, one for Best Cinematography and for Kiefer Sutherland for Best Actor.[1]
