North Hollywood Shootout

I always thought the movie is based on this North Hollywood shootout and on the story leading up to it (because there are definitely similarities), but this shootout happened in 1997 (2 years after HEAT came out).  If you haven’t seen the 1995 movie HEAT, it’s seriously one of the best movies of all time.

One of the most intense and well documented stories I’ve ever heard.  Wild that after all those rounds exchanged, the only two deaths were the robbers.
