Heat

Neil (Robert DeNiro) was on his way to freedom with his 'girlfriend' Eady (Amy Brenneman) (whom he was really only using for companionship anyway). However, he gets a call on his cell phone from Nate (Jon Voight), who informs him that they've found the location of Waingro (Kevin Gage), the former member of his team that ruined the bank robbery (and escaped at the beginning of the movie) and betrayed them by helping Van Zant (William Fichtner) and killing Trejo (Danny Trejo). At first, Neil doesn't care about this, but after he hangs up and continues on his route to freedom, he can't get Waingro off his mind, so he decides to make a detour to the hotel and take care of him. However, this gives Vincent (Al Pacino) time to track him down, and they meet face-to-face as Neil is about to drive away. In his panic, Neil makes a run for it (leaving Eady abandoned in the car) and the two men have a shoot out near an airport runway. In Neil's haste, when he emerges to shoot Vincent, Vincent manages to spot his moving shadow and quickly turns to shoot him first. Neil then admits that Vincent was the better man and salutes him with a handshake, before slowly passing away.

Alan Marciano: Why'd I get mixed up with that bitch?
Vincent Hanna: Cause she's got a great ass. And you got your head...all the way up it. Ferocious, aren't I? When I think of asses...a woman's ass...something comes out of me.

More trivia for Heat

Question: In the scene right before the big bank heist, a detective comes into the situation room informing the team that a CI Hugh Benny had a tip about Neil McCauley looking at Far East National Bank. How the heck did Waingro (working for Benny and VanZandt) even know about this score? McCauley hadn't even discussed it with Kelso when Waingro took down the armored car.

Answer: Waingro helped Van Zandt track down Trejo. Waingro then tortured Trejo and threatened his family if he didn't give up McCauley. With his back to the wall, Trejo gave Waingro and Hugh Benny the details of the bank heist, but Waingro killed Trejo's family anyway and beat Trejo almost to death. Benny then gives the tip to the police on Van Zandt's order.

I wonder how Trejo was tracked, I don't remember his name being revealed during Waingro's time with the crew, or any other information.

Well, we never see the crew prior to their first heist. Trejo could have given Waingro his name during the planning of that heist.
