Buddy routine cop classic underrated 80's action flick!

Red Heat (1988) is American Bad Ass action film my favorite action classic childhood movie. Every time I see it I kept getting excited to see in it again. Red Heat is a buddy routine classic underrated action flick! I grew up with this film and I still love watching it today. Classic 80's action flick with Arnold doing his bad Russian accent and Belushi's hyper kinetics' acting. None the less they have good chemistry together and there's plenty of good one liners and action sequences to make this one very entertaining. Seeing the styles and fashions of the day is pretty funny and brings back lots of good memories from that period.

After The Running Man Arnold made Red Heat. At that time it was a quite good film but now the movie looks a little out dated. Between The Terminator and Raw Deal there is Schwarzenegger's Red Heat, the 1988 action peace which also co-stars Jim Belushi who provides the comic relief from the Director who gave us Eddie Murphy in 48 hrs. Red Heat is the typical 80's action cop genre picture Arnold entertained us with during the 80's. This also would mark his last 80's picture he would then be back in 1990's Total Recall and the phenomenal sequel Terminator 2 a year later. But back to this gem. Red Heat is one of Arnie's finest movies. Though not taken seriously by a lot of his fans and fans of the 80's movies. Both Belushi and Arnold deliver really fine performances that match each other well. Of course a very young Gina Gershon makes a little appearance. Still looking exactly the same as she does today. This is one of my favorite Arnold & Belushi movie. Also Gina Gershon and Laurence Fishburne are co staring in this film. Also I think Gina Gershon did terrific job in here she also co started in Steven Seagal's film Out For Justice (1991).

This film is very bashed and hated, I grew up with this film. I love that Arnold plays A Russian Cop who fly's in to the States to find and track down a ruthless criminal Viktor Rostavili (Ed O'Ross) to bring him back to Russia. I still think Red Heat is one of Walter Hill's best movies, his first film was 48 Hrs. (1982) with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. I love James Belushi as a street wise detective Art Ridzik. I love his sense of humor and his charm and his outstanding lines. I think he acted very well as Detective in here. The shootouts are a awesome. I love the action scenes especially the opening fight scene in the snow, the hotel shootout and the bus chase (which is one of the more creative ideas I have seen in an action movie chase scene). Another thing I really liked was the "Podbyrin 9.2mm pistol" since I have an interest in guns. Tim Lafrance who was also the armorer on "Miami Vice" built the gun for the film using parts from the famous Walther P-38 to beef up the Desert Eagle, since Walter Hill told him he wanted "A P-38 on steroids". The most funny scene for me is that guy comes to the car when Arnold sits in it and wants to carjack him so Ivan ask: "Do you know Miranda?" the hooligan answers back "Never heard of the bitch." pow, Ivan punches him unconscious. I love the music score by James Horner, he made a perfect music theme for the film.

The rating I am giving is 10/10 this movie deserves it.

Red Heat is a 1988 American buddy cop action film directed by Walter Hill. The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, as Moscow narc Ivan Danko, and James Belushi, as Chicago detective Art Ridzik. Finding themselves on the same case, Danko and Ridzik work as partners to catch a cunning and deadly Soviet Georgian drug kingpin, Viktor Rostavili (Ed O'Ross), who also happens to be the killer of Danko's previous partner back in Soviet Russia.

They don't make'em like this anymore...

Walter Hill is an underrated guy. He kind of single-handedly created the cop buddy genre with 48 hours and Red Heat. Arnie's best days are long gone (they probably ended with Twins and Total Recall), but here, he gets to shine, maybe because the character of Danko perfectly matches his sometimes "wooden" performance. It's definitely one of his strongest roles. Ed O'Ross is also brilliant as Danko's counterpart and although only has a few scenes, he owns them. Usually, he plays funnier characters (even in Moonlighting or Full Metal Jacket, his characters seem a bit tongue in cheek), but this is probably the strongest role I remember him in.

The movie oozes atmosphere. The rainy weather, the streets of Moscow(Budapest), the great soundtrack by James Horner...sure, it's a movie that has clichés and the story is nothing extraordinary, but the movie works well and is entertaining every time, even if you know what's going to happen. There's just something about basically making this kind of a Soviet affair in American land. Highly recommended.

So what if it's a cliche

It's a fun action-comedy and that's that! You can make all the arguments you want. This is definitely not for the discerning viewer. Maybe I'm just easily satisfied by the buddy cop genre. Plus, I love Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies, in general. His action scenes are always fun to watch, and he always seems to come up with great one-liners. In this case, he spouts out a few dryly humorous lines as his stonefaced Russian character. Jim Belushi provides most of the laughs, though, as his unorthodox partner. They both do a good job, though Arnold's Russian accent seems quite strained. Then again, as the film heats up, you really don't pay attention to details like that. Also look out for the beautiful Gena Gershon in an early performance. Those in the mood for "Henry V" should definitely steer clear. Those in the mood for mindless buddy cop fluff that'll keep you excited and keep you laughing should check this movie out.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
