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.
