Look out Chicago, Arnie & Jimmy are loose on the streets.
Captain Ivan Danko (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a no nonsense Soviet cop who is sent to Chicago to pick up a murdering Russian drug dealer. Upon arriving in the windy city, Danko is teamed with Art Ridzik (James Belushi), a wise-cracking street cop notorious for cutting corners to get the job done. Complete polar opposites, both men form an unlikely alliance as Danko’s Soviet methods blend with Ridzik’s free spirited street wise techniques.
There were quite a few buddy buddy films around in the 1980s, certainly the teaming of unlikely cop partners was nothing new at the time of Red Heat’s release. Yet for all it’s obvious reliance on clichés, and its out dated Russian/American guffaws, Red Heat is a romping, violent and funny picture. Pairing the big Austrian Oak Schwarzenegger with the Americana that is James Belushi pays off in bundles. Yes it’s sometimes crass, but Belushi’s cocky mannerisms play off Schwarzenegger’s robotic frame with comedic joy. All played out in amongst carnage and murder created by director Walter Hill, who is quite frankly, and thankfully, just extending the formula that he started in 1982 with 48 Hrs.
The support cast is not to be sniffed at either. Peter Boyle, Ed O’Ross, Laurence Fishburne, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Brion James and Gina Gershon. All line up to add fuel to the Arnie and Jimmy fire. Also good to see is that Hill shot on location in Illinois and Moscow to give the film some scenic impetus, whilst James Horner’s score is suitably bombastic and at one with the material. It’s no rocket scientist who observes a film like this and calls it popcorn fodder, because it so obviously is. But within its buddy buddy framework lies a very quotable film that’s essential for fans of Arnie & Jimmy. Sometimes that’s all one needs from a film like this. 7/10
Entertaining enough buddy-cop movie has some fun action scenes (the bus chase sequence was great). Only thing holding it back was the pairing of Schwarzenegger and Belushi never quite worked for me. Still a good flick from Walter Hill, though not sure it ranks all that high compared with others from the era. **3.5/5**
Well done for a cop-buddy action film
This movie was excellent for it’s kind. Two good guys were thrown together in a dangerous situation of good vs. evil. The film’s title Red Heat refers to a war between cops and druglord’s in the former USSR and also Chicago. Arnold of course played the tough guy character and Jim plays the comedy relief. My favorite movie of it’s kind besides Bad Boys. I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of this type of film.
Good For What It Is
RED HEAT is yet another of those buddy movies from the 1980s . Cops set up a sting , the bad guy kills a cop during an escape , turns out that the dead cop is the hero’s best buddy and he’s going to stop at nothing to get the bad guy with all this happening in the first 15 minutes of the movie . If all this sounds similar to 48 HOURS that’s possibly because it was directed and co written by Walter Hill who also directed and co wrote the aforementioned movie . It might not be original in structure but it’s certainly entertaining due in no small part of the two protagonists – Serious communist cop from the Ukraine , wise cracking Chicago cop – playing off each other in a story that could have so often become predictable and boring due to its familiar plot . It’s hardly groundbreaking in concept but when a film made in 1988 starts hinting that gangsters from the Soviet Union will be taking charge of much of the black market in drugs , this alone gives it an edge missing in so many of its contemporaries
