This movie proves that communism is more effective than capitalism (by OptikRed)
This is one of the best action movies created during the cold war era. Red Heat is one of the few movies to show the Soviet Union in a positive light. I liked this movie because it showed how the soviet system was much more effective.
"Red Heat" is White Hot!!! (by zardoz-13)
Writer & director Walter Hill did what all good filmmakers have done at some point in their careers. He recycled some situations from his earlier works, and his post-Cold War thriller "Red Heat" constitutes the result. This police procedural, buddy picture borrows notions from earlier Hill movies such as "The Driver" starring Ryan O'Neal and "48 HRS," co-starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Basically, muscle-bound, bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger is appropriately cast as a hard-boiled Soviet cop, Captain Ivan Danko, who is dispatched by his Moscow <more>
superiors to retrieve a Russian citizen who has been arrested for running a red light in Chicago, Illinois. The irony is the wicked Viktor Rostavili has struck a deal to purchase five million dollars in heroin and smuggle the narcotics back to Mother Russia. This part of the screenplay by Hill, along with "Bullitt" scribe Harry Kleiner, and "Kelly's Heroes" scripter Troy Martin Kennedy, relies on the standard-issue plot about one cop being sent to a faraway place to retrieve a prisoner and escort the felon back to his jurisdiction. Don Siegel's "Coogan's Bluff" put Clint Eastwood in a similar situation, while the John Wayne thriller "Brannigan" put the Duke in an extradition fueled plot.Eventually, our 'fish-out-of-water' hero, Captain Danko Arnold Schwarzenegger 0f "The Terminator" , teams up with a tenacious but trouble-prone Windy City cop, Detective Sergeant Art Ridzik James Belushi , who yearns for payback. Not only did Danko lose a partner back in Soviet Union during his pursuit of Vicktor, but also Ridzik loses his own partner, Detective Sergeant Gallagher Richard Bright of "The Getaway" , as Danko is poised to board the plane with Rostavili. Out of nowhere, a group of bald African-Americans know as 'clean heads' disguised as armored car guards surprise Danko, beat him into submission, and release Vicktor. They murder Gallagher during this sudden, blitz encounter. Meantime, Danko discovers a key that Rostavili had to a bus station locker. Danko musters his strength after the ambush to drag himself across the floor and seize the key. Like a similar key in "The Driver," Vicktor's key opens a bus station locker that contains his loot. Diagnosed with a concussion, Danko doesn't let his cracked skull or two obnoxious Soviet diplomats spook him about his loss of Rostavili. Of course, Danko shouldn't have been packing iron, but he brought along a piece anyway and got it through customs in the diplomatic immunity bag. Ridnzik and he set out to find the evil Rostavili, and they talk to a woman, Cat Manzetti Gina Gershon of "Showgirls" , who married Victor for $10 thousand. Manzetti has a bad habit of turning up at the wrong time in their investigation. She is in the Chicago Hospital where one of Vicktor's gunsels is being treated for serious gunshot wounds inflicted by Ridzik. Vicktor dispatches a man dressed as a nurse to inject a bubble into the wounded man to kill him. Our heroes blast this ill-fated nurse into the next world, and Danko lets Manzetti escape. Danko has to relinquish his automatic, but Ridzik loans him a .44 Magnum revolver.Director Walter Hill has fashioned one of the best testosterone-laden, guy movies with "Red Heat." Neither Danko nor Vicktor is willing to back down from each other. The shoot-out in the Garvin Hotel when Vicktor sends the 'Cleanhead' gangsters into the wrong room after Danko is bloody. The outrageous finale when Danko and Rostvavili charge each other in passenger buses makes for a spectacular, slam-bang showdown. Danko is the ultimate, irrepressible, hard-boiled cop. Nothing stops Danko from nailing Vicktor, and Vicktor is a thoroughgoing dastard. Ed O'Ross makes a memorable villain. Incidentally, the initial confrontation between Vicktor and Danko reminded me of Nick Nolte's Texas Ranger in "Extreme Prejudice" meeting the pot-growing rednecks at the bar. "Red Heat" lives up to its name.
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 <more>
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.10/10 Score: A Studio: Carolco Pictures StudioCanal, TriStar Pictures Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Belushi, Peter Boyle, Ed O'Ross, Laurence Fishburne, Gina Gershon, Brion James Director Walter Hill Producers: Walter Hill, Gordon Carroll, Mario Kassar, Andrew G. Vajna Screenplay: Walter Hill, Harry Kleiner, Troy Kennedy Martin Story by Walter Hill Rated: R Running Time: 1 Hr. 44 Mins. Budget: $29,000,000 Box Office: $34,994,648
A highly entertaining film that stars Anrold Schwarzanagger as tough and dutiful Russian cop Ivan Danko and James Belushi as the undisciplined passionate American cop Art Ridzik. Ed O'Ross is great as the evil drug running Viktor Rosta who escapes to America after Danko busts him in Russia. Danko follows Rosta to America where Commander Lou Donnelly The late Peter Boyle assigns Ridzik and his partner Sergeant Gallagher Richard Bright to help Danko out with his investigation. When Gallagher is killed by Rosta and his gang, Ridzik flies into a rage and decides to do things Danko's <more>
way-Shoot first and think later. With stalwart supporting performances from O'Ross, Boyle, and a younger Laurence Fishburne, and fine directing from Walter Hill, Red Heat is definitely recommended for all Arnie or Belushi fans. A previous comment stated that there were no good 1-liners in this film. That statement is incorrect. It's just that Arnold played the straight man, setting up Jim Belushi for the great lines. 9/10
Red Heat is brilliantly executed action goodness. (by oneguyrambling)
We need some pretty major differences to justify why it is so zany and unlikely that these guys should end up partners, let alone becoming *Sigh* friends.Well how about strait-laced regimented by the book Russian cop Vs slobby, disorganised "What's a book" American? And did I mention that for decades Americans and Russians HATED each other with a passion.And now these guys are partners? Wa-Heyyy. I think Americans actually watched only because they knew Schwarzenneger wasn't actually a Russian. Or maybe they thought he'd get shot? Whatever. Arnold Schwarzenegger is <more>
Russian cop Ivan Danko, and James Belushi is American cop Art Ritzig. When this was released Arnold's star was well on the rise, with Terminator, The Running Man, Commando and Predator already behind him, and Belushi wasn't well enough known to be annoying yet. Arnold nabs a nasty drug dealing murderer in Russia after a lengthy operation that costs Arnold a friend and the naughty Russian sounds like a drink his brother.The naughty Russian, named Viktor Rostavilli Viktor from now on flees to the United States to broker an even bigger drug deal, only he is nabbed on a trivial crime and held for extradition. The Russian bigwigs hand pick Danko to go and personally escort him back.In the States, specifically Chicago, Ritzig is given the shitty assignment of ferrying Danko around to make sure things go smoothly, which simply can't happen or we wouldn't have a movie right?So, in order:* Viktor escapes with the help of a drug syndicate called the Cleanheads.* Danko secures a key that is vital to the drug deal.* Viktor wants the key. Danko wants Viktor.* The Chicago police are content initially to let Danko stomp around Chicago trying to nab Viktor, thinking he will do their work for them and keep Ritzig out of their hair for a while Of course Danko and Ritzig end up spending half the movie shooting at, and chasing bad guys all over Chicago, destroying much of the background scenery in the process.The strength of Red Heat over say Commando, is that Danko is not a wisecracking superhero, he is an efficient by the book cop, playing the straight man to much of Ritzig's rambling and sarcasm. The two have many exchanges that are amusing for the fact that they aren't usually on the same wavelength, Danko can't seem to grasp what Ritzig is either worried about or trying to say, and Ritzig can't understand why Danko doesn't think more like him, as do all Americans . There is "Rush Hour" level marginally racist banter that runs back and forth, and the differences in the two cultures are highlighted again and again for comic relief and contrast, though never too much so that someone might get offended. In all the movie is actually quite funny, Danko gets his straight lines right so they are humorous and Belushi proves he can be funny, something that several seasons of According to Jim seems to dispute.The action scenes are great, guys point guns and shoot instead of triple backflipping on rollerblades while throwing ninja stars. Or whatever is deemed "cool" at present, right now it seems to be the building jumping thing called parcourt, a couple years ago it was C4 explosives etc. So we get the satisfying sight of watching the bad guys get shot, falling over and dying, always good when the purpose of the movie is to kill bad guys.The supporting cast is brilliant, this was the day when the filmmakers didn't just settle for "it" stars reality TV actors, various Kardashians and chose career actors, hence we get Peter Boyle and Laurence don't call me Larry Fishburne as cops, Gina Gershon as a women caught up in between and multiple other "oh it's that guy" bit parts. Best of all is Ed O'Ross as Viktor, he is a genuinely menacing bad guy, and because he doesn't ham it up or try to stand out he a great nemesis for Danko, he also has an accent so genuine that you wouldn't know he is actually an American actor. Although since I have seen this film recently I actually recognised him in a couple of other 80s films, from memory The Hidden and Another 48 Hours.Final Rating – 9 / 10. All the classic ingredients are here. A mismatched duo, a real bad guy, and the right mix of action and humour. Red Heat is the sh*t, and has been severely underrated over the years in favour of your Lethal Weapons and countless imitators.If you liked this review or even if you didn't check out oneguyrambling.com
Here's a pretty decent action picture of the 1980's that doesn't disappoint fans of the genre. "Red Heat" team up Walter Hill, Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Belushi on a plot about a Soviet captain Arnold and an American cop Belushi whose task is to arrest a violent drug dealer Ed O'Ross that came all the way from Russia to Chicago, after killing a cop, friend of Schwarzenegger.So,here's a buddy movie where two opposite forces join each other in order to achieve their common goal and catch the bad guy, back in the hard days of Cold War. Most of the film <more>
is about covering the strange partnership between the detective of the Capitalist nation and the tough captain that comes from the Comunist Russia, their cultural differences and different ways of treating their criminals, and the usual fights and shootings. A real fun to watch if you're not much demanding. Some might find silly or annoying the fact of seeing the Soviet cop always better,always smarter and always stronger than the American cop, who is more like a clown filled with unfunny jokes. Others might enjoy the fact of a simple action film foreseeing the collapse of the Communism, three years before the real act. And for a Walter Hill movie this was quite light, not much violent or not making it so impressively and filled with lots of dialogs.Part of our fun in watching "Red Heat" is seeing the Governator posing like a Russian officer, so superior but giving some funny moments.Cast also includes Peter Boyle, Gina Gershon, Laurence Fishburne, Richard Bright and Pruitt Taylor Vince, all in good supporting roles.Man, I miss movies like this. Those were the good days for watching such classics. 9/10
From the golden period of Schwarzenegger (by Ziya90)
The movie is a very good and stylish action, but such movies are not appreciated in comparison with the recent action movies which is pretty strange. For example, even the rating of awful Transporter 3 is higher than Red Heat. You probably know that critics hate Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Van Damme, also they hate action genre probably, so according to them, Schwarzenegger is an untalented muscle mass who can impress only children and his movies are shame. Schwarzenegger is not a Jack Lemmon or Sean Penn or Brad Pitt, but he has a pulling power and is great acting necessary for action <more>
movies? I ask this already asked question. By the way, I think that his performance in The Terminator 2 was outstanding. And as an action star, he is much better than new action stars. He made very bad movies yes, but everyone does that, doesn't? One of the criticisms of the critics is that he kills people, so the movie supports individual justice killing criminals instead of imprisoning etc. Well, most of action movies are like that, but they do not object, when it comes Tarantino movies or David Cronenberg movies like A History of Violence. Red Heat does not include a lot of action scenes, or action scenes are not 'big', but it is very stylish thanks to Walter Hill, one of my all time favorite directors and fun. There is a key scene, when I was a child, I used to become Arnold Schwarzenegger and do what he does in the scene. He was one of my childhood heroes. Those days and his films are pleasant memories for me. Returning to Red Heat, it is from Schwarzenegger's golden period. Today, they cannot make action movies like Red Heat.
Walter Hills Read Heat is quite similar to his earlier hit 48 hrs, sadly its not quite as good. Its not bad though, Swarzenegger and Belushi make quite a good pairing and the action is as good as you would expect from director Hill. Arnie and James have some funny lines and scenes together. I loved this when it first came out, but its not up to the standard of some of Arnolds other 80's films like The Terminator and Predator, it is however superior to The Running Man and Raw Deal. Arnolds dead pan delivery makes his performance as close to The Terminator as its possible to be. James <more>
Belushi is quite a good actor but seems to live in the shadow of his late, great brother John. His most famous film outwith this one is probably K-9, which actually is terrible. He is funny in a small role in Trading Places though. The action scenes are pretty over the top in Red Heat especially the opening scene where Arnie has a fight which starts in a sauna and ends up in the snow. Entertaining stuff, look out for Laurence Fishbourne of The Matrix fame in a earlyish role. ***6/10***
Go and kiss your mothers behind...... (by FlashCallahan)
Arne hit his peak in the eighties with Prdator, and although this is still a cracking movie, he appears to take a step back with this film.For the majority of the film, he's on autopilot, almost like his performance in the Terminator, but with more repeats of certain words like 'yes' and 'no', which in the context, is quite funny with the narrative, but it's too easy for him.Story is not too dissimilar to various other films released this decade, bad guy does something with drugs, kills the main characters partner, main character joins forces with someone the total <more>
opposite to him, and so on and so on.Andon to Belushi, who puts in his greatest performance, and steals the movie away from everyone else, and not many can do this with Schwarzenegger. Whenever Belushi is on screen, the film springs to life, and it turns from an average cop movie, to something a little bit more special.The rt of the cast are okay, and Hill has made this a really old school movie, there's no real standout scenes, apart from a bus chase, and a gender confused nurse, it just tells a straightforward narrative, but with added xenophobia.A good thriller, but I can understand the low score.
