Red Heat ~ Red Heat


After scoring a hit with the Eddie Murphy-Nick Nolte cop thriller 48 Hours, director Walter Hill returned to the buddy formula with this half-ridiculous, half-invigorating action flick about humorless Russian cop Ivan Danko (Arnold Schwarzenegger). He follows a drug dealer from Moscow to Chicago, where he's matched up with city cop Art Ridzik (James Belushi), whose work ethic is considerably more relaxed. Most of the humor revolves around Danko's grumpy reaction to good ol' American capitalism, while Ridzik urges him to chill out. Red Heat is not bad as action comedies go, but only if you get into the absurd spirit of this predictable fare, in which the unlikely buddies get to wisecrack and act casually while mayhem erupts everywhere they go. Incidentally, Red Heat was the first American film allowed to shoot in Moscow's Red Square. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars great odd couple buddy cop movie(east vs west) Aug. 20 2007
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
if you like buddy cop movies,you should like this one.the film stars
Arnie as strait laced, no nonsense Moscow detective Captain Ivan
Danko,who must team up with loose cannon,goof ball,undisciplined
Chicago cop Sgt.Art Ridzik(James Belushi). i won't give away why they
have to team up.i'll let you watch the movie to find out yourself.these
two are about as mismatched a pair as possible.the movie is ripe with
misunderstandings and comedic moments owing to the different tactics
each employ on the case.Belushi and Arnie work great off each
other.this is really a fun movie.in my mind,it's better than that other
buddy movie "48 Hours" which pairs up Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy.if
you like that movie,i can't see how you would not like "Red Heat".one
of the elements that make this film work is the fact it takes place in
1988,where the political climate between Russia and the U.S was much
different than today.anyway,for me,"this movie is funny,action packed
and all around entertaining.i give "Red Heat" 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars James and Arnold, a daring duo Oct. 10 2004
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
A fun shoot-im-up with lots of good chase scenes and a few good plot twists. One of the things that make the movie is Arnold going around strait faced and like the terminator without the metal endoskeleton.
Thoroughly rotten bad guy and drug dealer Viktor Rostavile `Rosta' (Ed O'Toss) flees the USSR after encountering Capt. Ivan Danko `USSR State Police'. We find that he has big plans in Chicago where he plans to do a deal with Abdul Elijah `incarcerated Revolutionary political leader' (Brent Jennings). Abdul has an agenda of his own. Everyone's plans must be adjusted as Danko turns up in Chicago and teams up with Det. Sgt. Art Ridzik `Chicago Police Dept.' (James Belushi) to track down and retrieve Rosta.
In the process of tracking we meet all kinds of dangerous criminals and beautiful women. Ridzik almost gets killed because of his instant affinity with a blond wayward nurse; he is in for a surprise. We also have the obligatory vehicle chase scene with a different twist.
Aside from the main players there are quite a few recognizable character actors which add significantly the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars But it's a FUN "Heat"... May 31 2004
Ahh... nothin' like an over-the-top Schwarzenegger vehicle to get me over my 80s action flick D.T.s! And ya gotta admit, 'Red Heat' can be pretty hokey at times. Take Arnie's weird attempt at a Russian accent, for example. Except for switchin' his Vs with Ws like Chekov from 'Star Trek' (bet'cha ten-to-one Walter Koenig actually helped him out with his "accent"), he sounds pretty much the same as he always did... only with more of a monotone, if such a thing is possible. And his emoting of anger (the only emotion most of his characters seem capable of doing) is just as bad as ever. Needless to say, I love every campy moment of it!
Then there's Jim Belushi, the comedic side of this preposterous fish-out-of-water buddy-cop story as he plays the kinda character he does better than almost anybody: a wise-@$$ who's always got some kinda smart-aleck comeback for everything. Ya know, kinda like Bill Murray, except a bit beefier, thereby making him a more suitable action-film sidekick. Not only does he help the main man out by tracking down a Soviet drug dealer through the mean streets of Chicago, he also helps set up the smattering of culture-clash gags going throughout the movie for his stoic partner to knock down... and vice-versa. And just when ya thought all that 'glastnost' and 'perestroika' stuff wasn't gonna work out...
And what's an Arnie flick without a few hilariously implausible action scenes? They save the best for last here as both the bad guy and the good guys do a charter bus chase & game of 'chicken' through a seedy area of the windy city, with one of the buses meetin' up with a train. Warner Bros. would lift the latter part of this action sequence from this flick and do it a lot better in "The Fugitive" movie several years later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the ideal "Arnie movie" Jan. 5 2002
Ivan Danko (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a tough Moscow cop on the trail of Viktor Rostavili (Ed O'Ross) the drug dealer who killed his partner. When Viktor turns up in Chicago, having paid an American woman to marry him and being held by the local police on minor charges, Danko is sent to bring him back.
The Soviet government does not want to tell the Americans just how important a prisoner they have and so, unalerted to the danger, the Chicago cops arrange a casual handover and the rest of Viktor's gang manage to spring him. In the process, one of the two Chicago cops with Danko is killed and that leaves him and Art Ridzik (James Belushi) together on a mission. They have both lost a partner to Viktor and they want to get him.
Thrown into the mix is the inevitable element that both men are seen as unreliable by their superiors and that, while they start out with a lot of mutual suspicion, it turns into respect as they become buddies.
All of the above sounds pretty much the standard Hollywood cop story formula and that does not bode well but this movie wins on its execution and balance. It's very well edited with a constant but not overwhelming flow of action and a script that gives both Belushi and Schwarzenegger occasion to deliver moments of levity.
Both leads are well cast and they do a good job together and you can believe not just in the characters but in the way that they rub along together.
Despite the fact that parts of the movie were shot in Russia and Eastern Europe using local actors, the movie does not seem to move beyond a stereotyped view of the people and country. That is really just a small criticism though and the important thing is that this is one of the best buddy-cop movies around.
