Product Description

Amazon.ca

Another action flick from an unlikely source (wildly inconsistent Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky), buddy movie Tango & Cash teams Sly Stallone and Kurt Russell as bullet-dodging cops who get on each others' nerves while uniting against a slimy French drug kingpin (Jack Palance). Violent, profane, and packed with implausibilities, this is one of those big-budget, stunt-laden affairs that gets by on the charisma of its stars, and they almost pull it off. Tango & Cash was Stallone's first attempt to share the spotlight with another hero, and he's casually laid-back in his change-of-pace role (well, OK, it's not that change-of-pace), while Russell is equally enjoyable as Sly's well-coifed sidekick. Ridiculous all the way, this one is entertaining if only as a virtual catalog of action-movie clichés.--Jeff Shannon

"Tango & Cash" is notable for being the last action movie to came out in the late 1980's. It is an fun, entertaining, mindless action movie that works, most of the time, thanks to Slyvester Stallone and Kurt Russell enjoyable performances. There is not much plot here but there is many funny moments and hilarious dialogue between Stallone and Russell. It was rumours that Stallone and Kussell hated working with eachother, since they are two different type of action stars during their era. The courtroom sequences is one of the funnier parts of the film and the sequences when Stallone and Russell escape from prison is the action highlight. Only towards the third act, the picture seems rushed to be truly finished. The production of the movie did have many problems during shooting, the film went overbudget, there was trouble with the original cinematographer and original director. You can see the flaws towards the end, but it doesn't stop you from enjoy this big budget trashy action movie with enough thrills and humour.

Blu-ray has an sharp anamoprhic Widescreen (2.35:1) 1080P transfer and an fine Dolby 5.1 TruHD Sound. The only extra is the original theatrical trailer, if you look closely. There is some scenes in the trailer are not in the final cut. "Tango & Cash" is a fun, guilty pleasure, action-trash from Hollywood. Panavision. Grade:B+ for the movie. Grade:A- for the Picture Quality. Grade:B+ for the Sound Quality.

I love this film! Its no acadamey award winning preformance from Stallone or Russel, but do you ever watch an action movie expecting that?
This film is about 2 cops who work opisote ends of the city and there considered the #1 cops at the time! Stallone plays a sharp dressed cop , and Russel is the laid back smartass more cheaply dressed cop of the other side, but both cops are busting alot of drug deals and its pissing the drug lord whos making it off! (Jack Palance)! So the drug lord sets up a meeting where he will frame LA's two best cops who have done so much damage to his buisness and frame them for murder and make sure there going to jail! But his plan is not to leave them there! Watch it and find out what happens from there on! Also starring a vary of familluer faces like "Terri Hatcher" and .... errr....recignisable faces! But this is a great combination of two of the best in this great action adventure! For the right price i'd say buy it, but i wouldnt pay too much! It has no extras worth noting or any hidden eggs! I'd recomend a rental if you've never seen it, as it does play on personal taste. And if your into explosians, action, a bit of voilence, and all blended in with some humoures antidotes, then this movie is for you!
Just too bad there no bonus material :(

Ah... nothin' like a good dumb actioner to make you appreciate the genre's better offerings! Tango & Cash™ delivers about twice as many snappy rejoinders & exchanges as the average Lethal Weapon™ flick, but they tend to be only about half as effective. Part of the reason is the back-&-forth patter between the heroes, which was a touch too much in many instances. Another problem is Stallone's delivery-- he's just not that good at delivering his lines in an effectively comedic manner! Of course, if you've ever seen Oscar™ or Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot™, you've probably noticed this already. Kurt Russell does a decent job of workin' out his end of the deal, though. And as always, Jack Palance brings out that infamous menacing attitude as the big arch-villain who throws everything he can at our two protagonists as they try to track him down. And what self-respecting hormone-driven male DIDN't take notice of Teri Hatcher in one of her more notable pre-Lois & Clark™ roles? Ooh, such wrong thoughts...
...Whoa, I slipped into the Twilight Zone™ there for a mome. But now I'm back! Um, what was I talkin' 'bout? Oh yeah, Tango & Cash™, right?
Yeah.
Anyway, this bad-boy has plenty of character actors to fill out the cast. You know, those guys you see every once in a while in a movie or TV eppie, but you don't know what their names are? Yeah, those guys! But aside from being glad the producers of this flick decided to give a few thespian undercarders some work, I was rather disappointed by this film's fatality count. I counted only twenty confirmed kills (talk about under-achievers!), with most of 'em happening in the last twenty minutes of the movie! All the really cool explosions & scenes of stuff blowin' up happen in the last twenty minutes, too! Oh well...

I bought this dvd for christmas and watched it for the first time in a while. Kurt Russell steals the show from his partner and if this movie starred anybody else, then it would have came out a lot worse than it did. Russeell is Gabe Cash and Stallone is Ray Tango, the two toughest and hardest cops in the city. They have done so much damage to the crime syndicate's income that Yves Perret(a brilliant Jack Palance)has to take matters into his own hand and get the duo off the streets. They get set up and end up in a maximum security prison only to discover that if they don't escape, their is no hope for survival. This movie really owes a debt of gratitude to Harold Faltermeyer, who uses all kinds of COOL beats in his score throughout the film and keeps the viewer interested. This movie could have been longer, but I won't complain considering the action films that are being made these days are really stupid!
