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

This movie transferred excellently to Blu-ray. I was very impressed. And this movie is a great action/comedy for both of these stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The last great action movies of the 1980's. Oct. 16 2012
Format:Blu-ray
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stallone & Rusell - an explosive combination June 29 2004
Format:DVD
I must say I'm a big fan of detective movies, and '80 were great time for that kind of films (action comedies, adventures...). We already had LETHAL WEAPON in that time, but this film really pushed the limits. Critics often say that this is a B-movie, but that is what they think. For me, this is one of the best Stallone's movies and he and Rusell are really good together as two heavy cops alway aguing and having a lot of troubles with Jack Palance, leader of some terrorist organization who send them to prison where they will meet their doom. Of course, they will win and the rest is to you to be seen. Don't listen the others who didn't like it - give your own oppinion (possitive, I hope).

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun! May 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I have to agree with the majority of reviews posted so far regarding this flick. I saw it when it came out in theatres (with my dad; I was just a little kid) but this movie is so cheesy that it's laughable (in a good way) and a lot of fun to watch at the same time. Very adrenaline rushing, action pact destruction and pyrotechnics best define this movie as Stallone and Russle play two cops from the East and West side who cost the local drug lord big bucks by busting all of his drug deals, so he has them framed and sent to prison. They escape of course in order to clear their names and seek retribution. You could probobly find it on VHS for a few bucks at the local pawn shop.....just don't expect Shakespeare. Appriciate it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Action!! April 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Lots of action for gals (like me!), watchin Sly and Kurt's cute buns and hot bods running through this movie- also Terri Hatcher is great for the guys to see, she can act but not dance ha ha- lots of one-liner wisecracks and great second performances- Jack Palance as a hilarious chief villain, Geoffrey Lewis (who, incidentally, didn't get listed in the credits!)Clint Howard and more! As fine of a plot as one expects for an action flick, come on, its a MOVIE!! and a mighty FUN one, at that! Two L.A. cops, rivalling for headlines & high total of drug busts, and the bad guys that try to take them out! Not to mention lots of zany characters along the way- WHY can't hollywood make a Clive Cussler Novel like this? Funny, witty, lots of action, just like its written! as the Aussie villain puts it, "Balls to plan A!!" as a "B" movie, this one gets MY vote!! Hope you have fun watching it!:)

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie is not FUBAR at all! March 22 2004
Format:DVD
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 :(
