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

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 :(

3.0 out of 5 stars Best Worst Movie Ever! March 2 2004
Format:DVD
This movie is so bad, so stupid, that it's great. Where to start? Well, to begin with the acting. No one ever expects a movie headlined by Stallone and Russell to be a groundbreaking film. Nevertheless, their over the top cheesiness (especially Russell's) lends the film a sort of idiotic charm. Stallone's inane delivery of his lines will keep you captivated. Jack Palance even seems to up the cheese factor in his performance. Teri Hatcher is a highlight of the movie, playing Stallone's spunky sister. She plays the part of damsel in distress, but is also very clever and strong willed. (Who knew there would be a role-model for feminists in a film like this? I kid, I kid) The story is pretty cookie-cutter for an '80s action buddy film. You could almost transplant Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte into this film and it would just about have the same effect.
So, with a mediocre script and subpar acting, Tango & Cash could very well be a train wreck of a film (like any Seagal or Van Damme flick). It avoids this though, by being so tongue-in-cheek. Whether or not this is intentional can be debated. I only know that I can't help but watch this film every time it comes on!
So if you're looking for big, dumb fun, this is the flick for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dancin' And Dollars July 9 2002
Format:DVD
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars I miss the 80's Jan. 14 2004
Format:DVD
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!
