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

Ray Tango [Sylvester Stallone] and Gabe Cash [Kurt Russell] are rival L.A. policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them and they're like oil and water. But frame them for a crime and they're like a match and kerosene. Unjustly jailed among lowlifes they put behind bars, the two stages a prison breakout that's a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks then roar after the shadowy crime lord [Jack Palance] who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.

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.
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 :(
...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?
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...
