Red Heat Details


[[Performer~P110501~Arnold Schwarzenegger~arnoldschwarzenegger]] plays a taciturn law-enforcement officer from Russia. [[Performer~P81321~James Belushi~jamesbelushi]] co-stars as a wise-lipped Chicago cop. Though they go together like caviar and White Castles, they are forced to team up to collar the Soviet Union's most notorious drug lord. Thus does director [[Performer~P94395~Walter Hill~walterhill]] recycle his [[Feature~V266~48 Hours~48hrs]] formula for another unlikely star team. Unfortunately, Red Heat isn't half as enjoyable as the earlier film, owing to a lack of rapport between the two leading men and an overall lack of inspiration infecting the whole project. The one notable aspect of Red Heat is that it was the first commercial American film to stage scenes in Moscow's Red Square. Watch for [[Performer~P23625~Laurence Fishburne~laurencefishburne]] (still billed as "Larry") in a secondary role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
