Tango & Cash Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P112464~Sylvester Stallone~sylvesterstallone]] tries his luck with his first cop buddy movie in Tango and Cash, directed by [[Performer~P97846~Andrei Konchalovsky~andreikonchalovsky]]. Stallone is Ray Tango, a Los Angeles narcotics cop who dresses in fancy suits, wears wire-rim glasses, and talks to his stockbroker more than he talks to his mother. [[Performer~P62232~Kurt Russell~kurtrussell]] is Gabriel Cash, another Los Angeles narcotics cop who has long, disheveled blonde hair and dresses in worn-out sweatshirts. Together, Tango and Cash are the two best narcs in LA, which causes drug baron Yves Perret ([[Performer~P54755~Jack Palance~jackpalance]]) no end of distress. Since Yves controls a billion-dollar drug empire, Tango and Cash have to be taken out of the picture in some way. So Yves arranges for Tango and Cash to be framed for a crime. But the duo accepts a plea bargain that will give them 18 months in a minimum-security prison. Unfortunately, Yves arranges for their destination to be diverted to a maximum-security hell-hole where Yves's minions proceed to torture Tango and Cash --although they still have time to trade quips with each other. Ultimately, they escape from their torture chamber and seek out Yves and his gang. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
