Red Heat (1988)

Red Heat (1988, USA) C-106m. ** D: Walter Hill. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Belushi, Peter Boyle, Ed O'Ross, Laurence Fishburne, Gina Gershon, Brent Jennings, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Brion James, Sven-Ole Thorsen. Arnie blockbuster where he plays a Russian policeman, who must cooperate with Americans in order to bring back a Russian drug dealer. His assigned partner Belushi is not very happy about the Russian's sledgehammer methods. Artificial story is offset by some explosive set-pieces and Belushi's funny lines, which make it entertaining to some degree. Director Hill coproduced and cowrote the screenplay. Score by James Horner.
