Entertaining enough buddy-cop movie has some fun action scenes (the bus chase sequence was great). Only thing holding it back was the pairing of Schwarzenegger and Belushi never quite worked for me. Still a good flick from Walter Hill, though not sure it ranks all that high compared with others from the era. **3.5/5**
Review By: JPV852

Look out Chicago, Arnie & Jimmy are loose on the streets.

Captain Ivan Danko (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a no nonsense Soviet cop who is sent to Chicago to pick up a murdering Russian drug dealer. Upon arriving in the windy city, Danko is teamed with Art Ridzik (James Belushi), a wise-cracking street cop notorious for cutting corners to get the job done. Complete polar opposites, both men form an unlikely alliance as Danko’s Soviet methods blend with Ridzik’s free spirited street wise techniques.

There were quite a few buddy buddy films around in the 1980s, certainly the teaming of unlikely cop partners was nothing new at the time of Red Heat’s release. Yet for all it’s obvious reliance on clichés, and its out dated Russian/American guffaws, Red Heat is a romping, violent and funny picture. Pairing the big Austrian Oak Schwarzenegger with the Americana that is James Belushi pays off in bundles. Yes it’s sometimes crass, but Belushi’s cocky mannerisms play off Schwarzenegger’s robotic frame with comedic joy. All played out in amongst carnage and murder created by director Walter Hill, who is quite frankly, and thankfully, just extending the formula that he started in 1982 with 48 Hrs.

The support cast is not to be sniffed at either. Peter Boyle, Ed O’Ross, Laurence Fishburne, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Brion James and Gina Gershon. All line up to add fuel to the Arnie and Jimmy fire. Also good to see is that Hill shot on location in Illinois and Moscow to give the film some scenic impetus, whilst James Horner’s score is suitably bombastic and at one with the material. It’s no rocket scientist who observes a film like this and calls it popcorn fodder, because it so obviously is. But within its buddy buddy framework lies a very quotable film that’s essential for fans of Arnie & Jimmy. Sometimes that’s all one needs from a film like this. 7/10

Review By: John Chard
So what if it’s a cliche
It’s a fun action-comedy and that’s that! You can make all the arguments you want. This is definitely not for the discerning viewer. Maybe I’m just easily satisfied by the buddy cop genre. Plus, I love Arnold Schwarzenegger’s movies, in general. His action scenes are always fun to watch, and he always seems to come up with great one-liners. In this case, he spouts out a few dryly humorous lines as his stonefaced Russian character. Jim Belushi provides most of the laughs, though, as his unorthodox partner. They both do a good job, though Arnold’s Russian accent seems quite strained. Then again, as the film heats up, you really don’t pay attention to details like that. Also look out for the beautiful Gena Gershon in an early performance. Those in the mood for “Henry V” should definitely steer clear. Those in the mood for mindless buddy cop fluff that’ll keep you excited and keep you laughing should check this movie out.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

Who is Dirty Harry?…
Well, this is indeed a classic Schwarzenegger movie, no doubt about it. And it is actually a movie that proves to be timeless, as you can watch it again and again.

The storyline is good and director Walter Hill picks up the pace from the very beginning and doesn’t really take his foot off of the speed pedal throughout the movie. And that is a good thing, because the audience is in for an action ride here, as was the tendency with the 80s action movies starring Schwarzenegger.

Needless to say that there is an abundance of action throughout the course of “Red Heat”.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is superb in the role of Ivan Danko, and his accent is just glorious for the role. Jim Belushi actually fits the role of Art Ridzik, an American police officer tired of his job, worn down and just lashing out at the world; he has that particular quality to his demeanor. And that brings us to Ed O’Ross, in the role of Viktor Rostavili, because he fits that archetypical type of bad guy so well and really had that gritty look to him.

Now, you might want to put your sense of realism on the shelf before you sit down and watch “Red Heat”, because that is not the main focus of the movie. You know what you get here, Schwarzenegger facing insurmountable odds and coming out on top – the same formula used in all of his action movies, essentially. But hey, it was good entertainment, and that is all that matter.

But while “Red Heat” is not the defining movie of Schwarzenegger’s movie career, it is definitely one of the more memorable and outstanding movies.

I am rating “Red Heat” seven out of ten stars. I grew up on Schwarzenegger’s movies and the 1988 movie “Red Heat” is still as entertaining and watchable in 2019 as it was back in 1988.
