Red Heat


Slam-bang director Walter Hill recycles his 48 Hrs buddy blueprint, swapping black-meets-white for East-meets-West. You know the drill: Arnold Schwarzenegger's reticent Russian and James Belushi's gobshite Chicago cop go on the hunt for a murderous drug runner, finding plenty of time for chases and gun battles while doing their bit for Glasnost.


Forget the politics (Hill certainly does). With Belushi cracking wise and Arnie cracking skulls, this high concept mix of dumb humour and smart action is `80s entertainment wrapped up and ready to go.
