Tango and cash is another in the list of great buddy movies,and as usual its two guys who hate each other who have a united goal and end up great friends while killing and drawing blood from all manner of scum.

The movie stars stallone and kurt russell who are two cops from opposite sides of the city who are great at catching shipments of drugs,both are big headed and wise cracking and great at what they do and always want to outshine the other.

However a drug lord is annoyed at the pair of them and decides that if he gets them killed it will draw heat on him,but if he frames them for murder and drug dealings then they will lose respect and serve time in prison and maybe get killed by the criminals that tango and cash convicted.

Hence all of the drug lords plan comes to conviction as tango and cash head to jail and fight for their lives amidst some great jokes and puns and macho moments,the on screen chemistry between stallone and russell is good and all in all this is a feel good movie with blood and laughs.

An underrated and somewhat forgotten 80s testosterone fuelled cheesy action classic, best enjoyed with the sound turned up loud, beer and a pizza.Stallone and Russell work well as a team and there's lots of good action scenes and fighting. A great score from Harold Faltermeyer too. This film has never looked better on Blu-ray, naturally. A good solid transfer that noticeably improves over the DVD. There's a DTS HD audio track, and the video is an AVC encode and runs at an average of 20MB/s. The film is fully uncut. No special features apart from the trailer, sadly, but it's still a great buy if you're a fan of the genre. Buy it.

Tango & Cash is without doubt one of Stallone's best films. With great action, excellent soundtrack and more humour and one-liners than you could wave a stick at.
ie. Cash: "When we get out of here we can grab coffee and a Danish."
Tango: (with reference to his former money grabbing psycho of a wife) "I hate Danish."
Tango & Cash has it all.
Will there ever be a special edition DVD with a Stallone/Russell commentary track?

Ray Tango and Gabe Cash are two L.A. based cops who work in different precincts. They have seized millions of dollars of drugs and weapons that belong to Perret.

Realising that they have to be dealt with, Perret frames them. Sensing that the evidence against them is too overwhelming, their lawyers advise them to take a plea bargain, on the guarantee that they would be sent to a minimum security prison.

But Perret arranges for them to be sent to a hell hole and it's there that he plans to have them killed and make it appear that one of the men they sent there killed them.

One of the prison's officials, who is an old friend of Cash, tells them that they have to escape, which they do.

They then go out and try and find the man who framed them....

This is one of those movies that, if you saw it at the right age, it would stand the test of time, and still be as good as the first time you saw it.

I was thirteen when I first saw this, and it never gets boring, but one thing I have learnt in the twenty four years since its release, it's not a serious film, and it nearly verges on parody.

Russell upstages Stallone in this, and whilst both are very good, Russell's character is the most fun and interesting. He's the Riggs to Stallones Murtaugh, and this hereby lies the main problem, you cannot see this film without comparing it to Lethal Weapon, why, Russell and Gibson have the same wardrobe and haircut.

The action is good, and way over the top, and Palance is as pantomime as he was in Batman, but thankfully he's not in it that much to make it too hammy.

James has a ball as the awful cockney villain, and its your typical Summer movie, albeit released at the wrong time of the year.

Ah the 80's - what a time it was, and remember those great buddy cop movies? Well, if you liked those, you're going to be rather smitten with Tango and Cash, a cop duo who share the same goal, to rid LA of a rather annoying Perret, who takes in riddles and just generally annoys the boys.

Tango and Cash and well known in the state, and are well rewarded for their heroics to stop drug deals, and other crimes. When they annoy Yves - they didn't expect their whole world to be turned on it's side, and their lives to be in such danger. Tango is more lavish, loves his suits and playing the stock market, where as Cash is a fighter and doesn't really care for people who waste his time.

I love the camaraderie in this movie, even though they don't like each other, they find it in themselves to collaborate for the good of the city. I also though Terri Hacher's role as Katherine was a great start to her career, and the typical 80s styling of this movie made it fun. The jokes and dialogue between the pair is classic cop stuff, and reminds you of the good days of Glover/Gibson in Lethal Weapon.

This Blu-Ray is pretty good, you get a decent DTS HD audio track, and the video is pretty clear for it's age. The video is AVC and runs at a steady 20MB/s, which isn't too bad. There are no visible problems with the video quality - though some might find the grain annoying, it's actually because of the film, rather than the transfer. There are tons of subtitles on this too.

I'm not impressed with the extras, all they offer is the trailer, so this is definitely more for the die hard fan than the passer by. Personally I was hoping the 20th anniversary edition would have some interviews and other bits and bobs, but no.
