3.0 out of 5 stars Go and kiss your mothers behind...., 24 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Red Heat [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Arnie hit his peak in the eighties with Predator, and although this is still a cracking movie, he appears to take a step back with this film.

For the majority of the film, he's on autopilot, almost like his performance in the Terminator, but with more repeats of certain words like 'yes' and 'no', which in the context, is quite funny with the narrative, but it's too easy for him.

Story is not too dissimilar to various other films released this decade, bad guy does something with drugs, kills the main characters partner, main character joins forces with someone the total opposite to him, and so on and so on.

And on to Belushi, who puts in his greatest performance, and steals the movie away from everyone else, and not many can do this with Schwarzenegger. Whenever Belushi is on screen, the film springs to life, and it turns from an average cop movie, to something a little bit more special.

The rest of the cast are okay, and Hill has made this a really old school movie, there's no real standout scenes, apart from a bus chase, and a gender confused nurse, it just tells a straightforward narrative, but with added xenophobia.

A good thriller, brilliant transfer...
