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?

Okay, so maybe ‘classic’ is a little generous to describe Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell’s collaboration ‘Tango and Cash,’ but just because it isn’t up there with ‘The Godfather’ doesn’t mean that it isn’t a whole load of daft fun. Our two action heroes play the two titular characters – both ‘hero’ cops in L.A. who get framed by a mob boss for a crime they didn’t commit and have to then go about proving their innocence.

Stallone and Russell make it watchable as they’re both clearly enjoying themselves in their roles (special mention to Kurt when he dresses up in women’s clothes!) and that’s about all the film is good for. Jack Palance is the villain whose scenes seem to have been filmed after the filming and then just dropped in afterwards. He does his best to be menacing, but because he never properly interacts with our heroes, he seems almost a bit redundant.

You may have heard the phrase ‘suspend your disbelief.’ Well, this is one film where, if you’re to get anything out of it at all, you have to do just that. Nothing really makes sense if you scrutinise it. The story bounces from one action-packed ridiculous scene to the next with no real explanation for what has gone on in order to get our protagonists to that stage. It almost feels like a computer game where you’re watching one stand-alone level after the next.

I enjoyed ‘Tango and Cash,’ but I’m quite aware that some people will find it too ridiculous to appreciate. When I watched it, my group were laughing at just how bizarre and totally stupid things were getting.

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.
