I've always thought a movie could be made about the making of a movie, cos there are so many movies with bizarre goings on behind the cameras and this just another of those & it's a wonder anything coherent was made, with supposedly almost everyone brought on to direct not lasting long & being fired, cast & crew falling out & not talking & actors dropping out, Patrick Swayze was originally supposed to play Cash, Though I think they hit pay dirt with Kurt Russell. Who is cast perfectly as Cash. This is an enjoyable action comedy that works, with the right amount of action & humour thrown together. It seems to be one of those films that gets forgotten & I don't know quite why as its a perfectly decent film. The film centres on Tango (Stallone) & Cash (Russell) the best cops in town, who get set up for a murder they didn't commit by Drugs kingping (Jack Palance) & are then sent to Jail, where they escape, intending to clear their names. The one let down with the movie is the cheap synth score that is clearly an 80 throwback. I wonder if they were trying for Bevery Hills Cop feel to the movie As it feels like they might be trying to recreate that feel with the humour & action & the music mix. There is a decent story & good action sequences too & doesn't feel like it should be some direct to dvd film. So I'm giving it 4 out of 5

Looking at the trivia while watching this team you can see why this movie which had good elements fell apart swapping directors producers writers never has a good outcome.

You can tell they tried to emulate the buddy cop success of lethal weapon and infuse with the synth sounds of Beverly Hills Cop. Two superior movies of the 80's which deserve a classic status.

It's not a bad movie per say. Both Stallone and Russell acquit themselves admirably. But Stallone wasn't in the best phase of his career. I wouldn't put this in the best movies list by Russell (Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Tombstone , Stargate) or Stallone (Rocky, Rocky Balboa, Demolition Man, Cliffhanger, First Blood)

Interesting to a bunch of familiar 80/90ss faces. Teri Hatcher in this Before her run On Lois and Clark. Jack Palance was big in City Slickers and Batman. A bunch of character actors like James Hong, Brion James, Marc Alaimo ( gul dukat from ds9!) Clint howard ( Ron Howard's brother!). Hell even Kurt Russell dad bing Howard had a part.

Its truly a nonsense story. framed, in court sentenced in two weeks?!?! A villain with worst cockney accent since Dick Van Dyke it's full on cheese and you'll cringe at the way things looked back then.

I'll never forget this movie because i had my first kiss in the cinema wiith a lovely girl from France. So it was nice catching up with this movie 20+ years later to see what i missed!

The Only reason why I am rating this film this low is the amount of cutting from the original cinema release to what we have here. It reminds of the old days when ITV and other channels would cut the film or do voice overs. I really don't understand in the world of digital download that films are edited so much, please bring back the original film uncut and back to the original version.

Brilliant. I love the chemistry between stallone and kurt russel. The plot is cheesy but brilliantly witty and funny at the same time. Good old cop movie.

Good to watch, plenty of action from start to finish, add in a lot of clever one liners and you have a good action film to simply sit back and enjoy.
