The movie was good all the way up to the final showdown. That is where everything started to go south. The use of a prototype armored and weponized SUV was just plain dumb. The relationship between Stallone's and Hatcher's characters was not believable. I think if the director would have put more thought into establishing a stronger connection between the two, the rescue at the end might have felt rewarding. Instead, it felt like two cops were going through a lot of trouble just to rescue an acquaintance, which unfortunately made it anticlimactic.
This is one of those movies you can tell clearly was a product of the 80s. Something about it just has that 80s vibe about it. Which is no bad thing for me though.
Tango and Cash is a 1989 action/buddy-cop movie that deals with two police officers, Ray Tango and Gabe Cash (Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell, respectively), who are great at what they do. Unfortunately for one drug lord, TOO great as the two separately have cost him millions each. To protect his empire and those who have interests in it, Tango and Cash are both (all the while unknown to the other) lured to the same location where they are then framed for the murder of an FBI agent. Found guilty by several corrupt officials, the two are sentenced to 18 months and are instead of sent to a far rougher prison than they were expecting. The two then escape and must find out who has framed them and prove their innocence.
Watching it, it's immediate it was never going to be an Oscar contender for best...
Russell....Stallone...80's action...no brainer. I used to adore this movie when I was younger and I found out recently that I still do. It's insane in a way but a good meshing of buddy cop and action with a bit of humor here and there. Soldier and Rocky come together well and are a good pair. The best part, though, is Jack Palance as the quintessential bad guy who can't just put a bullet in their heads but needs to make things overly elaborate to try and exact some sort of revenge for having broken up his cartel of whatever it is he is cartelling. Good times ensue with the whole "clear your names in 24 hours" routine and...watch to find out! Spoiler alert: spoilers.
Great action, great 80's-ness, why not.
