Editorial Reviews

Cohen and Tate are two mafia hit men who don’t exactly hit it off. Cohen (Roy Scheider, Jaws) is an old pro, a cold-blooded killer who is all business. Tate (Adam Baldwin, Chuck) is a young hothead who kills for fun. Together they kidnap nine-year-old Travis Knight (Harley Cross, The Believers), an eyewitness to a recent mob rub-out. Now, they’ve got 24 hours to deliver him to Houston for interrogation and elimination. Realizing their mutual hatred is his only hope, Travis plays this lethal odd couple against one another. But when their volatile words explode into a fiery gun battle, he’s caught in the crossfire.

Format: VHS Tape
A taut, terrically filmed duel of wits between a little boy and two hired killers who kidnapped him. The film contains strong performances and gripping camerawork and editing. An underseen 80's classic that was completely ripped off by Elmore Leonard in his novel "KILLSHOT." A must see for Roy Schiedler's icy turn as a hired killer with a samurai streak of honor and Baldwin's frightening psychopathic partner. A reliably crack job of directing from Eric Red, of "THE HITCHER," "NEAR DARK" and "BODY PARTS."

For any fan of Adam Baldwin (Firefly fans I'm talking to you), Cohen and Tate is a thrilling romp that follows two mob hitmen as they try to deliver a young witness to their boss. Unfortunately for them, the kid's a conniving little snot who figures out how to play his captors against one another and does so with annoying dexterity.

Adam Baldwin gives a vicious performance as the hot-headed Tate, though a lot of his dialogue is badly dubbed over for content (despite the movie's R rating). Roy Scheider is ice-cold as Cohen, conceivable as a veteran killer suffering from hearing loss.

The movie as a whole isn't the greatest, but it's not so much the plot that drives this movie. The characters of Cohen and Tate, their conflicting natures and constitutions is what makes this movie worth your time. As the tension mounts, you can sense the characters' hatred for one another. When the movie reaches it's climax, you don't really care who gets killed but you really want someone to get it. One day I would love to see this movie released to DVD with Baldwin's original dialogue restored.

This is one cool thriller that takes place in the course of one night, Roy Scheider & Adam Baldwin are two hitman who are to bring back a kid who may have witnessed somthing he shouldn't have, it is clear from the start that the two men don't like each other & the kid plays on this to his advantage in the hopes of escaping, Baldwin is the younger of the two & is a hothead with a short temper, Scheider is a veteran who is all business & knows that being careful is better than being over the top, this puts the men at odds with each other, what makes this one fun to watch is seeing the kid play the two men against each other, there isn't much I can say without giving away a few surprises, but this is one neat road thriller that got very little attention when released in 1989, it was defiantely shot on a real road & is a cool suspense thrllier with a satisfying ending, if you like road thrills, this is one to get.

Roy Scheider (as Cohen) and Adam Baldwin (as Tate) are bickering mob hit men who kidnap a 9-year old kid who witnessed a mob-related killing. They also kill his parents. Cohen is older and more logical, Tate is a violet hot-head who wants nothing more than to kill the little boy. Pretty much all of this film takes place over a few hours one night on the road, as the trio head back to the city. It's very tense, clever, and well-written, and delivers an unconventional, powerful ending. The kid is never annoying, only cries once, and is portrayed as calm and cunning without being ridiculously precocious. The only downfall is Adam Baldwin's amateurish, too-obvious, over-the-top performance, and that unfortunately prevents this from being a classic. Also, Baldwin spews expletives left and right, however many of them are badly dubbed over as "sucker" or "freakin." That doesn't really make sense. But, at least Baldwin constantly threats the kid, hits him, and points giant guns in his face. That's fun. I really loved this film; you can get it cheap on VHS in a cut-out bin near you.

Love the movie when I first watched it on tape, very different to most shows with a bit off flair to it. The story is very interesting and makes you listen as to what is going on. Some twist and turns with the hit men making a run after they shoot the witness and the guards not having a chance. Taking a hostage who causes more pain than they expected. Now its not boring as it has a bit off a pace but not too fast as to spoil a fantastic show. I rated this an A grade plus for a classic with plenty of suspense attached with the excitement that goes with it, and that keeps you glued to your chair not wanting to miss anything, so what are you waiting for, get to it and collect the popcorn, put your feet up for an great night for entertainment and enjoy.

This movie ends as only it can, it's intense and very hard to put aside. Some of the criticism about the beginning plot holes as fair and are typical of low budget movies, but with that said this movie is about the characters and their interactions and the little boy they kidnap. If you like 'Drive', you'll probably like this movie. Both actors play their parts well and the little boy is incredible.

Cohen & Tate, 1989 film

This is the story about two criminals who kill the parents of a young boy and kidnap him. There is action right at the beginning. The boy will be brought back to Houston Texas (they are paid to do this). [When you think about this it seem implausible.] After the murders they drive away in the night with the young boy in the back seat. [He is not hooded or restrained.] There are dramatic events to carry the story forward. They are able to overcome two policemen at a roadblock! After this they hijack another car (as if this was a long-term solution). The pair have problems (to add comic touches to a serious drama).

There is a personality conflict between the older and wiser Cohen and the younger and emotional Tate. They drive through the dark night, having to take the back roads after the incident with the police. At a rest stop the boy warns Cohen that Tate wants to kill them both. [What about their payoff? Is it wise to mail cash in an envelope?] They drive in silence, no radio, as the boy sings about MacDonald’s Farm. There is conflict over driving the car. Suddenly Tate ceases to be a problem for Cohen! Cohen can handle that. They stop for gas. Cohen makes a quick decision. Later a flat tire presents a new problem, and a big surprise! [Believable? But it adds to the drama.]

The boy drives the car, then stops. There is another surprise! [This is like a cartoon.] Next there is more bloody action! Who will walk away now? Morning’s light reveals a police helicopter following them as they near Houston. There is a car crash, police cars surround them. Will Cohen surrender to face the charges? Will the young boy celebrate his tenth birthday? What ending will please the audience?

This was inspired by O.
