Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Ray Tango (Sylvester Stallone) and Gabe Cash (Kurt Russell) are rival L.A. policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them and theyre like oil and water. But frame them for a crime and theyre like a match and kerosene. Unjustly jailed among lowlifes they put behind bars, the two stage a prison breakout thats a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks then roar after the shadowy crimelord (Jack Palance) who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.]]>

This time around Sly is wealthy Beverly Hills Cop (er...) Ray Tango, the second best cop in LA. Kurt Russell is Gabe Cash, a grubby, shaggy haired renegade who is also the second best cop in LA (depending on your perspective). Both of them are lured into a trap by evil criminal mastermind Yves Perret (Jack Palance, who is entertaining, but has nothing to do) a man who...um...runs a criminal empire? From a warehouse? In a quarry? On an old Air Force base?
Perret and his business partners (exactly what this means and who these guys are is never properly explained - they're bad guys because they're bad guys) are fed up with Tango and Cash/Cash and Tango spoiling their evil schemes and plot to have them framed and thrown into the worst prison imaginable. Any logical mastermind would just kill them but then we would not have a movie.
As a child I never understood this film. I was a smart kid and I was into complex movies well beyond my years. Yeah, I rented a lot of PG-rated stuff but I also consumed lots of grown-up movies. It was only when I was an adult that I realized the reason I didn't understand Tango & Cash was not that it was above me, but that it was BENEATH me. I wanted a serious adult's movie and instead I got a childish shoot-em-up.Read more ›
A star dropped out early on and his role had to to be recast. Russian-born theater and film director Andrey Konchalovskiy was replaced by Albert Magnoli very near completion because of artistic differences with producer Jon Peters. Andrey, who previously directed RUNAWAY TRAIN (1985), DUET FOR ONE [VHS] (1986) and SHY PEOPLE [VHS] (1987), wanted a "dark" film.
Director of photography Barry Sonnenfeld got sacked for not lighting Sly Stallone to the actor's satisfaction. Stuart Baird was called on for re-cuts when Warner's was displeased with the finished movie. For all these adjustments, "Tango & Cash" is still a buddy cop comedy of only middling quality.
Here, Stallone's sophisticated Raymond Tango competes with grungy Gabriel Cash (Russell) for drug busts and news copy. Baddie Palance (in his best "Believe It Or Not" persona) finds a way to get both cops thrown into the jail from perdition, but not before Kurt goes "drag," and Sly frets neurotically over falling stock values and some rising heat between his sister (Hatcher) and Lt. Cash. Pollard is the nerd who supplies T&C with an armed-to-the-roof tank-skinned monster SUV.
Some tepid humor arises from Tango's confusion over Cash's sexuality and with their running gag of macho "I'm a better cop than you" banter.Read more ›
