Teen Movie Critic
Tango and Cash
The pairing of Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone may have seemed like a good idea at a time, but the two action stars seem to add to the excess baggage of the overall film. The story is basically this: Two headline making cops, who compete with each other on and off the job, take on Mr. Big. In the course of an hour and a half, Kurt and Sly blow up various buildings, vehicles and baddies; Escape from prison; Bust some drug dealers; And rescue Sly's stripper sister (Teri Hatcher in a truly demeaning role) from a cartoonish villain (Jack Palance). Not in that order of course!
This mind-boggelingly awful, violently repellent film made even the most avid Russell-Stallone fans run for the exits. Much of the dialogue is hilariously (but unintentionally) funny and the lines that are meant to be funny, well...you get the picture. Much of the blood-and-guts violence is there for violence sake, so you'll either be repelled or bored. Maybe a bit of both at the same time.
