Sylvester Stallone tries his luck with his first cop buddy movie in Tango and Cash, directed by Andrei Konchalovsky. Stallone is Ray Tango, a Los Angeles narcotics cop who dresses in fancy suits, wears wire-rim glasses, and talks to his stockbroker more than he talks to his mother. Kurt Russell is Gabriel Cash, another Los Angeles narcotics cop who has long, disheveled blonde hair and dresses in worn-out sweatshirts. Together, Tango and Cash are the two best narcs in LA, which causes drug baron Yves Perret (Jack Palance) no end of distress. Since Yves controls a billion-dollar drug empire,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A mindless buddy cop pic, loaded with nonstop action that's played mostly for laughs and delivers too few of them."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"More like My Beautiful Laundrette in the closet than it is a bad ripoff of Lethal Weapon."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Stallone and Russell play well off each other, and with Palance lurking in the background, this buddy-breakout never loses its way."
‑ Kirsty McNeill, Empire Magazine
"A fun, frantic two-hander"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Is schlock spelled with an 'S-C-H' or a simple 'S-H'?"
‑ Oz, Hollywood Bitchslap
"What makes this shoot-'em-up nonsense surprisingly watchable is Randy Feldman's rapid-fire dialogue, which constantly undercuts the macho posturings while parodying Stallone's screen image."
‑ , Time Out
"A bizarrely appealing movie, Tango & Cash is the essence of camp: it's bad and knows it's bad, so therefore, it's...good? [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Full of stupid A-Team-style action. A forerunner of today's braindead action films."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"A much tighter and harder-hitting action flick than you might expect."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"A boisterous and banal buddy-buddy formula that arbitrarily pairs Stallone and Russell in tiresome banter"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"For all practical purposes, there is no plot."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A very smart 'dumb' movie."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"An awful, smug, monster truck of a movie."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Think 'Lethal Weapon' in the closet . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Movie Gurus
"Stupid but agreeable buddy-cop movie, thanks to the chemistry between Russell and Stallone."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
