Red Heat ★★ 1988 (R)

Two cops—one from the Soviet Union, one from Chicago—team up to catch the Eastern Bloc's biggest drug czar. Lots of action, but at times it seems too similar to Hill's earlier hit “48 Hours.” Film claims to be the first major U.S. production shot in Red Square, Moscow. 106m/C VHS, DVD . Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Belushi, Peter Boyle, Ed O'Ross, Laurence Fishburne, Gina Gershon, Richard Bright; D: Walter Hill; W: Walter Hill; C: Matthew F. Leonetti; M: James Horner.
