Rating: 2/4 -- ...an ineffective misfire that surely looked a whole lot better on paper. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
...The director plays it bright and hard....Stallone gives a quick, lively, likable performance...
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 1.5/4 -- Tango and Cash is a loud, violent, badly written, rather boring cookie-cutter cop picture. Full Review
Philadelphia Daily News
Rating: 1.5/4 -- This form of self-conscious action filmmaking is smeared over both Stallone and Russell. They mug mercilessly (none too well) and, of course, they rely on plenty of bang and firepower to disguise a sour and often nasty script. Full Review
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Rating: 1.5/4 -- Both men think that the best way to deliver the right to remain silent to the usual suspects is via a right hook. Full Review
A mindless buddy cop pic, loaded with nonstop action that's played mostly for laughs and delivers too few of them. Full Review
It is impossible not to see a film that, voluntarily or involuntarily, is placed under the advocation of the comical and James Bond. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Tango and Cash are two L.A. narcotics cops that go together like caviar and French fries. Dressed in three-piece suits and glasses, Tango (Sylvester Stallone) is the suave policeman; in his nine-dollar shirts and jeans, Cash (Kurt Russell) is Tango's salt-of-the-earth rival on the force. Each has spent his days and nights cracking down on drug dealers, to the fury of crime boss Yves Perret (Jack Palance). When Perret and his gang frame the two cops and have them sent to prison, it turns out that Tango and Cash don't get along any better behind bars than they did in the station house (they trade insults, and protest having to shower together). But when the ruling underground goons of the penitentiary torture them, Tango and Cash join forces to overthrow the prison menace, and, in the process, escape. Once free, they pursue Perret and attempt to destroy his cartel for good--that is, when Cash isn't busy romancing Tango's sister, Kiki (Teri Hatcher), further straining the pair's already tense working partnership. Atypically directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky (collaborator with arthouse cinema legend Andrei Tarkovsky and older brother of director Nikita Mikhalkov), TANGO & CASH remains one of the unsung action-comedy buddy films of the 1980s.
- Albert Magnoli completed the directing chores of this film, after Andrei Konchalovsky left the film.
