I've been confusing this one with Red Heat for the longest time. Finally I watched both of them back to back to properly tell them apart, so here it is: my review for this other one of the two movies...
It's awesome eighties action again!. Arnold in his prime. This is the one with the bulldozers; the other the one with the buses. This the one where he plays a gangster; the other where he's Russian. This is the grittier one, and the other the slightly more realistic. This is pretty much all-out-action, while the other is part thriller.
Both deal with drug trade though, both are cops and robbers movies, and in both of them he goes undercover. Both are pretty similar after all... and they're both great as well.
Though this one begins in a cheesy way compared to the other it feels like it catches up, and goes past the other towards the end. It doesn't feel as polished as the other, but it's definitely the one with the most action out of the two. Not all realistic, but it's got that kind of firepower where things really get shot up. Great movie, and even outside the action Arnold's a pretty tough dude. A real G. Also as in: great watch.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
