SYLVESTER STALLONE – KURT RUSSELL – TANGO 1 CASH – 1989
A small film to just laugh at the
naïveté and superficiality of action films. But it is a good think to laugh
from time to time. The only serious thing is that the police in Los Angeles, LAPD as well
as FBI, is rotten to the core of the core, the heart of the heart, soul, mind
and brain, and even probably the tripe and the gut. But that is no secret and
it is not close to changing in the near future.
The two cops are heroes, then
framed, then thrown into prison among the criminals they have managed to send
to prison, then they escape, then they clean themselves up and destroy a whole
drug cartel, and finally they are heroes again.
The action is both spectacular
and not too expensive. It is a film for teenagers, teeny boppers if I can say
so, in the summer or something like that. Parents can sleep peacefully, there
is nothing that can be seen as or said to be in anyway off the straight line of
don’t ask don’t tell don’t say don’t do and any other don’t you may think of.
Enjoy the trip into
where big wheels means little brains
