The jokes seem lame and the rivalry fraudulent, as the two boys play with their big guns.

The film looks like the sort of queasy fever dream that might be produced by sitting through an entire Orson Welles film festival while eating pepperoni pizzas.

Tango and Cash is a loud, violent, badly written, rather boring cookie-cutter cop picture.

Both men think that the best way to deliver the right to remain silent to the usual suspects is via a right hook.

Tango and Cash is a waste of talent and energy on all levels: unworthy of Konchalovsky, unworthy also of Stallone, Russell and every superior technical credit on the film.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

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.

The result is great, brainless fun.

The ostensible humor here is of the macho one-liner variety, and much of it falls flat.

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]

A very smart 'dumb' movie.

Stallone and Russell play well off each other, and with Palance lurking in the background, this buddy-breakout never loses its way.

A mindless buddy cop pic, loaded with nonstop action that's played mostly for laughs and delivers too few of them.

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.

Full of stupid A-Team-style action. A forerunner of today's braindead action films.

An awful, smug, monster truck of a movie.

A fun, frantic two-hander

A much tighter and harder-hitting action flick than you might expect.

Is schlock spelled with an 'S-C-H' or a simple 'S-H'?

Movie Eye

A boisterous and banal buddy-buddy formula that arbitrarily pairs Stallone and Russell in tiresome banter
