| From the golden period of Schwarzenegger
The movie is a very good and stylish action, but such movies are not appreciated in comparison with the recent action movies which is pretty strange. For example, even the rating of awful Transporter 3 is higher than Red Heat. You probably know that critics hate Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Van Damme, also they hate action genre probably, so according to them, Schwarzenegger is an untalented muscle mass who can impress only children and his movies are shame. Schwarzenegger is not a Jack Lemmon or Sean Penn or Brad Pitt, but he has a pulling power and is great acting necessary for action movies? I ask this already asked question. By the way, I think that his performance in The Terminator 2 was outstanding. And as an action star, he is much better than new action stars. He made very bad movies yes, but everyone does that, doesn't? One of the criticisms of the critics is that he kills people, so the movie supports individual justice (killing criminals instead of imprisoning etc.) Well, most of action movies are like that, but they do not object, when it comes Tarantino movies or David Cronenberg movies like A History of Violence. Red Heat does not include a lot of action scenes, or action scenes are not 'big', but it is very stylish thanks to Walter Hill, one of my all time favorite directors and fun. There is a key scene, when I was a child, I used to become Arnold Schwarzenegger and do what he does in the scene. He was one of my childhood heroes. Those days and his films are pleasant memories for me. Returning to Red Heat, it is from Schwarzenegger's golden period. Today, they cannot make action movies like Red Heat.
