East Meets West: 'Red Heat' and the Kings of Carolco (2004)
*** (out of 4)
Producers Mario Kassar and Andrew G. Vajna are interviewed for this ten-minute featurette that takes a look at the production of RED HEAT. This is more of a promotional piece than anything else but if you're a fan of the film then you should enjoy it. There's some nice footage that was taken on the set that shows Walter Hill doing his job, which was nice to see. The producers talk about a variety of subjects including letting the director get his vision on the screen. They tell some good stories about the casting of Arnold and James Belushi as well as what impact the film had on their career. There's nothing ground-breaking here but this is a fun featurette and one that's worth watching.
