Half the picture is missing!!!!!!!!!
Verified purchase
I actually like this film but I can't give it any more than 1 star for a few reason. The first and most important is that it is heavily censored by over a minute, it's not a violent film by todays standards but the action was quite fun! Second, IT'S IN PAN AND SCAN 4:3! Tango & Cash was filmed in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio which means, when panned and scanned, it loses 45% of the picture information! Those who think this isn't an issue have no right to call themselves film fans..... The third is that it's in Standard Definition, but I will accept that comes along with the inferior 4:3 version.
Now everyone is trying to move to UHD, having a film streamed in 4:3, SD and censored when it's available uncut, in it's intended aspect ratio and in 1080p on blu-ray, it makes me happy that I'm sticking with physical media! It's £8.99 on blu-ray and £7.99 in SD on Prime and it won't be free to Prime forever.

Great Action movie, but terrible cut version in 4:3 and not Widescreen
Verified purchase
I purchased this movie on prime video back in 2014, when it was on sale for £6.49. Unfortunately I had not read the reviews, as if I had I would not have purchased it as it is on 4:3 and not Widescreen and also it is the heavily edited version from 1990 clocking in at 97 mins. I know this is a very late review as I hadn't gotten round to watching the movie, or if I had noticed it - I probably noticed it to late to cancel the order. As even at the sale price, it wasn't worth it, as it will now be at the regular price I urge people not to make my mistake and avoid at all costs. Amazon should take this version and replace it with uncut widescreen version. The Google Play store is now offering both versions, the 1990 cut 97 min version and the original uncut 103 min (I believe both are in Widescreen).

Cheesy, not an Instant classic but still fun.
Verified purchase
Looking at the trivia while watching this team you can see why this movie which had good elements fell apart swapping directors producers writers never has a good outcome.

You can tell they tried to emulate the buddy cop success of lethal weapon and infuse with the synth sounds of Beverly Hills Cop. Two superior movies of the 80's which deserve a classic status.

It's not a bad movie per say. Both Stallone and Russell acquit themselves admirably. But Stallone wasn't in the best phase of his career. I wouldn't put this in the best movies list by Russell (Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Tombstone , Stargate) or Stallone (Rocky, Rocky Balboa, Demolition Man, Cliffhanger, First Blood)

Interesting to a bunch of familiar 80/90ss faces. Teri Hatcher in this Before her run On Lois and Clark. Jack Palance was big in City Slickers and Batman. A bunch of character actors like James Hong, Brion James, Marc Alaimo ( gul dukat from ds9!) Clint howard ( Ron Howard's brother!). Hell even Kurt Russell dad bing Howard had a part.

Its truly a nonsense story. framed, in court sentenced in two weeks?!?! A villain with worst cockney accent since Dick Van Dyke it's full on cheese and you'll cringe at the way things looked back then.

I'll never forget this movie because i had my first kiss in the cinema wiith a lovely girl from France. So it was nice catching up with this movie 20+ years later to see what i missed!

Someone Forgot We're Adults!

Full disclosure, this is great piece of 80s action fair, with beautifully cheesy turns by the two leads. An inspired choice, casting Stallone as the suave, sophisticated, by-the-book cop, and Russel - a former clean-cut child star - as the rugged maverick.

There's also some great, silly, over-the-top action, and a cast of punchable-faced goons with the punchable-est of faces.

The TWO STAR rating is for the abysmal, broadcast-on-a-Saturday-afternoon-on-ITV cutting they've done to it (on Amazon Prime, at least). Not everywhere, mind you: the bad language is still in full force, and a lot of the action has been retained, but some patronising buffoon has decided that graphic (read 'silly') scenes of violence - such as an oaf's head being pressed against prison bars, or our two leads being unconvincingly electrocuted - is too much for the precious little flowers who would choose to watch an 18 certificate 80s action romp, starring Rambo, a small nation's worth of munitions and a 4x4 packed with rocket-launchers and chain-guns.

Put a dampener on my Friday evening's entertainment.

Film cut down...evident if you have seen it before.
Verified purchase
Some of the film is cut out. Its obvious to any one who has seen it before. I ended up buying it on google play. The film is 103 mins on on the original version, 97 on this one...which doesn't seem long, but stand out.

Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell rock in this over the top fun 80'Action Comedy
Verified purchase
the box was in good condition as was the dvd as for the movie itself it was 80'Action Comedy at its best.Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell was great duo as two rival L.A cops who are framed by a crazy crime lord play to perfection by Jack Palance who's a good villain. the car chase was awesome as was the crime hideout shootout. even though it only got 6.2 on imdb and 39% on Rotten Tomatoes when it deserved 7.8 because it was funny as well as Action packed and its got good performances from both Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell. teri hatcher is good as rays sister as well as Gabriel's love intrest. Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell make a good duo. if you want laughs and non stop Action tango and cash is the place to go its better then a 100 die will love it:)!!!!!!
