The first street scene in Chicago features an LA Metro bus and Los Angeles street signs, while the scenes at the supposedly Chicago O'Hare Airport are clearly filmed at Los Angeles International. See more »
[Ridzik and Danko go to speak with Abdul Elijah in prison]
Hey, you, come here. This is Captain Danko. He's come all the way from Russia to speak with your scoutmaster.
Well, that's nice, but who the fuck are you?
These men have no respect of our authority as police officers.

In the opening credits certain letters are reversed so as to imitate Russian Cyrillic script. In particular, "Rs" and "Ns" are reversed. See more »
This movie was excellent for it's kind. Two good guys were thrown together in a dangerous situation of good vs. evil. The film's title Red Heat refers to a war between cops and druglord's in the former USSR and also Chicago. Arnold of course played the tough guy character and Jim plays the comedy relief. My favorite movie of it's kind besides Bad Boys. I highly recommend it if you're a fan of this type of film.
