Trivia

At one point in the movie Danko is discussing (in Russian) America's heroin problem. He makes a reference to a location in the U.S. as being a particular problem. He says (in Russian) "...Gharlem..." which should properly be translated to English as Harlem. In the translation sub-titles the location is "...Miami...". However, the UK DVD release has the correct translation. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Cat Manzetti: You leave your guns with those guys over there.
Art Ridzik: No way. A Chicago cop never relinquishes his weapon.
[the gang all point their guns at him]
Art Ridzik: Here you go.

Good Movie
26 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. I have a thing for late 80's action flicks like Beverly Hills Cop or 48 hrs. I thought this was pretty good movie. One of the members on here said Belushi's character was the worst part of the movie. I thought Belushi was pretty good and comedic. I love the dialogue in the movie between Danko and Ridzik at the coffee shop. Overall I would definitely recommend this movie. I also find the content to be appealing. Russian Mob and drug smuggling. I also thought the bad guy Viktor was a really cool part played by Ed O'Ross who also plays Dutch Schultz right hand man in Hoodlum which is not nearly as good as Red Heat.
