Movie Summary

Director:
Walter Hill
Released:
1988
Rating:
R

Red Heat centers around a very unlikely team of crime-fighting men as they face a most threatening, high-ranking criminal. Ivan Danko is a reputable Russian law enforcement officer and a man of few words. Art Ridzic is a loud, lousy detective working for the Chicago police department. Although Danko and Ridzic couldn't be anymore unlike one another, they are forced to join forces to fight a seemingly unstoppable Soviet drug lord named Viktor Rostavili. The movie follows Danko and Ridzic in their many failed attempts to catch Viktor. As they chase him all over the city of Chicago.
