A Soviet officer and a Chicago cop team up to catch a drug king pin in this late Cold War film. Red Heat helped to establish Arnold Schwarzenegger as a comedic talent after a string of tough guy films. The drug plot connects the crack wave in late 1980s America to a global economy sustained by Cold War tensions.
