->'''Ridzik''': About this pile-of-shit pimp in here. In this country, we try to protect the rights of individuals. It's called the [[MirandaRights Miranda Act]], and it says that you can't even touch his ass.
->'''Danko''': I do not want to touch his ass. I want to make him talk!

''Red Heat'' is a 1988 action film directed by Walter Hill and produced by Creator/CarolcoPictures.

After failing to catch Georgian drug dealer Viktor Rostavili (shortened to "Rosta"), who shot his partner in the process, Soviet cop Ivan Danko (Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger) is tasked to follow Rosta into the United States and bring him back. There Danko is forced to be a partner to the loose cannon Chicago cop Art Ridzik (Creator/JamesBelushi), and they both have to learn to work together. It became a minor cult classic in Russia, largely because Ahnold + the Russian langugage = HilarityEnsues.
