YMMV: Red Heat
  • Cult Classic: In Russia at least (see directly below).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • This film has yet another demeaning quote about politicians from Schwarzenegger.
    Ridzik: Yeah? Well, tell me something, Captain. If you've got such a fucking paradise over there, how come you're up the same creek as we are with heroin and cocaine?
    Danko: Chinese find way. Right after revolution, they round up all drug dealers, all drug addicts, take them to public square, and shoot them in back of head.
    Ridzik: Ah, it'd never work here. Fucking politicians wouldn't go for it.
    Danko: Shoot them first.
  • Ho Yay: The infamous opening, where Danko goes to a meeting in public bathouse which is filled with sweaty half naked men working out.
  • Memetic Mutation: The Cocainum line became a Russian internet meme.
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: This almost-forgotten flick used to be a big VHS hit in late 80's - early 90's Russia and is still considered an enjoyable camp classic, mostly because of Arnold's hilariously over-the-top performance, very fake "Soviet" sets and bad Russian accents, and good old nostalgia.
