After his partner is murdered, a Russian detective joins forces with the Chicago police department in order to locate the drug dealer responsible.
Aside from the Soviet-American alliance, this is pretty much the usual mismatched partners formula with an average narcotics plot device.
It's noted for being the first American production permitted to film around the Kremlin, but aside from that slice of trivia it's only the chalk & cheese partnership of Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Belushi that provides amusement.
