Black Rain (1989, Scott)


Black Rain is a 1989 American action-thriller film directed by Ridley Scott, starring Michael Douglas, Andy García, Ken Takakura, Kate Capshaw and Yusaku Matsuda.

The story centers on two New York City police officers who arrest a member of the Yakuza and must escort him back to Japan. Once there, he escapes, and the two police officers find themselves dragged deeper and deeper into the Japanese underworld. The film would serve as inspiration for the 1991 SNK arcade game Burning Fight whose plot was similar to the film.

It's always and I still can't get through this film, it always seems super boring. Anyone recommend it?

Black Rain

I love a renegade-cop-who-plays-by-his-own-rules film any day of the week! Michael Douglas is cool and the 80s-ness of the film is nostalgic enough for me to like it, but they dropped the ball in many other areas. It doesn't make great use of the Japan setting (and rather, it makes the Japanese look incompetent) and it is sometimes boring. It's like a dummed-down version of Cobra, only set in Japan instead of the USA.
