- movie Description
Black Rain (1989) is a movie that represents Sir Ridley Scott's exploration of the cop or police story genre of films. Often reviewed as an above average quality film, the movie is revered in Japan as the actor who played Sato (Yusaka Matsuda), the villain of the film, died shortly after the movie was released. The story offers a fairly accurate depiction of both New York City police detectives and Yakuza culture. Nick (Michael Douglas) is a partly dirty cop that collars a Yakuza gangster after he murders some rival gang members in a New York City restaurant. He and his partner Charlie (Andy Garcia) are therefore assigned to bring Sato to Osaka and hand him over to Japanese authorities. Tricked by gangsters into handing him over to bad guys masquerading as police, Nick and Chris are forced to rely on their wits and their new-found Japanese colleagues to help try to bring Sato in for trial.moreless
