This film is essentially one big crushing disappointment from a director who is capable of so much more. The classic loose cannon cop (played by the gipsy-like Michael Douglas) and his cleaner cut partner have to escort a dangerous yakuza prisoner back to Japan. Upon arrival they immediately hand him over to fake cops and then spend the rest of the film trying to atone for their mistake.

Michael Douglas (Nick) and Andy Garcia (Charlie) chase and try to apprehend a killer who flees to Japan...to try to bring him back to justice. Michael Douglas (as Nick) the NY police office does whatever it takes to bring the "untouchable" Japanese Yakuza member to face the crimes he has committed in the movie. The heartless execution, the bike chase,the stake out, all the way through the final fi... read more

Characters based on Yūsaku Matsuda (8 characters items)

"He finally got his Hollywood break at 1989 when he was cast as "Sato" in Ridley Scott's "Black Rain". Sadly it would be his last film, He died because of cancer the same year. CANCER SUCKS!!! So just check the characters below which are all inspired on Yusaku Matsuda or the characters he played"

"Michael Douglas and his partner Andy Garcia head to Osaka on the trail of a vicious yakuza boss. It probably drags on a bit too much. The neon lights of Osaka looks fantastic in the dark under director Ridley Scott evoking memories of Blade Runner. This movie has a little of everything - action, suspense, drama, and characters you actually care about."

"2 Cops befriend Every buddy cop movie in existence (except Running Scared oddly enough) is based on this tradition. Two cops who initially don't get along find something in common during their investigation. Usually this difference of personalities is pushed even further by making them different colored or from different parts of the world. However, not both need to be cops. In Midnight Run Robert De Niro is escorting a Mafia accountant played by Charles Grodin, and DeNiro himself is a bounty h"

"First viewing - Feb. 26th/27th I wanted to see this one because Ridley Scott directed it & I like Michael Douglas. Turns out I could've skipped it. The acting is solid across the board & the score is good, but the story is so plot-by-numbers I was left underwhelmed. It's predictable and nothing new at all, which is disappointing. On the other hand it manages to be mostly entertaining, though the last half loses some momentum as the plot gets dragged out a half an hour longer than seems necessar"
