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.

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick. Still, I remember quite well when I saw the damned thing. Indeed, since I always had a weak spot for Ridley Scott’s work, I was quite eager to check it out but I have to admit that I had some rather low expectations towards the damned thing.  Eventually, maybe it was because it didn’t expect much but even though it is probably on... read more

Two New York cops get involved in a gang war between members of the Yakuza, the Japanese Mafia. They arrest one of their killers and are ordered to escort him back to Japan. In Japan, however, he manages to escape. As they try to track him down, they get deeper and deeper into the Japanese Mafia scene and they have to learn that they can only win by playing the game the Japanese way.

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick. Still, I remember quite well when I saw the damned thing. Indeed, since I always had a weak spot for Ridley Scott’s work, I was quite eager to check it out but I have to admit that I had some rather low expectations towards the damned thing.  Eventually, maybe it was because it didn’t expect much but even though it is probably one of the more obscure movies delivered by Scott, I actually enjoyed the damned thing. I mean, like most of the other movies coming from this director, there was absolutely no substance about it whatsoever but I thought it was very well made and it was also simply quite entertaining. Above all, I really enjoyed the mood they created and even though this movie actually didn’t have much else to off” read more
