The mysterious twists and turns of this culture clash between Japan and America is definitely worth a view. Wesley Snipes and Sean Connery work well together in this action packed thriller.

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, the damned thing definitely had some potential.

At the offices of a Japanese corporation, during a party, a woman, who's evidently a professional mistress, is found dead, apparently after some rough sex. A police detective, Web Smith is called in to investigate but before getting there, he gets a call from someone who instructs him to pick up John Connor, a former police Captain and expert on Japanese affairs. When they arrive there Web thinks that everything is obvious but Connor tells him that there's a lot more going on.

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, the damned thing definitely had some potential. Indeed, I really liked the concept of mixing a neo-noir detective tale with a culture clash between Japan and the USA and the addition of a corporate war was also really neat. So, they seemed to have some very interesting ingredients to deliver a really solid thriller but, unfortunately, it all fell apart fairly quickly, I'm afraid. First of all, while most of the cast was good enough, Sean Connery was rather miscast in my opinion. Indeed, even though I always had a weak spot for this actor, he was never convincing as a supposedly expert in Japanese culture.

" The Ups: Unique mix of traditional crime movie and high tech technology shaked with a little sex - yes, please, but why do Hollywood films always need to partner two cops that are so unique and different that it could only work in this kind of fiction? Sadly, the true killer is a little obvious, especially when one see the cast list. "

"When: July 10th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from my collection. What'd I Think?: Crichton adaptation is engaging and quasi-intelligent, lacks the novel's sharp bite and smooth pace. My Rating: 6/10 Other Notes: NA."
