From Making The Rain Black

Film Review: "Black Rain" (1989)

Here comes one of the ultimate action thrillers of the 1980s in crystal-clear, punch-lining 120-Minute-Final-Cut by editor Tom Rolf (1931-2014), who had received moody, stark to neo-film-noir visuals by one-and-only collaboration between director Ridley Scott and Jan De Bont, making his reputation shine as fully-competent as classic-to-innovative cinematographer, when R. Scott fights out of the corner in his cranking director's chair of the mid-1980s after two mixed-received features with fantasy spectacle "Legend" (1985) starring Tom Cruise and romantic thriller "Someone To Watch Over Me" (1987) starring Tom Berenger; coming out in this motion picture produced Sherry Lansing & Stanley R. Jaffe, known for another Michael Douglas film success "Fatal Attraction" (1987) directed by Adrian Lyne, when Ridely Scott plays his cards with high-focus directing as well as ancient to world-war-II-beating Japan in researched post-war developing underworld to an one of a kind thriller event movie from Fall 1989.

In "Black Rain" is every film department in place with leading actor Michael Douglas as originally-written, down-on-his-luck New York City Cop detective Nick Conklin, who gets found by his new assignment by transferring Yakuza-uprising-criminal Sato, performed by late menacing as brilliantly-authentic actor Yusako Matsuda (1949-1989) to suspense accelerations of live-action-splendors with motorcycles chasing New York streets, Tokyo back alleys, handling on-ride samurai swords to mud-sprinkling cross trails of rural Japan to continuous twisting plot points and further supporting character conflicts, including deeply-atmospheric Japanese night club encounters between Michael Douglas and actress Kate Capshaw as Joyce, an American woman of 35 in exile; to cultural difference-battling new-partners with Tokyo cop Masahiro, performed by honors-indulging Ken Takakura (1931-2014) and Andy Garcia as reckless as lively New York buddy cop Charlie Vincent, all in favor for a well-written story-arc of Micheal Douglas' tight-gripping interpretations of Nick Conklin, making this standing-out action thriller an tremendous success for the matured hard-boiled-loving audiences with regards to the neighing 30th anniversary of "Black Rain" directed by Ridley Scott at age 51.

Oh brother

First of all, I'm not a film snob. I love ridiculous action movies and I enjoy a good 80s cop movie. And yes, there is always some sexism and cultural insensitivity inherent in any older movie - it comes with the territory. Usually I just look past it or ignore it or laugh it off. But less than 30 minutes into this movie, I'm wondering why the h-e-double-hockey-sticks haven't the Japanese police force kicked those two stupid American cops out of their country!

Michael Douglas plays Nick, a thoroughly unlikeable New York detective with no apparent redeeming qualities. The film presents him as the troubled hero, with children and an ex wife and bills to pay and those pesky Internal Affairs cops dogging his steps. And yeah, he might be a little dirty but hey, he's just like you and me, right? Ha. If he has any good qualities, you forget about them as soon as he opens his mouth. He hardly says a word in this movie to friend or foe that isn't some kind of abuse, showing off his "tough guy" attitude, his "I'm a badass American cop, watch how manly and rough I am" persona. He spouts so much abuse at any character that crosses his path, I was really hoping he would get killed off. But nope! No such luck!

He and his younger, much more likable (but still kind of a jerk) partner Charlie escort Japanese criminal Sato back to Japan where they unwittingly allow him to escape. Whoops. Then they proceed to bluster their way through the local police department, insulting their hardworking counterparts left and right and generally making a nuisance of themselves. (Lots of manly posturing and whining and "hey, we're cops too, let us play...even though we don't know any of your laws, procedures, customs, language, etc...whatever, we're still better cops than you!) They mock their Japanese hosts at every opportunity and get all upset when they don't receive respect in return. They even steal evidence from a crime scene and expect to be THANKED for it.

Then Charlie, who was at least trying to be polite and friendly to the local PD, gets freaking decapitated and we're left with only Giant A-Hole Nick. Oh joy. Supposedly all of this murder and mayhem results in some kind of redemption for Nick, but by the time it happens I just couldn't care less about the man.

I've seen a lot of East Meets West movies, a lot of cop movies, a lot of action movies...but very few of them had me rooting AGAINST the main character from the very first scene. The only thing that saved this movie from being a complete wash was the cinematography and the great atmosphere. Very cool. Unfortunately, not enough to distract from how much I just hated Nick and everything he said or did. Which was, alas, most of the movie.

Vengeance and Redenption on Black Rain

l'd watched this picture for first time in 1993 on television since then more twice but now on DVD on widescreen format and classic dubbed version. The movie remember Robert Mitchum's Yakuza and Ridley Scoth has a visual approach of Blade Runner in many scenes...and Michael Douglas as a corrupt cop in a mission in Japan to delivery mob's gangster who escape of this hands for a false Japanese police which arrive early at airport...so he has to prove that wasn't intentional escape and they accept but as observer until your friend and cop Andy Garcia be killed by the mob's boss...even has been suspicious of your past by local police Douglas have a new partner and together trying to arrest the gangster who now have a half of plate to make fake dollars...great Scoth's picture on action and great surprise in the end!!!
