1989 Nominated for 2 Oscars NY City Cops, Japanese Mafia - Yakuza Gang Wars - If you liked Blade Runner you'll love Black Rain, both Ridley Scott movies. After arresting a member of the Yakuza for murder, two NY City Cops are ordered to escort the member back to Japan. Upon their arrival in Japan, he escapes. Tracking him down takes these cops deeper and deeper into the Japanese Mafia scene and to survive they must learn to play the game the Japanese way. Characters are well written Scott is a visual genius with the locales and industrial wastelands. The only thing that could be improved on is giving more screentime to Kate Capshaw! Rated R and 125 min in length.
