Legendary journeyman Ridley Scott takes on the cop movie with Black Rain, a film that sees Michael Douglas's slightly corrupt but generally okay detective arrest a ruthless Yakuza member (Yusaku Matsuda) after Matsuda murders a couple of rivals in broad daylight.
The film stars Michael Douglas as Detective Nick Conklin, another movie cop fresh off an internal affairs investigation who is at a bar one night with his partner, Charlie Vincent, played by Andy Garcia, where they witness a meeting between New York mobsters and members of the Yakuza (the Japanese Mafia), which results in two people being murdered in cold blood in front of dozens of witnesses.
