1989 Certificate: 18


A pair of New York cops (Douglas and Garcia) head to Japan to track down a ruthless Yakuza killer in Ridley Scott's slick and moody crime cracker. It's an effective culture-clash thriller, boasting an ace villainous turn from oriental mastercrook Yusaka Matsuda and a suitably fatale-istic turn from Kate Capshaw as the American club hostess who catches Douglas's eye. As usual, Scott's visuals are as a samurai's blade.
