Considering the caliber of talent, in front and behind the camera, Ridley Scott's violent cop thriller should have been more engaging and compelling
Still plays like a more commerical variation of the superior Year of the Dragon, but Black Rain has aged nicely, and is a strong film in its own right.
Beautiful but not memorable.
Ridley Scott's been better, but Black Rain is rarely less than engaging.
Style wins out over substance again.
Dark and haunting
Nothing brilliant, but it's tough to knock Ridley Scott's style and Michael Douglas with a gun.
