Overview
From Oscar®-nominated director Ridley Scott* (Gladiator) comes this stylish, star-powered crime thriller that crackles with heart-pounding action and taut suspense.

Academy Award®-winner Michael Douglas** is electrifying as Nick Conklin, a rough-and-tumble NYC detective under investigation for corruption. Ordered to escort a cold-blooded killer named Sato back to his native Japan, Nick and his partner Charlie (Oscar® nominee Andy Garcia***) unwittingly deliver Sato into the hands of his own gang. With assistance from a by-the-book Japanese cop (Ken Takakura) and a beautiful club hostess (Kate Capshaw), the American cops chase Sato through Osaka's seamy underworld, as Nick fights to recapture something as important as the criminal he lost: his honor.

* 2000, Best Director, 'Gladiator'
** 1987, Best Actor in a Leading Role, 'Wall Street'
*** 1990, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, 'The Godfather Part III'
