  1. DenoResandono's rating of the film Black Rain

    BLACK RAIN is really an underrated movie from director Ridley Scott. When I was watching this movie, some weird thoughts popped up in my mind. I guess, BLACK RAIN is Ridley Scott's effort to make a stylish action movie like his brother - Tony Scott. In the end, this movie feels like a William Friedkin's kind of movie. I didn't say it was bad. It's a good thing, of course. BLACK RAIN is an amazing crime-thriller movie

  2. saltwater's rating of the film Black Rain

    Aside from the gorgeous neo noir cityscapes, this is a straight-up unremarkable action movie. Without the scenery, it would be nothing.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Black Rain

    Une oeuvre décevante, bruyante et prétentieuse qui manque d'envergure ....

  4. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Black Rain

    Michael Douglas really suits the role, but what makes this film good is it's great scenery shots and the cinematography by Jan de Bont that has echoes of "Blade Runner" to it. Sadly, the film doesn't take any risks with the material and the showdown is predictable. Still, an average directed Ridley Scott movie is better to watch than an average directed film by Brett Leonard.

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Black Rain

    Michael Douglas gives a badass performance here and this is a brilliant use of two incredible cities to build up a big police procedural pot boiler.

  6. tyb's rating of the film Black Rain

    Predictable, boring and with a mixture of copaganda and racism to rival Hopper's Colors.

  8. Steve G.'s rating of the film Black Rain

    This is why I'm over-protective of my jackets.

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Black Rain

  12. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Black Rain

    Disappointing. One of Ridley Scott's weakest movies. Totally unconvincing story. Too much, overmotivated Michael Douglas. Very much predictable. Too little tension, very little thrill. Bad dialogues. It's a pity but overall boring movie. 1,5 stars, can't give more.

  13. Zach Closs's rating of the film Black Rain

    Really, really wanted to like this -- Ridley Scott doing neo-noir again had my expectations high -- but top tier cinematography and crisp editing can't save this film from its xenophobic, trope-ridden and repulsively arrogant screenplay.

  14. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Black Rain

    1989, dir. RIDLEY SCOTT - 6/10 (USA)

  15. Hyperion_333's rating of the film Black Rain

    In the moments when it wasn't totally LOL it was just plain racist.

  16. Luis Pires's rating of the film Black Rain

    Everything is better in Japan, even this kind of movies.

  17. el.'s rating of the film Black Rain

    maybe it deserves more, but having in mind i fell asleep twice trying to watch it, felt irritated by looking at the D&B duo and actually every sloppy character in the, just no. the screenplay and i'm guessing the idea of making a somewhat smarter, more serious version of an action flick turned out to be a mix containing many shades of assholeism and silliness. this one really sucked the life out if me

  18. PETE GCDB's rating of the film Black Rain

    An awesome film by one of my fav directors! Just thought of a great double feature, The Yakuza (1975) and this one. :)

  19. Palmat's rating of the film Black Rain

    A great old gem of a movie. It might feel a bit slight compared to Scotts other efforts but both Douglas and Garcia works the script for all it´s worth. The visuals and the score are astounding and the action set pieces are pretty cool. A true guilty pleasure in my book.

  20. deckard croix's rating of the film Black Rain

    I could've overlooked the horrible screenplay/lackluster direction (not a bad look to the film overall though, superficially), but the constant barrage of American arrogance was so incredibly grating that it killed any potential this film might have had otherwise - it's shoved down your throat at every opportunity. The development of the plot is horrendous, lacking any basis in reality at all. Wear thick gloves.

  21. madebydanlam's rating of the film Black Rain

    andy garcia makes the movie.

  22. Mugino's rating of the film Black Rain

    The one star is for the oyabun's bitter speech about surviving WWII bombings and the titular black rain. Inexplicably, the screenplay fails to pursue this theme of post-war tension, opting instead for false and insulting cultural stereotypes. The renegade cop as hero is a childish Hollywood trope that needs to be permanently retired.

  23. Zachary Curl's rating of the film Black Rain

    a very enjoyable film to watch. this felt like it epitomized the Japanese culture from the perspective of the Americans in the eighties. something about the ultra gritty feel worked for me though, and i just like watching it.

  24. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Black Rain

    Una muestra tanto de lo bueno como de lo peor de Ridley Scott. Visualmente tan deslumbrante como Blade Runner, pero en lo anecdotico (el tipico super "tira" americano quien en busca de venganza hace y deshace desmadre y medio en un pais ajeno totalmente a su antojo), casi carente por completo de interes. Andy Garcia se diò a conocer al mundo con esto. Para darle en la madre a un par de horas sin mayor remordimiento.
