Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/19/1989
"...BLACK RAIN is exotic, energized entertainment..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/22/1989
"...It's a blast of pure sensation....Scintillating, like a great rock melody, superbly produced..."
Ultimate DVD - 12/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Visually reminiscent of Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER, this taut, underrated thriller is a dark, brooding affair..."

Plot Synopsis:

In BLACK RAIN, a dirty New York cop learns the value of honor from a Japanese cop who in turn learns about the benefits of not-so-subtle American assertiveness. Ridley Scott's thriller features a rarely seen side of Japan seething with mob violence, prostitution, homelessness, and near-peasant rural life.

Production Notes:

  • Shot on locations in Osaka, Japan; New York City, New York; and Northern California.
  • This film is not to be confused with Japanese director Shohei Imamura's BLACK RAIN, which was produced around the same time. Imamura's film deals with the lives of a Japanese family who survived the nuclear-bombing of Hiroshima. The phrase "black rain," used in both films, refers to the deadly fallout caused by the detonation of an atomic weapon.
