Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 08/02/1993
"...[The] supporting performances are functionally intense, and behind-the-scenes contributions, notably Dean Tavoularis' opulent production design, are elaborate and highly professional..."

Product Description:

A Los Angeles special agent (Snipes) must team up with an expert on Japanese culture (Connery) to investigate the murder of a call-girl in the boardroom of a Japanese corporation. The case turns out to be bigger than either of them had thought. Rather loosely based on Michael Crichton's novel.

Plot Synopsis:

Amid distrust and uncertainty, two detectives from Los Angeles investigate the murder of a young woman. The story is set in and around a Japanese corporation based in Los Angeles and the detectives bring their differing viewpoints about Japanese corporate society into the murder investigation.
