New York detective Nick Conklin is a down on his luck, under investigation by Internal Affairs. He and his friend Charlie witness a brutal murder at the meeting between Mafia and Yakuza chieftains. After arresting a suspect named Sato, they are assigned to escort him to Osaka, where they promptly hand him over to his fellow gangsters, disguised as cops. Determined to pursue the escaped suspect, Nick and Charlie besiege the Osaka police for help. They are grudgingly granted observer status--no guns--and a minder: assistant detective Masahiro Matsumoto. Meanwhile, escaped suspect Sato has plans to bypass the traditional Yakuza hierarchy and go straight to the top, unless the New Yorkers can convince the Japanese to help them stop him.

Hans Zimmer knocks it out with a great soundtrack. I originally watched this movie in the theatres when it came out and I loved it then. Now, as someone whose been to Japan, I loved it again. The story is good, IMO. Douglas/Garcia do an excellent job. I want to return to Japan for a vacation due to seeing the streets, countryside in this movie. I have so much more I want to say but don't want to wreck the story........
