Brilliant example of Japanese corporation trading (by grayston-1)
This film closely resembles the book and gives a brilliant portrayal of Japanese 'Keiretsu' company trading as just how deep and nasty things can get when a major player wants to move in. Connery is fantastic as the detective who used to give in Japan and understands 'Nihondo' Japanese ways . The character Peter Smith has been changed to 'Wes Smith' although I cannot understand why? Maybe 'Wes' is more trendy than Peter...There are some excellent descriptions of Japanese culture and the Taiko Japanese Drummers are very good.I highly recommend this film to <more>
anyone with an interest in Japan or Japanese culture10/10
I actually read the book before seeing the movie, I recall at the time many years ago that I didn't think Snipes fit the kohai role very well. Since then I can't recall the book much and I have acclimated more to Wesley. But the focus here is on Connery, in one of his truly superb roles as Captain John Connor on special assignment to the LA PD. Connery has spent years with and among the Japanese, and when a prostitute is murdered inside Japanese corporate offices in Los Angeles, Detective Snipes and Connery are on the job. The plot as it is isn't really very exceptional, what is <more>
extraordinary is Connery's interactions with Snipes, the Japanese and everyone else, along with the for then astounding technology, always a Crichton staple. I can just sit back and watch Connery in this role for forever. Highly recommended just on the strength of Connery alone.
The best film adaptation of a Crichton book ever! (by thirteenthfloorelevator)
With a cast that includes the original and still the best James Bond and Wesley Snipes, as well as many character actors famous for playing heavies in movies, it would have been so easy to make a cheap, b-grade action movie out of the novel Crichton wrote. Fortunately, a skilled director and writer have restrained themselves at most points and made an impeccable, well crafted thriller concerning xenophobia and international relations.Wesley Snipes plays Webb, our main protagonist. Webb is a cop who does not play by the rules. Still relatively young, he has seen lots of crime and knows that to <more>
beat the bad guys you have to sink to their level. Connery plays the respectable John Connor, a by the books cop who insists on opposing Webb almost every step of the way - but nothing could prepare these two for the mystery they are about to unfold: A body of a girl lies at the top floor of a building. There is a party there. The hosts make it clear they do not want the investigation infringing upon the party. connor and Webb try to play it by the books - but it is difficult when you face a ruthless, nameless enemy.Impeccable movie. I give it 10 out of 10. Wesley Snipes proved his worth as an actor with this film.

Harvey Keitel was fantastic in his role, and i was really shocked by some of the plot twists, plus Tatjana Patitz's death scene is quite disturbing at the <more>

This movie is not always easy to understand but if you give it a couple of looks, which it is worthy of doing, all the pieces finally fit and it's a good two hours of entertainment.This modern-day crime movie may have a lack of action compared to others of its genre but it never loses your attention. Sean Connery, Wesley Snipes and Harvey Keitel star, along with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Kevin Anderson, Mako and Tia Carrere. This is a high-tech story at least for 1993 as two cops try to figure out who murdered a woman. It's Japanese-big business-politics intrigue with surveillance <more>
cameras being the key to figuring out a murder.Connery and Snipes complement each other as a "buddy" cop duo with Connery being mostly responsible for making this story interesting. The still-suave ex-James Bond plays the cool veteran and it's fun to watch him operate.The only complaint I might have is the ending, a stupid romance-type story with Snipes and Carrere that was very post-climactic and not needed.
ONE OF THE BEST THRILLERS IN 90'S (by matija-trost)
The era when in Hollywood knew how to make a good movies, apart from todays pathetic production.And also one of the best roles for Connery, close to his best performances as unforgetable mister 007. Beside him even Snipes shows up some acting abilities. The story is, honestly, nothing special, even unlogical from time to time, but nevertheless it got something inside, maybe this eastern touch that keeps viewer glued to his seat. If then movie would be little deeper like Blade runner for instance it would be surely a classic. But despite that and mostly because of great performance by <more>
It is hard to pass up a Sean Connery movie, especially one with Wesley Snipes. You can just see Lt. Smith Snipes learning from Captain Conner Connery and taking those lessons to Washington in Murder at 1600.Connery was exceptional in this thriller with multiple twists and turns, and Snipes did a great job as his student. Harvey Keitel added a great dimension as a racist dirty cop.I was also glad to see Steve Buscemi in his usual slimy role. I hadn't seen Tia Carrere since True Lies and she play a super role her as a tech wiz. And, I always like seeing Mako.Great thriller with great <more>
