5.0 out of 5 stars A star performance from Sean Connery, 29 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Rising Sun [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
This thriller is about the merger/takeover of an American microchip manufacturing company by a Japanese enterprise. A big party is held to celebrate the merger. But one of the party girls ends up murdered and the police detectives are called in to solve the crime. Harvey Keitel as Lt. Tom Graham plays the insensitive, brash detective in charge; but because of the sensitivity of the case, two specialists are brought in on the investigation because they both speak some Japanese: Lt. Webster Smith (Wesley Snipes) and Capt. John Connor (Sean Connery). The Japanese cultural etiquette woven into the story gives an added touch of authentic atmosphere: Connor is the senpai or mentor while Smith is his kohai (protégé). The senior Japanese executive is Yoshida-san (Mako). The playboy of the Japanese group is Eddie Sakamura (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Bob Richmond (Kevin Anderson) is the chancer go-between for the Japanese and American delegations. Senator John Morton is played by Ray Wise, the prevaricating influence in the Senate debating whether or not to allow the merger to go ahead. But the story is really all about the young girl's murder and catching the perpetrator.
