    7 / 10
    One of my favourite cop movies and also one of the most interesting "Michael Douglas" movies so far among with Romancing The Stone and Jewel Of The Nile.Master director Ridley Scott made this movie in the great movie year 1989 and this kicks ass.The story/plot is quite simple:New York cop tries to catch a Japanese criminal, who had escaped from his guard.Later on, those criminals kill his friend and with some help he decides to revenge to the Japanese mafia.
    The picture quality ain`t the best, but still cooler than the vhs rental version.Audio quality is much better than the video quality, but also far from the best.There`s no extra features, but still nice dvd to your collection.
