Nick (Michael Douglas) and his partner, Charlie (Andy García) are two corrupt New York City police officers accused of stealing money from a crime scene.  While at a restaurant one evening they witness a meeting between two Japanese and Italian crime families go afoul, resulting in one man's decapitation.

The duo is able to apprehend the killer, Sato (Yusaku Matsuda).  To keep Nick and Charlie out of trouble and off internal affairs' radar, the officers' captain designates them to extradite the mobster to Japan.  Once there Sato escapes however, forcing both men to employ their New York City know-how on Tokyo's most dangerous streets.

Black Rain was nominated for two Oscars.  The picture was a commercial success, netting $134 million at box offices worldwide, quadrupling its $30 million budget.
