Rising Sun

Overview

When Michael Crichton wrote his best-selling thriller Rising Sun, he wrote the character of hero John Connor with Sean Connery in mind. For Philip Kaufman's film version of the novel, Sean Connery, needless to say, fits seamlessly into the role of a legendary police detective who is an expert in Japanese culture.

Overview

When Michael Crichton wrote his best-selling thriller Rising Sun, he wrote the character of hero John Connor with Sean Connery in mind. For Philip Kaufman's film version of the novel, Sean Connery, needless to say, fits seamlessly into the role of a legendary police detective who is an expert in Japanese culture. The story takes place in the towering office building of the Japanese Nakamoto Corporation in Los Angeles, who are negotiating a deal with Microcon, an American electronics firm. During a gala held one night in the Nakamoto offices, the body of a woman, Cheryl Lynn Austin Tatjana Patitz is found murdered in the main conference room. Arriving quickly on the scene is high-amped police lieutenant Tom Graham Harvey Keitel, who oozes hatred for anything Japanese from every pore. When he has trouble getting cooperation from the Nakatomo executives, Graham calls in Web Smith Wesley Snipes, a Special Services liaison, and John Connor Connery, a man well-versed in Japanese culture and traditions. Together they form a team as they investigate the crime. Connor questions computer video expert Jingo Tia Carrere, who works on a security system computer disc that captures the killer's identity. The only problem is that the image of the killer on the disc has been altered to conceal the murderer's face.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Philip Kaufman's adaptation of Michael Crichton's Japan-bashing potboiler is a fairly standard buddy-cop movie featuring a pair of entertaining star performances. Although the novel's overblown alarmism about the dangers of a dominant Japan would soon be undercut by the meltdown of its economy, the director shrewdly muted the xenophobic material that had made the book so controversial, transforming it into a noirishly incomprehensible film, whose byzantine plot, proliferating characters, and hints of a parallel world of unspeakable vice evokes The Big Sleep. Unfortunately, Kaufman treats this pulpy material with an undeserved seriousness, slowing the pace of the film in a way which underlines its frequently inane dialogue and whimsical plotting. Yet Sean Connery has a great time as the larger-than-life detective whose omniscience regarding all things Asian borders on the comic, and the chemistry of his mentor/student relationship with partner Wesley Snipes carries the viewer smoothly over some of the lamer moments. Also worth noting is the handsome production design of Coppola associate Dean Tavoularis
