"BLACK RAIN 1ST
I remember going to see this film in the theater.
I think it holds up over the years.
Great to look at, well acted.
1 thing I have NEVER liked about it is the Andy Garcia death scene. Just to look at, not realistic. For film only.
And, what started this story. IF Michael & Anthony were in this restaurant WHY DID THEY NOT STOP THE KILLINGS BEFORE THEY HAPPENED? They were police & had guns.
Still can't figure out little scene at the beginning of the film. WHY TAKE YOUR KID TO SCHOOL IN THE RAIN ON A MOTORCYCLE? Can't the kid get sick?
Good extras on this special edition DVD.
BUT, WHY A PLAIN JANE SILVER DVD? This film was great to look at with both the Japan & New York playing key roles in the film.
Film has the Ridley style. 1 of my favorites of his.
I remember when the film came out. Film goers were talking about it.
Of course, the memorable lines & scenes.
To me it has lost a bit of it's edge over the passage of 21 years.
Well acted by the 3 principles.
1 THING I HAVE ALWAYS HATED ABOUT IT & STILL BOTHERS ME TODAY. What was the deal with the kid Ellen's hair? I THOUGHT IT WAS A GIRL BUT WITH THAT BOYS HAIR CUT? A boy named Ellen?
Some good extras on the DVD. Having the laser disc of the film I had already scene the "original ending" to the film.
At the height of Michael's successful film streak in the 1980's. With the purchase of this DVD I now have the 3 roles of Glenn's I like, besides this 1 "Air Force One" & "101 Dalmatians".
`Don't ignore it" JUST IGNORE THE KID'S HAIR CUT.
