Rising Sun – The Crichton Cast 3


Welcome back to the Crichton Cast!

This week, we’re talking about the OTHER Michael Crichton movie released in the year of 1993, and the novel on which it was based; Rising Sun.

Set along side a heaping portion of business espionage, Rising Sun is above all else, a classic who-dun-it mystery tale.

When a beautiful woman is found murdered the boardroom table of a prominent Japanese company operating in the US, two police detectives have limited time to solve the case before powerful business interests use the crime to further their own goals.

Steven and Eric read, watched, and listened to both the book and the movie to discuss the similarities, and the differences.

Our discussion covers both the novel and the film versions of the stories, including a good talk about the casting choices – both the hits, and the misses.

We also talk about the story, the action, the characters, the changes made for the film adaptation, and much more!

If you are reading this you must be a fan of Michael Crichton just as we are. Whether you love the science in his writing, the adventurous places it takes you or just fell in love with dinosaurs on the big screen we will have something for you.

Every two weeks, in a mini-series format Steve and Eric will discuss a book of Michael Crichton’s which was made into a movie. Compare both mediums, discuss the good and bad, our takes on what worked and interesting facts. Listen in and discuss with us!
