Korean historical mystery drama. When a shipment of paper on an isolated island goes up in flames, detective Won-kyu (Seung-won Cha) suspects arson. Once he arrives on the island, he is beset by strange superstitious tales from the locals, but when he uncovers a series of grisly murders, Won-kyu must track down the killer and convince the islanders that they were committed by a man, and not a ghost.

The movie tells the story of a murder mystery in Korea in the year 1808. The film shows how mysterious murders start to occur in an isolated island. Officer Won-kyu is then sent to the island to investigate the murders.
I'm a lover of the mystery/suspense genre and was looking forward to this one, which had a period setting giving the movie fresh appeal. Since the film was about 2 hours in length, I gave it time to settle for the first hour, thinking the pace of the plot was going to pick-up. Unfortunately the pace remains slow and boredum sets in as the feature takes eternity to get to the point. The climax is stupid to round things off.
Also the mystery is uninteresting and our lead actor and detective, Cha Seung-won (enacts the role of Won-kyu), does not display any investigative skills. Instead our super detective has a special power of suddenly coming up with answers from nowhere. If he fails in that, he skillfully beats up suspects who oblige by confessing.
The positive aspects are the good production values, interesting killings and the identity of the killer, which I couldn't guess. Also, there are a couple of scenes, which are gripping but not enough to save the feature.
Cha Seung-won lacks the energy and brings no personality to his character making the movie even more boring. Everyone else are just about average.
The direction by Kim Dae-seung is routine and fails to create any sort of suspense or tension.
As a viewer there are no hints to solve the mystery and a non-existent guessing game. It was a pointless and long 2 hours.
Refrain from watching 'Blood Rain'.

Immediately upon his arrival on the island the investigator becomes entangled in a series of gruesome murders. The owner of the paper plant was accused of being Catholic and killed, along with his family 7 years prior, and now people are falling victim in the same fashion the family was killed.
The protagonist of this story is an investigator named Lee. He is a Korean Sherlock Holmes, working on simple deduction, and at times violence. He doesn't suffer superstitions lightly, and is especially irritated with the local Shaman.
Lee is played by Seung Won Cha, who is nothing short of brilliant in this role. He is stoic, a man with pride that comes with rank and genealogy. Because of his own morals and pressure from his senior officer, he is determined to find the killer.
The only thing that kind of puts me off is the level of violence. There are only a few violent scenes, but the few that are there are a bit graphic. There is one scene where someone was drawn and quartered that I had to look away. But I have a low tolerance for violence, so I'm really not a good judge.
All in all, Blood Rain has the best of everything. Beautiful costumes, good production, intriguing mystery, the right amount of action and wonderful acting.
I don't think there are enough adjectives for this movie. Highly recommended!
