Ex-Los Angeles cop turned private eye Kline (Josh Hartnett) is hired by a billionaire industrialist to search for his missing son. Following a trail that leads him to Asia he soon finds himself in Hong Kong where he is sucked into the world of the city’s most powerful gangster Su Dongpo (Byung-hun Lee from The Good, The Bad, The Weird and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra).
Traumatized by his past as a cop and memories of the serial killer Hasford (Elias Koteas from Crash, Let Me In, Shutter Island), Kline must use everything that he has at his disposal to stay on track and find the missing son.
Action packed and explosive, I Come With The Rain features a career best performance from lead actor Josh Harnett.

The artwork is totally misleading. This is an art film. I won't summarise the plot but it's confusing as hell. Ultimately I was completely baffled by the ending. I might have to watch it again, but can I bear it? This is like homework! Not sure I can manage to bring myself to watching it again. But do I impose it on an unsuspecting charity shop buyer?! lol
I Come With The Rain should come with an instruction manual! It's like IKEA made films - they arrive and you have to assemble them yourself.
his missing son.
'Kline' follows a thin-veil of clues in the search which takes his firstly to the Philippines,
where it was suggested 'Shitao' moved on to 'Hong Kong'
'Kline's investigation crosses the path of ruthless Gangland Boss 'Su Dongpo' (Bryung
-hun Lee) who's girlfriend 'Lili' (Tran Nu Ye'n-Khe') is a drug addict.
'Kline' has help from former colleague 'Meng Zi' (Shawn Yue) to show him around and
make introductions to people who might be of help.
'Shitao' (Takyua Kimura) devotes himself on the fringes of Hong Kong helping to heal
the sick, he has unusual power to do so, taking the illnesses on-board leaving the patient
free from what had ailed them, he takes it upon himself to help the troubled girlfriend of
'Kline' frequently reflects upon his last horrific investigation as an officer in the L.A.P.D.
where he had profiled serial-killer 'Hasford' (Elias Koteas) who's killing spree and what
he'd done with the corpses remain imprinted on 'Kline's' mind.
To return 'Shitao' back to his father, 'Kline' will now have to appeal to the Gangland Boss
to give up where he now is.
There are numerous sequences of graphic violence and gore, the plot however is muddled
and slow, i would struggle to take time-out to watch it again.....Art-house ?? - Maybe.

For many, 'I Come With The Rain' will be hard going and unrewarding. I was delighted to be shocked and surprised by its originality, its daring, the intensity of the performances and the beauty of the filming. At the same time, the casual violence is delivered in a matter of fact, bone-breakingly blunt manner. It's not meant to be glamorous, but still... the serial killer's human sculptures are weirdly compelling, not unlike HR Geiger's biomechanoid art.
The cinematography is gorgeous but static, and lingers on empty frames which contrast the Bladerunner vistas of high-tech Hong Kong with the ramshackle shantytowns of the homeless and hopeless. The plot weaves together the lives of a detective who became far too intimately involved with a serial killer he was hunting; a missing young man who may have been murdered but may also be a very special healer; a ganglord who cannot bear to be without his woman, and a superb supporting cast. The pace may be slow but every scene is important - the dialogue at times is vital in contributing to a modern interpretation of a pivotal set of beliefs. Pay attention: even the seemingly trivial moments are significant.
There is some action in the traditional sense in the shape of some fast car scenes and triad-style stand-offs, but all the tension comes from the slow crescendo of cruelty which pervades the film. It kicks off with explicit viciousness, and that sense of merciless malice is sustained throughout.
A film full of shadows, featuring some astonishing acting and a bold premise. Don't expect to understand all of it when you reach the end: you may want to watch it again in a while, to soak up more of the incidentals.
