What the hell?!! Where do I even start?!!

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.

Wow!

Ex-L.A Cop 'Kline' (Josh Hartnett) now a 'Private Eye' is hired by a Billionaire to find
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
'Su Dongpo'
'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.
Features -
* Behind the scenes footage and interviews
* U.K Theatrical Trailer.

If you're searching for a Saturday night action flick, then keep looking: 'I Come With The Rain' may be a blood-soaked and brutal slice of contemporary Eastern life but it's filmed with the patient precision of art cinema. It's definitely not a typical Josh Hartnett movie. Similarly, the extreme violence and set-to-stun levels of soundtrack will repel many arthouse enthusiasts. So I'm guessing that this film will appeal to a limited audience; there can't be many of us who will revel in a mash-up of Hannibal Lecter, Asian ganglands and the ultimate revelation of Christianity...

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.
8/10

I can pretty much watch anything, but I had to turn this off. The acting is pretty bad - Josh Hartnett not the least...the cinematography/direction is a joke, the dialogue is poor, the plot is all over the place. The special effects are laughable.
Not much more I can say about it then. I bought it to give Josh a 2nd chance, since I don't like him very much, but he was reasonably funny in "Hollywood Homicicde" along superstar Harrison Ford (and I will add, it's not Harry's best work by a long shot) but this is worse, much worse.

It says on the cover that this DVD is 115 minutes. However, I'm not sure this is correct as it felt like it went on for about 2 weeks, while the mantra 'Please hurry up and finish' repeated in my mind. Is this Josh Hartnett's best film, as the blurb boasts? Well that's not exactly setting the bar very high. There are obvious allusions to Blade Runner and Silence of the Lambs and themes of the modern painter Francis Bacon are included in the form of the serial-killer-cum-sculptor's grisly reconstructed corpses. One such sculpture is a virtual reforming of Bacon's 'Studies for Three Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion' and, together with another character's Christ-like resurrection, gives a tedious quasi religious theme which is used to justify the pretensions of the director, who otherwise would have no plot. Having said that, if you liked Only God Forgives, then you might find something in the detached violence and glowing asian panoramas that this has to offer.

This movie is really only for those who are great fan of Josh Hartnett. Otherwise, it's kinda disappointing; very weak cinematography & weird plot. It's a dark film. Hopefully, Josh Hartnett is going to show his talents in other somewhat uplifting and better produced films.
