It’s been ages since we heard anything from Vietnamese director Anh Hung Tran’s crime noir thriller “I Come with the Rain”. Maybe the producers are waiting for Josh Harnett, the film’s star to suddenly become a wanted commodity again, or maybe they’re waiting for “G.I. Joe” to blow up so they can promote co-star Byung-hun Lee. Whatever the case, this thing has been delayed for at least a full year now, and there’s no signs yet when it’ll finally hit theaters, although there is a 2009 release date for a Japan release.
Ex-Los Angeles cop turned private eye Kline travels to Hong Kong in search of Shitao, the missing son of a Chinese billionaire. Enlisting Meng Zi a friend and a former colleague now working for the Hong Kong Police, Kline follows a faint trail left by the ethereal Shitao. The path leads to local gangster Su Dongpo and his beautiful, drug addicted girlfriend Lili. But Kline is distracted from his search, haunted by memories of the serial killer Hasford whose ‘body of work’ was the reason Kline quit the police force. Will Kline once again need to lose his mind to find his latest quarry?
Starring Josh Hartnett, Byung-hun Lee, Elias Koteas, Simón Andreu, Takuya Kimura, Shawn Yue, Eusebio
