In the film, which is based on the first in a series of six novels by American author Barry Eisler, Shiina plays a half-Japanese assassin named John Rain who’s forced to serve as bodyguard to the daughter of one of his victims (Hasegawa) who is thought to hold the key to exposing high-level governmental corruption. Rain is a former member of the U.S. Special Forces. While serving in Vietnam, he was betrayed by a man who later became the head of CIA operations in Tokyo, William Holtzer (Oldman). With nowhere to run, Rain depends on a trustworthy former adversary and Keisatsucho agent named Tatsu (Akira Emoto) when he needs guidance.
“Rain Fall” opens in Japan on April 25, 2009 in Japan.comments powered by Disqus
