seemed like the director got lost while making this film. I was let down and a little sad, I wanted more of the novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excrutiating Boredom Punctuated by Ridiculous Overacting.... June 27 2010
By The Jaundiced Eye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a Japanese movie with American subtitles. Gary Oldman is inserted to fool the U. S. audience into renting/buying it, and he then proceeds to reward his few remaining fans by shrieking, bellowing, and generally overacting to an embarrassing degree. The plot is incomprehensible, the dialog utterly pointless and boring, the action scenes (probably the only part that could have been entertaining) are poorly choreographed, and the acting is universally stiff and awful. On the bright side, the photography is well done, but who cares, when nothing photographed is worth watching. I dozed off repeatedly during the viewing ordeal, and was rudely awakened by the explosively loud noises accompanying most scene changes, no doubt inserted by the director/editor for this exact purpose. I have no idea how it all ended, since I stopped my suffering after about 90 minutes, hit the "eject" button, and wrote this review as a warning to others: Do not waste your time or money on this awful movie. One star is too generous. It is unwatchable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, terrible movie. June 22 2010

Barry Eisler's book was great. All of his John Rain books are terrific. This movie was really bad. Very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's going on? May 26 2010
By ERL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was highly anticpating this movie. I have read all of Barry Eisler's books and totally enjoyed the John Rain character. I was disappointed that this movie was coming out in Japan and not in the US. Luckily, before I purchased the movie I rented it last night. Maybe it's because it's a movie made in Japan that I had trouble following the story line. I had trouble following who was who and I had read the book. If not for that I don't think I would have had any idea what was happening. There were two key things I really liked in the book - John Rain liked scotch and jazz. In this movie he never drank and they only reference jazz because the female lead plays jazz piano. What's going on? Rent it don't buy it!!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a Dog of a Movie! July 17 2010
By BrKaT818 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of Barry Eisler and have enthusiastically read the entire John Rain series. Couldn't wait for the movie. What an incredibly disappointing letdown. The movie destroyed the book in every possible way. For starters, anyone who hasn't read the book would find it near impossible to follow the storyline or understand John Rain's underlying background (critical to the entire series) and modus operandi. I suppose the director assumed everyone had already read the novel.

John Rain is known as a "shadow" assassin for hire. "Shadow" because he is able to clandestinely operate throughout society with almost ghost-like stealth. The director must have taken "shadow" literally and shot the film in near darkness. It was hard to visually see (not just watch) the movie.

The pace of the film was molasses-like. Painfully slow. The director replaced most of the book's action sequences with insipid meaningless mood-setting (mood-killing) dialogue. The best scene was at the end where John Rain goes into a biker-bar (something not in the original novel) where some good ass-kicking is about to happen. Great buildup and just before the anticipated action is about to unfold......the film ends.

I could go on but I am just grateful that I chose to rent the movie instead of purchasing it. Wish I had skipped it entirely so as not to diminish my great respect for the series. Barry Eisler must not have had veto authority (or any say whatsoever) when he sold the movie rights. I'm betting that all of the 1-star reviews are from fans who first read the book then had the misfortune to watch the movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible movie July 8 2010
By lexx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a warning of not buying or even seeing the movie. If there is a minus star I would have given it. The movie has about 5 % of the book. Lousy acting, lousy story, lousy romance. The Rain character can barely speak English! Tatsu look like a homeless person. So disappointed.
