1999 was a good year! April 2007 - Looking back at Red Rain (1999), I feel that writer and director James Yuen Sai-Sang has done better work. Previously, Id seen his Rumble Ages and Your Place or Mine! from 1998 and enjoyed them immensely. Red Rain is bogged down in a sort of genre de-construction that achieves mixed results. The film is saved by Alex Fong Chung-San who gives the director a compelling performance.
