Storyline

In the tradition of such films as "Billy Jack", "The Seven Samurai", and "Electra Glide in Blue", "The Rain Makers" is the story about a rag tag group of unique individuals who reluctantly come together to protect the weak from the unscrupulous criminals trying to oppress them. Set in and around a small Arizona town in the year 1973, this tale revolves around a commune called the Freedom Preserve. It's occupants, mostly hippies, peaceniks, and artists, have all turned their back on a society and government in turmoil over the war in Vietnam. They have created their own Utopia and try to maintain a peaceful existence with the local residents. Their efforts, however, are unsuccessful. The townspeople despise them and the local law harasses them every chance they get. When a real estate developer attempts to steal their land from them, they find themselves without allies. The members of the Freedom Preserve refuse to give up their commune and property, and suddenly find themselves being ... Written by Ellingsen, Ray

"Walking Small"....suddenly it's the 1970s again.........ah me!
26 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To bring back the Vietnam era in a 2005 movie seems like a sure misfire, and that theory is confirmed by "The Rain Makers". The film lacks a lot, including credibility. The hippie talk is so outdated, younger viewers might need an interpreter. The motive behind all the violence is ridiculous, and the subplots are even worse. What you wind up with is crooked sheriffs, bikers, Indians, Vietnam vets, and hippies all involved in cartoon-like gun play and martial arts. There simply is zero meaning, and the whole thing deteriorates with each passing minute. Nevertheless, with all that said, the movie does entertain in a curious kind of way, and Jake Busey is so over the top, that you have to admire his performance. - MERK
