Time Out says

Miike's crush on Taiwan runs wild in this location-shot thriller about a yakuza hitman working for a triad gang boss in Taipei. Yuji (Aikawa) is in his bare apartment being cool and moody when an ex-girlfriend barges in to dump a boy she says is his son; the kid is left to fend for himself in the alley outside, and discovers what daddy does only when he tags along and sees Yuji shoot someone. The minimal plot is fleshed out by everyone's favourite Taiwanese character actors (including two of Hou Xiaoxian's original Boys from Fengkuei), and it never stops raining. Not only the definitive bad-parenting movie but also very likely the coolest rainsoaked lonely hitman movie ever made.
