Fighting, whether fist to fist or thousands of swords upon thousands of swords, takes on a whole new life of its own in the rain. Everything becomes more urgent, more uncertain, more suspenseful. Some of the most iconic on-screen show downs have happened in the rain, from television’s Lost to the unforgettable Matrix Revolutions and Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
