Movies with terrific rain scene?

Most of us love the rain, it sorta brings in a refreshing mood, but in certain movies I love it. What are some of your favorite rain scenes in movies that you remember? Here are some of mine:

1) Bladerunner - Terrific rain scene
2) Pointbreak - Keanu Reeves and Patrict Swayze at the end at the beach.
3) Cyborg - Van Damme final scene fight
4) Underworld - Kate Beckinsale jumping from the roof in the beginning.

Re: Movies with terrific rain scene?

First one that came to mind was the excellent rain scene in 'Hero'(as close to a perfect movie as is humanly possible) in the fight with Jet Li/Donnie Yen. What an amazing piece of film making that scene is.

Rather iconic scene in 'Shawshank Redemption'.

'Raising Arizona' has a hell of good rain scene.

yes, it's quite memorable! even though it's only about a minute and has no real importance to the film
