Playlist: Ninja Assassin Star Rain

"He makes a good ninja," James McTeigue exclaims about Ninja Assassin star Rain.
Rain became the film's titular character fully. His performance is killer in more ways than one—becoming a full on action god in most scenes. Rain also put himself through hell to prepare for and play through those bombastic action sequences. "It was hard," he laughs with a smile.
It was worth all it though, as Ninja Assassin is one of the year's best action flicks. There's a distinctly kinetic musical style fueling the bloodlust. Rain showed ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino what he was listening to on set to get ready in this exclusive feature.
Check out the playlist below and don't miss Ninja Assassin in theaters this Wednesday November 25!
1. Wu-Tang Clan
Gangsta rap is the best music to chop someone up to. Before I was fighting, I heard Wu-Tang Clan—just everything [Laughs].
I'm also listening to my own music.
