Well-Made Action Movie
All I can say about Hard Rain is awesome. There were plenty of action sequences. I could watch it over and over and it won't get boring. Betty White and Richard A. Dysart had hilarious roles as the old couple. Overall I say 8 out of 10.

Inventive action, but not a lot more
This is a great new twist on a standard heist story. The difference in this standard formula is that the town it takes place in is almost deserted and up to it's armpits in water flooding. As has already been said here, it's the cracking jet ski action shots that makes this film float to the surface in a sea of mindless action flicks.

Slater is, well, Slater. Driver is the token female, although she plays a strong character (lovely she is too!) but Freeman wins by a length on this one. When you first see him you think he's the usual protective good character, that turns about port quick enough, and it's fantastically refreshing to see him like this - what an excellent baddie he plays. Mind you, you can't keep him away from his good guy roots for long.

An okay film if you want to switch off and let the entertainment wash over you. Just watch all that boat action.

An insult to disaster movies.
I tried to watch this film without counting the inconsistencies but gave up on the whole contrived mess after about 45 minutes. So, here we go; Why did the bank decide to move the cash on such a night? Didn't they read the weather forecast? Do whole populations in America leave town without any kind of security and how come they saw the weather forecast but the National Guard didn't? Why was every light in town left on? How did the gang know about the movement of cash but the police didn't? Why did the security guards get lost so quickly? Why was a psychopath included in the gang? How did the gang know in which direction the guard had gone? How did such a moron get a job as a deputy? Surely the guard would be required to carry his I.D. at all times? Are all jails in America so easy to get into? Do all female art restorers carry a Swiss army knife? How come all the doors inside the college were open, making it convenient for a speedboat chase, but the emergency panic-bar ones were locked? How did the water rise so fast and so selectively without flowing and how did it stay so clean? Why didn't Morgan Freeman and Christian Slater read the scripts before getting involved with this turkey? I know the makers of this film didn't want it to be just another disaster movie but instead they have churned out a disaster of a movie.

Water and Greed
In Huntingburg, the armored truck with three million dollars driven by Tom (Christian Slater) and his Uncle Charlie (Edward Asner) gets stuck in the flooding and realizes that the town has been evacuated since the dam does not have capacity to hold the storm. While waiting for the National Guard, they are attacked by Jim (Morgan Freeman) and his gang formed by Kenny (Michael Goorjian), Mr. Mehlor (Dann Florek) and Ray (Ricky Harris) and the clumsy Kenny kills Charlie. Tom flees with the bags of money and hides them in the cemetery. Then he is hunted down by Jim and his gang and he hides in a church. Out of the blue, he is knocked out and awakes locked in a cell. Soon he learns that the restorer Karen (Minnie Driver) believed he was a looter and hit him. Sheriff Mike Collins (Randy Quaid) and Deputy Wayne Bryce (Mark Rolston) go to investigate Tom' story while Officer Phil (Peter Murnik) takes Karen out of the town by boat. However she escapes with the boat and goes to the church. Meanwhile Tom is trapped in the cell full of water and Karen rescues him. He decides to return to the armored truck to retrieve a shotgun but he is captured by Jim and his men and learns that Charlie was part of the gang. He tries to retrieve the hidden money for the gang, but Sheriff Collins and his men have already taken it. Soon Tom learns that the Sheriff wants to keep the money for him and his men and Tom and Karen are witnesses and he teams up with Jim.

"Hard Rain" is a combination of disaster genre with crime and action. Despite the negative reviews, the action scenes are spectacular, the cast is excellent and the plot has a great twist based on the ancient proverb "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Tempestade" ("Storm")

Hometown letdown
This movie had a special interest for me because it was partially filmed in my hometown, Huntingburg, Indiana; pronounced Huntin'burg in the movie. That, and the fact that Morgan Freeman was in it, was what pulled me through the movie. This script was not exactly "Shawshank" or "Miss Daisy" material for Freeman. In fact, this was down there on the level of Chain Reaction type stuff for Freeman.

Although, I think this movie is not worth seeing twice, it did have some goodies for a one-timer. Out of all the notable actors/actresses in it, Randy Quaid gave the most entertaining performance. Certainly nothing deserving of an Oscar, but then again the part did not call for it.

Minnie Driver's character annoyed me most of the time, as does most of her characters. Slater did okay. I still like him best in "Interview with a Vampire."

However, the best parts were the parts where I could see my hometown's main street flooded and boarded up. Coincidentally, "A League of Thier Own," was also the filming location for the Peach's home stadium. That movie was much better. As was HBO's "Soul of the Game," which was filmed in the same stadium as "League."

If you are from Huntingburg then "Hard Rain" is worth seeing. If not, then I would rent that one with Mel Gibson in it about a flood. Not as much action in that one, but a better plot.

great action movie with great special effects!!
This movie is about a truck been robbed during a flood. The drivers are played Christian Slater and Edward Asner. Morgan Freeman wants the money. Both Slater and Freeman play cat and mouse though out the movie. Also the local sheriff get word of the money. Eventually it ends up in all out war. While all this going on, the local dam is about to burst. The special effects are great. The action is none stop. Betty White and some one else stars as two people who stayed behind during the flood. This movie is great if you like action movies,lots of special effects. Overall, it a great action with a fast plot and loads of fun!!This movie was written by Graham Yost(writer of Speed,Chill Factor, and Broken Arrow). I also forget to mention that it's raining during the whole movie!!

Just a decent saturday night's entertainment.
Hard Rain rates alongside most average 90's action flicks. Though, Speed, Face/Off and The Matrix are miles better, there are a few points that make Hard Rain more watchable than most. First off, you've got Morgan Freeman; not an amazing performance but good enough! Christian Slater plays the same role in Broken Arrow, which is fine. But what makes this film better than average is the action! The church scene is very good, slightly John Woo (ish) but isn't over violent or stupid. The production employed this neat trick of when ever a gun is fired, the camera shakes for a moment - this might not seem much, but adds a bit of realism and adrenaline to the action. Above all, a very solid 7/10 film.

For Action Junkies Only!
Hard Rain is not an awful movie, but then again it's not a very good one either. This film would certainly make action fans happy because of the film it is. It's loud, dumb, and features non-stop action. There's not a story in sight as all we get is people shooting at each other or people almost drowning. But, this was relatively entertaining and I had a good time, but I don't know if I would watch this again.

Mikael Salomon's film is about this town that got flooded by a dam and en route away from town, an armored truck driver named Tom and his Uncle Charlie is robbed by a gang led by Jim who want the entire money that they are carrying in the truck. But what Jim doesn't realize is how resourceful Tom is.

The acting is really nothing special. Morgan Freeman as always does a good job, but I thought he was miscast. He has such a nice man persona to effectively carry this role out. Christian Slater does an okay job, even though this is very similar to his role in Broken Arrow. I was pretty annoyed with the Sheriff and his gang which was played by Randy Quaid.

Overall, if you're looking for a dumb, wet action movie, Hard Rain is for you. It's not a great movie, but it can be used as an escapist film, but just barely. The screenplay sinks, but the action itself is able to float. There were some mildly impressive set pieces, so I'll give the film credit for that. I rate this film 7/10.

Give me a towel, please.
Hard Rain is all wet. Literally! Too much water and too little attention to telling a believable story. Since all but four characters are crooks, 'who shot who' quickly becomes unimportant amidst non-stop boat chases, chin -deep wading and a water level that never stops rising.

If you decide to watch this klinker, pack extra towels and don't be surprised if you skin turns a bit prune-like.

suspend disbelief, all ye who enter here
I am totally ambivalent about this movie. I had seen it years ago and had no distinct memories of it, but I watched it again last night and had two contradictory reactions. First, the movie, at one level, is ridiculous. The number of credibility-straining moments borders on the absurd. The intention of the movie makers seemed to have been to proceed as quickly as possible from one action moment to the next, and never to relax the suspense for even a moment. Then my other reaction: SO WHAT? At the time I was in the mood for a movie that would completely take my mind off other things, and this one sure did, even if at was at the point of finding humor at the plot situations. The movie also had the good sense to make fun of itself, inserting a generous number of laugh lines. It was also nice to have the charming little sub-plot with Betty White (God bless her) and Richard Dysart. Interesting to see Ed Asner. I thought that this must have been one of his last flicks, but found that the old leftie is still working at the age of 87. Morgan Freeman is always good to watch, as is Randy Quaid.

Sometimes a good old mindless action film is just what you need. This is definitely one of them.
