Silly Hard Rain looks like it was filmed in a huge water tank
I never thought Morgan Freeman would do a movie just for a paycheck but I guess even famous rich actors have to pay their bills just like us regular folk. Hard Rain is a robbery movie that takes place in a small town during a massive flood. The plot goes all over the place with unnecessary twists and turns. You really get the feeling that "Rain" just ran out of steam and the writers made up stuff up as it went along. You also really feel sorry for the actors especially Freeman. To make matters worse, Oscar nominee Minnie Driver shows up a little later with a thankless role. Hard Rain was a January release back in 1998. Critics refer to these types of films as "January Junk." This critic just feels that movies like Hard Rain are "wet" behind the ears. Thumbs down.

Very, very good TV, although it was supposed to be a major motion picture.
Plays like a really high quality 80s or 90s made-for-TV movie, which still makes it much better than most major motion pictures in theaters today. Pretty solid action throughout with the obligatory twists. As is usual for films of this nature, it degenerates towards the end as the action overwhelms the plot, but not nearly as badly as most, so I'll forgive it that.

What I was really left wondering, was how exactly they filmed this production. Sure, it was obvious that there was some special effects stuff done with models, but likewise it seems very clear that they must have actually constructed huge sets and flooded them for much of the filming. I would really like to know more about how they did it, so I'll probably try to google this film later to try to get to the bottom of this movie's magic.

Summarizing this experience, I would say, certainly nothing great, but definitely no regrets about spending the time and that's not really that bad in my book.

lots of twists
I was trying to get ready to go to work when I caught this one on the T.V. It kept my attention, for sure, I liked the chase and the changing of the bad guys vs good guys roles. I'd watch it again. Nice to see Randy Quaide in a serious role for a change.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water... on the street
Hard Rain... a film about a heist during the worst rain you can imagine all the while a dam is bursting. What does that make? A heck of a lot of water, mainly. I don't believe there has been as much water in any other recent blockbuster, except for probably The Day After Tomorrow. As such, the water seems to take over for everything else in the film. No threat in the film is treated with as much respect as the water. The plot isn't given much thought. It does makes sense, though... just barely, at least. The pacing seems off, or maybe it's just that the film is terribly boring. It never seems to do anything; nothing ever happens. And what does happen is not that exciting. I saw most of it coming a mile away. The film is terribly predictable in general. The acting isn't impressive, save for maybe Freeman. Slater is awful, as usual. Realism seems to have been thrown out the window before the first line of the script was written, or even conceived. The film has a few chase scenes and a shootout or two, but most of it is so unimaginatively done or poorly filmed that it doesn't really elicit any emotion from the viewer. There's not really any memorable scenes or quotable lines of dialog in the film... it will hardly be remembered more than half a minute past the end credits, not even by the most fanatic fans of anyone involved in the film. What can I say... it's just not particularly impressive of a film. I recommend this only to people who will go for any movie, even if it's completely pointless. 5/10

Above average action film, that has it's exciting moments here and there, with solid performances and a decent story
This is an above average action film, that has it's exciting moments here and there, with solid performances and a decent story. All the characters are good enough, and the setting was certainly unusual, plus Christian Slater and Morgan Freeman are simply amazing in this!. It actually does have a couple of good little twists, and while the boat chases are exciting, I just felt it could have been a lot better, plus Randy Quid did a great job here. There is one tense scene where Slater is trapped in a cell in water, and all that rain definitely gave it some creepy atmosphere at times, plus Freeman's presence definitely helps. Slater and Minnie Driver had decent chemistry together, and I also liked the music in it as well, plus the finale was pretty exciting too. it's a perfect time waster, if your looking for something to watch that will at least keep you entertained, and all the characters are pretty likable as well, plus it's well made and decently written in my opinion. This is an above average action film, that has it's exciting moments here and there, with solid performances and a decent story, and I say it's well worth the watch. The Direction is good. Mikael Salomon does a good job here with good camera work, solid angles, adding some good atmosphere and keeping the film at a fast enough pace. The Acting is very solid. Christian Slater is amazing as always, and is amazing here, he is extremely likable, very charismatic, had a cool character, also had some good scenes with Freeman, and proves he can be a good action star when needed to be, he also had a couple of cool one liners! (Slater Rules!!!!!). Morgan Freeman is also amazing as always and is amazing here, sure he was just looking for a paycheck, but he gave it his all, and as always had tons of presence, and was especially cool at the end (Freeman Rules!!!!!!!). Randy Quaid is pretty good here, and had a very mysterious character, as the Sheriff, I'm not a big fan, but he was very good here. Minnie Driver is cute, and does fine with what she had to do I rather liked her. Edward Asner is good in his scenes as Uncle Charlie. Betty White is amusing in her role I liked her. Rest of the cast do fine. Overall well worth the watch. *** out of 5

"Hard Rain" of awful discredit..
Hard Rain is something different than your average disaster movie. It takes place in a small town in Indiana. Where remaining survivors are scavenging to save what they have left before the flood. And when two "armor truck guard" buddies are in center of a plot to heist the armor truck for 3 million dollars. All heck becomes a desperate plan to survive for Hale(Christian Slater) when a crew of hired arms lead by Jim(Morgan Freeman) who have mistakenly sidetracked their plan and have to chase him through the flood of the entire town...

Lots of action, thrills, and some surprisingly amazing acting from Randy Quaid as the sheriff. Along with cast as Mini Driver, Christian Slater, Ed Asner, and of course Morgan Freeman.. One of my top favorites and a enjoyable movie..

Satisfactory. but this should have been more fun
As a movie with water, lots and lots and water, it's actually not that bad. But as a typical action picture, it's got villains that aren't mean enough, and don't seem quite determined enough (to get what they want, that is) for this movie to be something truly exciting. It's nice to see Morgan Freeman playing a bad guy, but he smiles a couple times (and I'm not talking about evil smiles), which is kind of a cheat. Give the characters a little more personality, ratchet the suspense a little, speed up the action, and this could have been a top-notch movie. And aside from comic relief, the two elderly characters (one of them played by Betty White), are unnecessary.

*** out of ****

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.

Too much action, for nothing
Too much water in there, and too much action. Action is good I think but the whole movie is pointless, ie. with no real point, or message if you prefer. Simply waste of time!

Action & Humour In Drenched Heist Thriller
In Mikael Salomon's "Hard Rain", a natural disaster, a heist and a sheriff who goes rogue, are just a few of the problems that an armoured truck driver has to contend with when he tries to prevent $3 million in cash from getting into the wrong hands. His incident-packed story is told at high speed with shoot-outs, chases and explosions featuring at various junctures as well as bullets, boats and betrayals providing further dangers. There's also absolutely no let-up in the level of threat that he's under as he gets pursued by two very determined groups of men who are prepared to do whatever it takes in order to steal the loot and eliminate any witnesses.

When the small town of Huntingburg, Indiana is hit by a torrential rainstorm and the floodwater starts to rise at an alarming speed, armoured truck drivers Tom (Christian Slater) and his Uncle Charlie (Edward Asner) are instructed to collect all the cash held at the town's banks as a matter of urgency. After completing their collections and starting to make their way back out of town, the truck gets stuck in a flooded section of road and Charlie makes a radio call to inform the National Guard. Almost immediately, they get ambushed by a gang of four men, one of whom shoots and kills Charlie. Tom then manages to escape with the bags of money which he subsequently hides in a cemetery.

The gang, which is led by Jim (Morgan Freeman), pursues Tom until he gives them the slip and hides out in a local church. There, he gets knocked unconscious by a woman named Karen (Minnie Driver) who, after having mistaken him for a looter, takes him to the sheriff's office. Sheriff Mike Collins (Randy Quaid) believes Tom's account of what had happened, but as a precaution, locks him up in a cell until his story can be checked out. The sheriff and his deputies continue to try to ensure that all the townsfolk are evacuated safely but Karen escapes from the deputy who'd been instructed to escort her away from danger and instead goes back to the church (which she'd been restoring), to fill the pumps.

Soon the huge dam that overlooks Huntingburg is no longer able to fully retain all its water and Karen rescues Tom from drowning in his cell in the unattended sheriff's office. The two of them then team up to try and get away from the extreme danger they're in from the flood and Jim's gang and the sheriff (who's bitter about not being re-elected to his post in the recent election) decide to steal the $3 million and kill anyone who gets in their way.

This movie's special effects, cinematography and well-directed action sequences are all highly impressive and the acting performances are also good. The sheer pace of the action ensures that the interest-level remains high throughout and there are also some humorous moments to enjoy. "Hard Rain" isn't the kind of movie that would stand up well to repeat viewings but is nevertheless, full of action that's exciting and fun to watch.
