ALL MUST BEWARE THE "HARD RAIN"! - 1998 WATER DISASTER THRILLER WILL HAVE YOU IN SHEER HORROR

Neither reviews nor time has been kind to this one. Despite the uniqueness of the production design
and a good cast, this flick has been pummeled for almost two decades now.  Misguided and shallow (no pun intended heheh,) it's too bad they can't go back and recut this thing as well as beef up the script. Minnie Driver is spot-on as usual and one of the flick's more redeeming values. This is one I would love to see someone do a Fan Edit on, but for the meantime we'll go ahead and award Hard Rain the paltry Two Pinewoods it deserves....The Horror!!

Hard Rain Movie Review & Film Summary (1998) | Roger Ebert

"Hard Rain" is one of those movies that never convince you its stories are really happening. From beginning to end, I was acutely aware of actors being paid to stand in cold water. Suspension of my disbelief in this case would have required psychotropic medications. Oh, the film is well-made from a technical viewpoint.

Hard Rain (1998)

Directed by: Mikael Salomon Starring: Christian Slater, Morgan Freeman, Minnie Driver, Randy Quaid, Ed Asner, Richard Dysart, Betty White One could argue that Hard Rain shouldn't be called a disaster movie because, plotwise, the disaster is incidental to the heist thriller.

THE HORROR!!
