HARD RAIN (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Hard Rain—
C-grade film—that, despite an all-star cast of Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater, Randy Quaid, Minnie Driver, and Edward Asner, ends as ‘just another heist’ flick. Watch for Betty White in the film.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie is one of Christian Slater’s later works. Randy Quaid, Morgan Freeman, and Edward Asner lend quality to the storyline. There are some good action scenes like racing jet skis through flooded buildings and a stained-glass church window that provide interesting viewing.
