After a troubled production this film was given very little publicity by the studio and bombed at the cinemas in 1997, which is a huge shame because it is a cracking film.
The good news is that now you can enjoy this little gem of a movie in HD on blu-ray! Picture and audio quality are surprisingly good too.
Penned by the guy that wrote several other 90's action blockbusters such as Speed and Broken Arrow, Hard Rain is a by the book heist story with a few unexpected twists. Plus the added novelty that the entire story takes place during a serious flood event, which allows for some highly unique and exciting action sequences that are very well executed. It is a crying shame that there are no extras on the disk as it would have been very interesting to see how they achieved some of the shots and created such a convincing flood!
If you haven't seen this one before and you appreciate a good action film then you are in for a real treat, if you are already a fan then this blu-ray transfer is surprisingly good and well worth seeing.
