A Weather forecast: rain. Action forecast: Hard Rain, the torrential, excitement-swept thriller featuring a screenplay from the writer of Speed and the on-screen talents of Morgan Freeman (Deep Impact), Christian Slater (Broken Arrow), Randy Quaid (Independence Day) and Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting). The setting is the food-ravaged, evacuated town of Huntingburg, where armored car driver Tom (Slater) is in deep danger. A gang of thieves (led by Freeman) figures the flood is its chance to heist the $3 million Tom's transporting from local banks. But there's one thing the gun-carrying criminals don't count on - Tom. Come hell, high water or both, he's determined to deliver the money entrusted to him. But before he does, he'll have to survive a relentless pursuit filled with close calls, ever-rising waters, uncertain loyalties and heart-stopping heroics.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all the talent and effort involved, ''Hard Rain'' turns out to be routine entertainment.
Rotten: The flood rises, the night grows murky, and it becomes clear that the more water there is on screen, the less room there is for anything of interest to happen.
Rotten: Virtually nothing that takes place here is believable for a moment, beginning with the idea that all these people would expend all their energies trying to shoot one another when they are so imperiled to begin with.
Rotten: Asner, the film's strongest presence, exits early.
Fun, late night watch ...
Watched it at 11PM, and thought it was a helluva a lot of fun. It's pure cheese, but when it's late at night, and in the mood for a little mindless entertainment, Hard Rain certainly fits the bill. Give it a shot.
First say this movie when it came out, I was away at college. I love the story and the cast. I love a good action movie, which I love. I would definitely recommend.
