Storyline

Mason Storm, a 'go it alone' cop, is gunned down at home. The intruders kill his wife, and think they've killed both Mason and his son too. Mason is secretly taken to a hospital where he spends several years in a coma. His son meanwhile is growing up thinking his father is dead. When Mason wakes up, everyone is in danger - himself, his son, his best friend, his nurse - but most of all those who arranged for his death Written by Rob Hartill

Goofs

When escaping the ambush at the hideout, Mason drives the black jeep across a field (and crashes through a white pavilion) and one shot is flipped - you can see the bullet holes in the windscreen move around, and Mason at the wheel sitting on the wrong side of the car. See more »

My favorite of the Segal movies with three word titles.
24 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Yes, here he was "Hard to Kill", then he would be "Marked for Death" and finally "Out for Justice". I think there was another three titled movie before this one, but I did not see that one. This one had the best plot of the three that I saw, in fact the second one does not really have all that much plot and the third one made "Marked for Death" look like it had a super plot because it (Out for Justice) had no real plot to speak off. All three feature kick butt fighting that usually has Segal kicking some butt with little doubt who the victor is going to be. Which that makes for some pleasing watching the villain get beat up, but it kind of takes anyway any tension you might feel watching the film. However, this one features some gun play in it that adds to the film as would "Marked for Death". This one has Segal as a cop who records a deal that could really do damage to a guy. Well the guy sends some guys to gun down him and his family. However, while they are seemingly successful at killing the wife and child Segal's character ends up in a coma and when he wakes up they are promptly back on his heels. Well he uses some nifty healing tricks and soon is on the bad guys heels. Kelly LeBrock of "Weird Science" fame is in it and plays a nurse and this is like the only other movie that I have seen her in. Rather good, has nice action and is my favorite of the three movies I listed.
