Trivia

Was filmed with the title "Seven Year Storm" and publicized in several trade magazines with that name. Warner Bros. decided to re title the finished pic "Hard to Kill" to make it sound more like a slam-bang action film. See more »

Steven Seagal is hard to kill
19 December 1999 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Once again, Steven Seagal plays a cop, and this could have been the sequel to Above The Law(his first film). Steven Seagal is Mason Storm, and is gunned down with his family in 1984, after having taped a famous person discussing murder. However, Mason doesn`t die that easily, and he wakes up from his coma 6 years later. He escapes from the hospital, falls in love with his nurse, and begins hunting down the people who killed his family. The storyline in this movie is pretty basic Seagal-stuff: brotherhood, revenge etc. Overall a very entertaining movie, and the fight scenes are well fought by martial-art master Steven Seagal. 8/10
