Storyline

Mason Storm, a 'do 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

During the gunfight in the house Det. Sgt. Goodhart's rifle jams. In the next scene Mason shoots Det. Sgt. Goodhart. The person being shot is pictured in full frame in the following scene and is obviously the stunt double and not the actor portraying Det. Sgt. Goodhart. See more »

One of the greatest action movies ever filmed
2 June 1999 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Okay, so Die Hard is arguably the best action movie ever filmed. But Hard to Kill is arguably the second best action movie ever filmed. Steven Seagal's character went through so much anguish, seemingly losing everything he had. And then he beats the holy crap out of his enemies and nails the scum bag politician who was responsible for the whole thing. Nothing like sweet, sweet revenge. Seagal can be cheesy in other movies, but he kicked major butt in "Hard to Kill". You couldn't help but stand up and cheer.
