For fans of Michael Rooker and Eric Roberts only ..........
I am not aware of another film that stars Michael Rooker and Eric Roberts together, so that alone makes "The Hard Truth" something their fans might want to see. The acting by Rooker and Roberts is acceptable. Unfortunately Lysette Anthony is also in the movie, and her acting is not even close to average. As the female love interest involved in a safe heist with Rooker and Roberts, her smarmy character drags heavily on this marginal neo-noir. Also worth mentioning, Anthony's three (count them three)love scenes with Rooker which are totally unconvincing. Other than a prolonged chase in the beginning, and a somewhat twisty finale there is little here to like. - MERK
