A noble effort with strong performances by Moorman and Waite.
21 July 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Hard, although somewhat flawed, is a noble effort by the director. It is beautifully shot and edited. The story is compelling until about 3/4 of the way through when, for me, it no longer seemed believable. The performance of Malcom Moorman, as Jack the serial killer, is, for the most part, chillingly convincing. And Michael Waite gives a wonderfully touching portrayal of the child-like Andy, the guy Jack moves in with.
