Detective Mason Storm gathers evidence against the Mob and its political supporters but unfortunately, he is being monitored secretly, and when his cover gets blown, he will be home invaded and left for dead. Seven years later, Storm unexpectedly recovers from his deep coma only to realise that he needs to finish what he started and finally get even. In the end, now that Storm is unstoppable, no one will deny him of his rightful and devastatingly violent retribution. Who can be a match for a dead man's fury? Written by Nick Riganas

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by 12 seconds to gain an '18' rating. The shotgun-in-the-mouth wardrobe scene was cut, as was the kick Seagal delivers to the face of the man with the snooker cue in his neck. The cut cinema version was submitted for the pan-and-scan video release in 1990. The previous cuts made to HARD TO KILL were restored for the 1999 video release (which came in a box set with cut versions of NICO (ABOVE THE LAW) and OUT FOR JUSTICE) and all DVD versions are also uncut.

My favorite of the Segal movies with three word titles.
24 February 2010 | by Aaron1375See 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.
