Following up on a lead, L.A. 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
Warner Bros. demanded for movie to be heavily cut and re-edited down to 90 minutes long running time in order to be more straightforward and fast paced movie and to have more theatrical screenings. Same type of re-editing also happened to other Steven Seagal movies that he made for Warner Bros. Some scenes were cut while some others, including parts of the plot, were deleted, which is why movie suffers from bad editing in certain parts. Some of the scenes which were deleted during re-editing are; Original opening scene between Storm and his wife and son, Trent's men interrogate and kill Andy's black nurse friend, longer deleted part of the movie where Storm's son Sonny is kidnapped by Trent's men but manages to escape, O'Malley's funeral scene, and more dialogue between characters in many other scenes. Reportedly, alternate ending was also filmed where Storm kills Trent and says "Take that to the bank". Storm is shown saying this line in theatrical trailer, which indicates that there indeed was alternate ending where Trent dies. See more »
The fireplace poker near the end of the movie loses its top after one swing, then reappears in the next cut as the bad guy charges Storm. Additionally, the poker starts out with a brushed or dull finish when first seen, then when Trent tries to attack Mason with it, it's brightly polished. See more »
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.
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.
