Soon he learns that the restorer Karen believed he was a looter and hit him. Sheriff Mike Collins and Deputy Wayne Bryce go to investigate Tom' story while Officer Phil takes Karen out of the town by boat. However she escapes with the boat and goes to the church. Meanwhile Tom is trapped in the cell full of water and Karen rescues him. He decides to return to the armored truck to retrieve a shotgun but he is captured by Jim...Written by

Director Mikael Solomon was hired to direct this film based on his work on James Cameron's grueling filming of "The Abyss" in which most of the sets were in underwater tanks much like this film required. See more »
After the gun fight at the cemetery. Jim and Toms boat hits the top of the statue and causes damage to the outboard motor. So when they start of again you can see the motor waggling about. There is a short second only scene inserted, that shows no damage to the motor. Then it goes back to waggling again. See more »

You all right?
Yeah, I'm fine. I think the heater just kicked in.
At least we're out of the rain, right?
Oh, yeah. This is real cozy.

The Paramount mountain is seen in much worse weather than normal; the camera pans down from the logo to scenes of flooding. See more »
Hard Rain is all wet. Literally! Too much water and too little attention to telling a believable story. Since all but four characters are crooks, 'who shot who' quickly becomes unimportant amidst non-stop boat chases, chin -deep wading and a water level that never stops rising.
If you decide to watch this klinker, pack extra towels and don't be surprised if you skin turns a bit prune-like.
