A teaser trailer touting its original title, The Flood, was released months before its original May 2, 1997 release date. However, the film was delayed till January 1998, not only allowing for more time in post-production but an overhaul in the film's marketing campaign. As the disaster movie had found renewed interest in the late 90's with films such as Twister (1996) and Dante's Peak (1997), Paramount wanted to differentiate the now-retitled Hard Rain from those by focusing new trailers on the action and crime elements rather than the storm at the center of the plot.

During gunfights between Jim, Tom and the police, Jim and Tom have one revolver and one semi-automatic handgun between the two of them. Yet, they seem to have an endless supply of bullets, with no apparent access to extra bullets. In fact, Tom retrieves his gun from one of the dead robbers, but not the bullets. Also, we never see either Jim or Tom reloading their guns from their supposed endless supply of bullets. See more »
I'm going to row back there and see if he will shoot you. Or me. It's fine either way.

The Paramount mountain is seen in much worse weather than normal; the camera pans down from the logo to scenes of flooding. See more »
This is a great film that should have made a bigger splash at the box office. It really isn't just another run of the mil action flick. It's more of a natural disaster meets crime movie; which make for an awesomely unique story with one of a kind scenes to take place. Christian Slater dominates the screen as he does best; I only wish he was still leading man material instead of getting bit roles. I do admit there are times when you know what's going to happen before it does but you do still get some great surprises in there. I love the humor, there is a lot of it but they don't go over the top with it to where you can't take the movie serious. Big thumbs up for this underrated film. Love it!!
