This week on GMP, Ben Begley and Josh Macuga break down Hard Rain!!!!! Hard Rain (also known as The Flood) is a 1998 American/British action thriller film, produced by Mark Gordon, written by Graham Yost (the writer-producer team also behind the film Speed) and directed by former cinematographer turned director Mikael Salomon. It stars Christian Slater, Morgan Freeman, Randy Quaid, Minnie Driver and Ed Asner. The plot centers on a heist and man-made treachery amidst a natural disaster in a small Indiana town. The tagline is “A simple plan. An instant fortune. Just add water.” The film received negative reviews and was a box office bomb in the United States, but fared better overseas and had good video sales. The film is also noteworthy for its use of the song “Flood” by the Christian rock group Jars of Clay, which launched the band into the mainstream music scene.
