Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's big, dumb, noisy, and teeming with idiotic dialogue, yet the finished feature has a certain merry swagger about it that keeps everything motoring right along, and the hook of the film is immaculately presented."
‑ Brian Orndorf, DVDTalk.com
"A surprisingly enjoyable thriller."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"I cannot help but think that maybe the film would have been better off being either a disaster film or an action film instead of the uneven blend that plays out onscreen."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"If you were Noah, you'd probably want to sink the ark before you'd care to spend time wading through this waterlogged effort."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Overall, HARD RAIN is the kind of film that most people will see, enjoy, and forget five minutes later... entirely adequate."
‑ Moriarty, Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
"Yes, even the great Morgan Freeman is fallable."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Fantastica Daily
"Goes down like a rock--only slowly."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"...while it's no Speed, Hard Rain is a suitably diverting way to spend an hour and a half."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Great opening shot that leads to an action flick that's all wet."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"although the title was changed from 'The Flood' to 'Hard Rain' - supposedly to more accurately reflect the film's content, if you can believe that - a better choice might have been 'Total Washout.'"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Graham Yost's script serves up one cliche after another for the actors, who thankfully managed to mumble quite a few of the lines."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Gobs of gooey fun..."
‑ Eric Lurio, rec.arts.movies.reviews
