User Review

Seagal and LeBrock look great together..

Rating: 7/10

Seagal plays Mason Storm, a Los Angeles homicide detective who is seen
on the dock, one night, with a video camera and a tape recorder, spying
on mystery guys who were plotting to turn a political figure into a
memory…

Once he gets the evidence, Storm shares the information with a buddy,
unaware that two crooked cops, in the next room, are listening in to
their phone conversation…

Later that night, an assassination squad turns their automatic weapons
against Storm and his family… They murder his wife, fail to kill his
young kid, but apparently left him seriously wounded…

After Storm is taken to the hospital, he sank into a deep coma… His
death was faked and his true identity was hidden away by a friend..

Seven years later, Seagal suddenly comes out of his coma, and begins to
remember events that happened while he was conscious…

When he regains his full consciousness, he asks his beautiful nurse,
Kelly LeBrock, to get him immediately out of the hospital…

In a house-sitting far back from the city, Storm prepares his health
and wellness with Oriental healing traditions, stimulating the flow of
energy within his body, by inserting fine needles into specific points
on his skin…

Once achieving his skills of vitality, he set out to avenge his wife's
murder by tracking down the crooked cops, and of course the ambitious,
cynical politician, who was behind the grand scheme of things…

"Hard to Kill" is full of flying bullets and breaking-glass, with
super-graphic fights and shootouts… Our great hero proves once again
to have a threatening penchant for breaking bad men's arms, legs,
wrists and backs…

Seagal and LeBrock look great together.. Their palpable chemistry is
well translated on the screen… The gorgeous model eventually married
the wonderful man, and they would have three children… However, in
1996 the two divorced and LeBrock began appearing a bit more, taking
part in the feature film 'Wrongfully Accused' (1998), opposite Leslie
Nielsen and Richard Crenna…
