Today's MovieMovie: Hard to Kill

"How does it feel to know you're about to die?"
Today's feature is the movie that proved back in 1990 that Steven Seagal was no one "hit" wonder, but a new force to be reckoned with in the action movie genre. Audiences flocked to theaters to watch Seagal dispense justice using Aikido — a Japanese martial art style that had rarely been seen in action movies before — thrusting Hard to Kill to the top of the box office its opening weekend.
In Hard to Kill, Seagal plays Mason Storm, a Los Angeles police detective who is targeted for termination after uncovering evidence of political corruption. A hit squad made up of corrupt cops ambush Storm in his home, killing his wife and leaving him for dead. He survives, but remains in a coma for seven years. Upon recovery, Storm finds that he is still a target and, aided by a nurse (Kelly LeBrock) from the hospital, he goes into hiding until he can regain enough strength to clear his name of his wife's murder and take down the corrupt politician (William Sadler) with blood on his hands. Justice is served, today at 5:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM PT!
