Burt Reynolds interprets the hardest and implacable cop of Florida again, in this movie that is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting and tense series of TNT.Coming back in directing the film, Reynolds is Logan McQueen, and at his side,there is his partner Charlie Duffy (Charles Durning),who constantly challenge the streets of Miami. "Hard Time"'s great idea is the fact it shows a raw and sincere reality of the policemen's degrading routine: the homosexuals, the prostitutes, the criminals, all this is shown by the lens of the director Burt Reynolds, without make-ups. Perhaps that's why some people complain of the explicit violence of some scenes, but "Hard Time", by exploring the reality, turns into an original and interesting crime-drama. The production is of an exceptional quality, the film is expensive and luxurious, with action scenes very well built and unforgettable characters.In "Hard Time: Premonition" , Logan McQueen has to hunt a terrorist who is exploding Miami, and as his only ally, he needs to trust in a convict who says he is capable to foresee the explosions!
The film is explosive, shocking and violent!Burt Reynolds is excellent, as always, and,as he said on an interview, he seems that he used tactics to give the best of his performance: he installed a monitor in the filming sets, so that he could constantly verify his acting. The film is not better than the first of the series, but it is brilliant, and TNT already prepares the next release ""Hard Time: Hide and Seek", the third, with Reynolds, Charles Durning, and Keith Carradine (who worked with the star in "The Hunter's Moon"). My advice is: see the first "Hard Time", and later check "Hard Time: Premonition"!if you like interesting and explosive films, in "Sharky's Machine" style and "Payback" , you have to watch it!!!
