Tanner Beard's The Legend of Hell's Gate: An American Conspiracy tries to achieve greatness, but never does.100 minutes seems like a suitable run time for a western, and while it does boast numerous characters, the story never seems to have any consistent flow from beginning to end. There is too much time spent trying to setup characters that don't need it, which leaves little time to focus on an exciting and thrilling story. Aside from some interesting sets and scenery, this film really does lack the much needed excitement.There are decent performances all around; unfortunately, none of the characters can be considered likable in any way, shape, or form. Tanner Beard casts himself as a major character, and as an Irish-man he does stick out in a western setting.The Legend of Hell's Gate: An American Conspiracy ends well with its closing credits. That pretty much sums it up.

Tanner Beard, the director, started this as an ambitious project but somehow managed to dilute this take on the allegedly true story so much, that became insignificant. There is a good Western hidden somewhere but not many people would bother because there is so many other useless things going around which grab your attention and waste time going nowhere. Beard, the writer, spent more time developing characters which are disappearing around the story than building a story itself. Beard, the actor (stars as Irish never-do-well James McKinnon) never shows why would we accept him and follow him - while the bunch of other classic spaghetti Western-style group of antiheroes, men who normally would have nothing to do with one another but who are thrust together by circumstances beyond their control - are all doing their own thing. I could not fault the acting under circumstances, especially in the last part when finally picks up the pace, but by then it's too late.

Uninspiring and without strength and conviction!

Really good alternative to all those "lead-character-is-able-to-kill-everybody-in-the-room/building-in-25-slow-motion-cgi-seconds" movies.

Rented this on redbox today. Very disappointed. Way too slow, couldn't understand a lot of what was being said without having to turn volume up to maximum, and the characters seemed to be only partially thought out. All in all, a waste of my time.

Takes way too long to pick up pace - and is one of the least satisfying westerns I have seen in a while (and that is saying something)
August 5, 2012
Labeling this film as one of conspiracy and portrayal of real events is mere gimmickry. The writer's attempt to weave John Wilkes Booth as an escaped assassin is not only historically inaccurate but a failed attempt at making the story that is told more interesting. The last half of the film portrays only one of several legends associated with Hell's Gate when three thieves are caught and killed by Indians in the hills of Possum Kingdom Lake. While the acting is strong, the film is ruined by the disjointed and questionably relevant introductory sequences and failure to develop its stated theme. Artist expression or misguided attempt at storytelling. You decide.
