Movie Info

One man takes a stand against a vicious robber baron and his ruthless crew of cutthroats in this western set in the Sierra Mountains, and starring Michael Madsen. The year is 1887. Upon losing his home and his wife, former Civil War sharpshooter William Drayton disappears into the high country. He thought his daughter Elizabeth was dead, but he was wrong. When she finds him, they decide to start a new life together. Unfortunately peace isn't in the cards to Drayton, because power-hungry former banker Horace Scarsdale is determined to get rich by becoming a railroad tycoon, and anyone who stands in his way must answer to "The Company Men." When no one in town dares stand up to Scarsdale's thugs, Drayton realizes he's walked out of one war, and straight into another.

Audience Reviews for A Cold Day In Hell

This isn't worth any part of a star. It is probably the worst film I have ever seen [and I've seen quite a few bad ones] and I couldn't watch it all the way through because it was so dreadful - I gave up on hoping that perhaps I'd missed something, that it was a bad comedy perhaps? The acting is wooden, the dialogue is laughable and the production makes it look like an amateur effort. The PR claims that it's the best film Madsen's been in since Reservoir Dogs - oh please! - and has the gall to compare it to Yuma and True Grit - in Lionsgate's wildest dreams.

I nudged the triangle as little as possible, but there's nothing between 0 and 10 to get it to register. Worst film I've seen this year(out of about 70) - heck, the worst I've seen in a long, long time. The production values are epically bad. This is far worse than some of my teenage back-yard film attempts - I know, I may be bias, but seriously. I make it a point NOT to turn movies off, but at the 40 minute mark I realized there was no way the film could recover for a 1/10 - even though I'm forced to give it that rating here. Take your three dollars and donate it. The filmmakers should take every dollar they make and do the same.
