Critic Reviews for Hell Drivers
The working-class personal/political tension leads to a splendidly drawn immigrant characterization by Herbert Lom and the human drama of Baker dangling from a precipice. Both remain memorable.

Audience Reviews for Hell Drivers
A pretty good movie with good actors, like McGoohan, but a story that's familiar. Still, I enjoyed seeing it on TV.
"I found Hell Drivers to be pretty unique, thrilling and interesting. The film's first and last twenty minutes are by far the best, as the beginning is extremely funny and does a nice job setting up the basis of the story and the conclusion is very dramatic, nicely wrapping up the film with quite a few twists."

"Hell Drivers" is a gripping, yet mildly predictable, road movie wherein the highway is a ten mile stretch of country roads where a group of truckers haul ballast from a mine to the main plant, led by Red(Patrick McGoohan) who is out to prove he is number one. After the death of one of the drivers, Tom(Stanley Baker) shows up looking for work and gets it on the basis of a nerve-wracking audition. As Cartley(William Hartnell), the manager, explains, all the drivers must complete at least twelve runs a day or they are fired, paving the way for the men to prove their masculinity by driving excessive speeds. As competitive as the drivers are, Tom manages to make one true friend, Gino(Herbert Lom), an Italian expatriate who has been in England since World War II and is still homesick.
