Movie Info

This epic, action-packed Western tells the incredible true story of Bass Reeves (David Gyasi), the first black marshal in the Wild West. Having escaped from slavery after the Civil War, he arrives in Arkansas seeking a job with the law. To prove himself, he must hunt down a deadly outlaw (Frank Grillo) with the help of a grizzled journeyman (Ron Perlman). As he chases the criminal deeper into the Cherokee Nation, Reeves must not only dodge bullets, but severe discrimination in hopes of earning his star--and cement his place as a cowboy legend.

  • Inspired by Reeves, but clearly not attempting to recount the real story in any way. It's merely a fun western and should be seen as that.

    Jan 8, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Gyasi's quiet gravitas and the excellent supporting cast bring an engaging story to life.

    Dec 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Not once throughout the film do the environs, sets or costuming immerse the viewer in the appropriate period, because the film's cinematography makes it all feel like a civil war cosplay captured on a cell phone. Bass Reeves deserves a better movie.

    Dec 20, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Reduces Reeves to a cheap action-movie stereotype, just another generic Western lawman gunning down anonymous henchmen in cowboy hats.

    Dec 17, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Legendary frontier marshal Bass Reeves gets a shoddy western. Hell on the Border shines a spotlight on the lawman, but fails in almost every other regard.
