Critic Reviews for Hell on the Border

All Critics (5) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

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

    December 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.

    December 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.

    December 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.
