Audience Reviews for Hellfighters

  • Nov 12, 2008
    This is a very entertaining film. Some of the acting of Jim Hutton & Katharine Ross may have been less than one would expect. But the film should be seen keeping mind that this was years before the disaster films of the early seventies like <i>The Poseidon Adventure</i> & <i>The Towering Inferno</i>. It is a fun watch as Chance Buckman's (John Wayne) crew travels the world putting out oil well fires while kindling a few fires of their own in the local women. It is fun to watch many of the fire-fighting scenes today and wonder how they pulled this off thirty years ago. It is very Wayne as can be seen as some of his regulars turn up here, such as Bruce Cabot, Edward Faulkner who were part of his stable. This is the first time I ever saw Jim Hutton (father of actor Timothy Hutton) in this action-adventure film.

    A lumbering exercise in machismo, this films sees a series of oil fires/explosions tackled by John Wayne in overalls and no plot. Frankly, it's bores in the same way common to most disaster movies of the 70s. The Duke's forays into other genres are generally best avoided.
