Audience Reviews for The Hellbenders

A mediocre Spaghetti Western that does just enough to entertain and is held together by a villainous performance from Joseph Cotton.

Good movie in spots but uneven. A very unsatisfactory ending. This is the last movie I saw in 2008. Saw December 31.

This is a story about some Confederate soldiers, who call themselves the Hellbenders (think Flying Hellfish), and steal a convoy of money with which they hope to revive the Civil War. I really liked this one, because the story was original and well written and the ending caught me by surprise, which isn't hard to do admittedly (will Nemo escape? will his father find him in time? I just don't know. I just don't know). I don't own it yet, but its definitely a contender for my collection.
