Critic Reviews for Under Hellgate Bridge

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

Energetic, earnestly performed and short on nuance.

Top Critic

The performances are correspondingly overblown and the soundtrack inundated with grandiose choral music and mediocre hard rock.

May 10, 2001 | Rating: 1.5/5

Robotic acting and outtakes from the Stigmata soundtrack complement the perfunctory plot, while the dialogue indulges massive backstorytelling and desperate iteration.

From start to finish, it feels like an amalgam of various other crime movies.

Apr 28, 2003 | Rating: 42/100

A hard-edged gangster revenge movie which suffers from a budget too small to enable it to rise to its rightful place as a major crime genre film.

It's less than ordinary in every which way.
