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.

New York Times
Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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

Apollo Guide

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.

Audience Reviews for Under Hellgate Bridge


Absolutely horrible movie, I love Mafia flicks but this is one you must avoid at all costs. Bad story with bad acting makes for a combination that makes you want to just fall over and die.

Sergio's urban melodrama Under Hellgate Bridge suggests the contemporary equivalent of any number of 1930's B movies.
