Critic Reviews for Hell on Wheels Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Hell on Wheels plays with big ideas about redemption, sin and forgiveness, so Cullen's detour and the religious component of other subplots fit the show's tone and direction.

Aug 1, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The oftentimes slow pace of the show works to allow viewers to feel the sunburn of the men laying the rail, the anticipation of danger just of the view and the subtle and blatant scheming that is Durant.

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

"Return to Hell" was an awesome episode. How could it not be? Hell on Wheels is at its best when it goes for big moves.

Oct 6, 2014 | Full Review…

The things that made Deadwood so successful-the living, breathing community, and the duality of characters-is what Hell on Wheels is seriously lacking.

Aug 11, 2014 | Rating: 5.9/10 | Full Review…

While there's a lot to like, and remind me why I enjoyed the show in the first place, I'm still a bit wary. Its going to be as difficult a task as crossing a frozen river for the show.

Audience Reviews for Hell on Wheels: Season 4

  • Dec 27, 2018
    Season 4 was a locomotive of building tension, which led to unexpected twists and turns that I'm sure will have consequences in the final season.
  • Sep 02, 2017
    As you can see by my ratings I thought seasons 1 & 2 were good... season 3 was starting to lose what made the show good, but the great characters were able to save it, obviously some episodes are better then others, but overall Season 3 was still a good watch. In season 4 the show continues to slip. So many changes plus at times it feels as if the show looks to make the man character suffer. Some episodes are still good, but overall the show feels lost.

    bummed when its ended

    Like Deadwood, Hell on Wheels flirts with history in a graphic and thrilling manner, full of scoundrels, opportunists and women of little virtue. However, America's recent fashion of porcelain-white teeth has no place in the grim grit of the Western frontier.
  • Oct 11, 2014
    Hell on Wheels is exciting, interesting and one doesn't know what is coming next. There are so many twists and turns like a mountain road. So many characters contribute to the wholeness of the series. I like the menacing persistence of the Swede character. You feel the realism of the era travelling back in time almost as if you are there.

    Love this show. One of my favorite on TV.
  • Sep 23, 2014
    Season 4 finally topped Breaking Bad for AMC' s best show.
  • Sep 13, 2014
    Hell on Wheels starts its fourth season where it belongs, back on the rail line and introduces more rogues and scallywags to sneer at and cheer on. Bohannan again plays his understated hero, a man's man of few words who again under pressure is forced by circumstances into action.

    classic western stereotypes, played to perfection, great acting, writing, cinematography, played to perfection
