Editorial Reviews

Based on real events, this Texas-based tale uncovers the mystery of the events surrounding the legendary Hell's Gate, a cliff formation that rises out of Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. When a curious errand boy catches wind of one of America's most infamous crimes - the assassination of Abraham Lincoln - he falls in with two desperate men on the wrong side of the law. Crossing paths with some of the West's most notorious figures, these three outlaws fight for their lives in the pursuit of fame and riches. Few are to be trusted, as their interwoven stories prove that everyone has a hidden agenda, and by no means is anyone innocent. Fueled by a talented ensemble cast, The Legend Of Hell's Gate blends legend and history into a Western spectacle that recounts the treacherous existence in post-Civil War Texas.

The acting is iffy at best but the story keeps you watching and I was actually surprised at how much I was enjoying it.

Anyone who knows me knows that I can watch some pretty bad movies and enjoy them.

You're not going to find a bigger fan (on Amazon) for any studio bringing back the Western than I am, but vanity projects like THE LEGEND OF HELL'S GATE will probably do little to bring new fans to the classic oater. I love `em, through and through, because I think that they're (largely) the only truly original form of American storytelling. While I'd love to see more and more of them released theatrically, I certainly understand that the dynamics of Hollywood accounting make producing them fairly costly these days. Still, I'll embrace any of them, even one so curiously flawed as is HELL'S GATE.

By appearances, THE LEGEND OF HELL'S GATE is meant to tell the story of the fabled Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. While it clearly establishes something took place that led up to its name, what the viewer is left with is mostly a mishmash of vignettes strung together by the weakest narrative I've ever seen in a Western - a genre that's usually rich with peoples of immense character and symbolism too vivid to escape detection. Instead, the film delivers a handful of scenes artfully photographed, but these characters seem to have very little basis in reality. Who knows? Maybe they've all been drawn from `legend'! (insert `rimshot' here)

Unfortunately, the main story doesn't begin until 45 minutes into the feature, and therein lies the biggest problem at the heart of HELL'S GATE. In order for anyt audience to appreciate any film, there has to either be (A) characters you can identify with or (B) a very clearly establish narrative with a discernible beginning, middle, and end. For the record, HELL'S GATE has neither until the 45 minute mark, and I'm strongly inclined to believe the writer/director Tanner Beard realized this when all that he shot came into the editing suite.

I and my spouse totally enjoyed this film when we first saw it at the Dallas International Film Festival over a year ago. We think it is a fine historical/action/western with just the right amount of humor in it. Tanner Beard (writer/actor/director) did his research well and used the proper weapons and clothing for the time. I thought the acting in it was superb and Glenn Morshower had a great part in it. The only disagreement I have is about the cover art for the DVD. The character on horseback, in the center, never did have a rifle and none of the three desperodoes had a horse except Eric Balfour--in the beginning of the movie. All in all, I think it is worth viewing if the person is interested in a western dealing with Texas in the 1870's. And the stories in this film are all based off of true legends/events.

Format: DVD
The first thing you notice is the sound track. It combines the classic western style with an upbeat Celtic tune. The story follows two men (Eric Balfour, Henry Thomas) who were the lesser of the criminals in a notorious gang. When a bar robbery goes awry, these two Irish men manage to escape into post Civil War near-anarchy run Texas. When a posse comes looking for them, they reluctantly accept the help of Kelly (Lou Taylor Pucci) a local small time criminal, jack of all trades in order to escape.

The story intersects with true historical figures in almost a "Forrest Gump" fashion. These include Doc Holiday, Jesse James, Texas merchant W.H. "Pete" Snyder, Comanche chief Quanah Parker, buffalo hunter J. Wright Mooar, and a Shakespeare quoting bartender who claimed to be John Wilkes Booth.

Decent acting and script. Enjoyable pseudo-history western.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Prostitutes, couple (clothed) in bed after presumed sex.

Anyone who knows me knows that I can watch some pretty bad movies and enjoy them. This movie was unwatchable. Choppy editing, horrible cinematograpy (dark dark dark - I'm sure there were things going on that I just couldn't see) and just a confused mess. Who's a good guy? Who's a bad guy? Who cares if they all get shot. Allowing for the suspension of belief - there is no way you can run with a pillowcase full of gold that seems like it is full of cotton candy. That would be really heavy guys not flopping around all poofy. Sigh.

On the other hand, costuming and sets were spot on. Beautifully done and other than the fluffy pillowcases, it was perfect. If it had been in a movie with a plot that could be followed without a road map it would have been magnificent. It may be a great film, where everything comes together in the end and a lot of the mish mash makes sense but I literally could not bring myself to watch the whole thing and that has never happened to me befor.

I saw this movie at a screening in Los Angeles. The creator of this movie is a super talented young guy, Tanner Beard. I think he is like a young Texas Orson Welles as he wrote, starred, directed, edited and produced this movie. It is an ambitious undertaking and he did a great job. The visuals are pure Texas. The acting supports the storyline (which is ambitious) and I just enjoyed the end result so much. Henry Thomas is stunning in his role, looks the part and acts it. Glenn Morshower has a nice turn in this as does Lou Taylor Pucci. But for my money Kevin Alejandro is one of the high points of the film. he disappears into his role so much you don't even recognize him. Very fun movie!
