Danny Trejo (Machete), Anthony Michael Hall (The Dark Knight) and Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) star in this unrated, action-packed battle for vengeance. As a ruthless gang overruns a small mining town, they murder their own leader, Guerrero Hernandez (Trejo), in a cold-blooded power grab. Sentenced to eternity in hell, Guerrero finds himself confronted by Satan himself (Rourke), offering a daring proposition: deliver the six souls of his former gang and he will escape damnation. With time running out, he sets out on a brutal rampage to avenge his own death!

The script was terribly corny (maybe the intended humor), and to add insult to injury it was usually delivered stiffly like a bad high-school production, without any sense of the actors staying in character (after all this was supposed to be something like 150 years ago). Mickey Rourke (as the Devil) and the whole Blackwater Gang were especially cringe-worthy. Only some of the town extras and Trejo (as the scar-faced betrayed leader of the Blackwater Gang) and Dina Meyer (as the beautiful wife of the town sheriff) were any good with their parts - and Trejo is good only because he's Trejo. This was one of those movies where the best thing about it was how good it made better movies seem.
Everything else on Amazon is great, this is the only problem, I have ever had with Amazon.
But this film is great. Despite the premise, a wronged outlaw returns from hell to get revenge on his killers, this is not really a horror film. The only thing that breaches the concept of horror is the costume they gave Mickey Rourke.
Mickey Rourke. Once one of my favorite actors. His butchered face lift makes it painful to even look at him. Thanks to not having a connection between his muscles and the skin on his face, it is rarely easy to tell what he is thinking. He falls well short of effective as the devil. Nothing scary. Your worst fear is that his beer gut will break through his vest and a flying button will put out your eye.
Now if you are cast with Danny Trejo, but it is YOUR face that looks scarred, you need to look into another appointment. I really would have rather had Gabriel Burn or Al Pacino, both brilliant devils in their own right. (End of Days, The Devil's Advocate, respectively)
Anthony Michael Hall makes a very convincing bad guy. Gone are the days of the wimpy nerd. He is 3-D and yet, devoid of saving graces.
The ending leaves the door open for a sequel or even a franchise. If they ditch Mickey I will follow it.

If you've seen the advertising, you may notice that Mickey Rourke - naturally - second billing, suggesting he's in it equally as much as Danny Trejo. However, he is sadly very underused. Fans of his may need to know he's not in it as much as the advertising may suggest he is.
There's no shortage of action in the film, all of which is surprisingly stylishly directed. However, the uber-quick editing may annoy some people after the millionth cut. It's basically a revenge-western with a small helping of supernatural added into it when the plot requires as such. There may not be a `romance element' to the film, but that doesn't stop Dina Meyer getting herself kidnapped every chance she gets.
It's not a bad film. Everything is okay and yet never seems to spill over to either `really good' or `really bad.' It could well be the most `on the fence' movie ever made. If you like Danny Trejo, you should enjoy this, however, like I say, Mickey Rouke fans may be left-short-changed.
If yes to all the above then this is the movie for you.
Double crossed outlaw makes a pact with the devil so he can get his revenge on the gang who double crossed him.
All good stuff.
