Powerful, compact nailbiter, a Vic Morrow showcase.
22 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw "Hell's Five Hours" in theatrical release, and I recall that it actually drew audience applause at its conclusion. Vic Morrow, three years after "Blackboard Jungle", is perfectly cast. The film exhibits the tautness and grittiness evident in Allied Artists releases of the period. It's reminiscent, of course, to "White Heat" in its tank-farm setting; but "Hell's Five Hours" stands firmly on its own, and will definitely hold your attention as the seconds tick away. Highly recommended to all.
