The Action is.... Where?
5 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Hell On Wheels is a movie that combines the early days of NASCAR racing, moonshine, and country western music. You know that you are in for a treat!

The film stars Marty Robbinson, who plays himself, and the film is essentially a show boat for his racing ability and musical talent.

They try to make things interesting by including a plot about his jealous brother doing work for some moonshiners who fund his own racer so he can beat his brother.

And his other brother is a member of the US Tobacco and Alcohol Tax Division, who helps shut down stilleries.

Essentially, the movie in itself, loses it's flow with all the long and drawn out racing scenes with little interest, really bad country music, and it drives home Uncle Sams propaganda machine by reputedly stating that "Remember: Moonshine Kills"

It's a lousy movie, but it has it's camp value, and definitely worth watching with a bunch of friends for the lone purpose of having a good laugh.

THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR: Here are some things I found infinitely amusing about the film: 1.) Watch out in the second big racing scene, there is a cowboy in a red shirt and black hat. Very funny to watch.

2.) The little girl at the end, as Marty sings to her, she picks her nose right on camera.
