Extremely tepid "Deliverance" clone ..........
20 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For two thirds of the 96 minute running time, "Killing At Hell's Gate" is mostly an ecological, political, talk fest. In addition, there is considerable tedious romantic reminiscing by two very shallow past lovers, played by Robert Ulrich and Deborah Raffin. When bad guy, Brion James, is the most interesting character, and his screen time is extremely limited, you can justifiably reason the highlight could be some beautiful location photography. Indeed, this tree huggers vs log cutters rafting trip gone bad, steadily loses momentum, until a very rushed conclusion. The influence of "Deliverance" is obvious, but there are better rafting TV movies like "White Mile", and far better hunted in the woods movies such as "Hunter's Blood". - MERK
