Sheriff Ike Slayton: Brilliant plan, Colonel. Slaughter your own men, hand over more weapons to the convicts, maybe kill a few hostages along the way! What's your next masterplan? Nuke the town?
Johnson: You're the one on the squad radio? Who the hell do you think you are, mister?
Sheriff Ike Slayton: I'm a guy with a wife back in that town, you dumb son of a bitch!
Billy: Save your breath, he can't hear you. Assholes don't have ears.
Johnson: Ya know, you two have a serious attitude problem!

Hang fire? Yes, the rope burnt and the criminals who made this film escaped.
25 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

"HANGFIRE" is a truly awful film. Only some nice crashes and a valiant performance by Jan Michael Vincent save this film from Grade Z kitsch. The direction is shoddy, the dialogue is a collection of cliches and much of the acting is amateurish. At times I found myself thinking this was a high school film class production. I also found myself muting the sound and making up more original dialogue to entertain myself. The only reason I watched the video to the end was to see if the quality improves. It doesn't. The only thing I have to recommend this film is the performance of Jan Michael Vincent. His character is a regular army stereotype: brushcut, dark sunglasses, pipe smoking, "will not negotiate" carbon cut out. Vincent actually rises above the formula as a rose in the stinkweed patch.
