Exceedingly great for a silent amateur production
9 January 2008 | by (Pennsylvania, USofA) – See all my reviews

I came across this flick while watching the DVD for the Essential Clash compilation. Although coming across as a bit cheap and unusual, it fits an aesthetic one would expect from some of the most creative and innovative minds from the past few decades. The reason I rate so highly is because of the amateur production I found it to work very well as a movie regardless of your affinity for the Clash. The story is told very well despite being silent. I found myself very much engrossed within the first five minutes and was never let down by the interesting ways the story is told as the action unfolds. The soundtrack (exclusively Clash songs) adds a very nice touch and lends a lot of depth and feel to Hell W10. Indeed, the soundtrack alone is worth a watch for Clash as it features a few rarities including a good deal of material from the album Combat Rock sans vocal allowing a good glimpse of the Clash's chops at that stage of their career. I think in terms of being a Clash movie, this delivers a lot more than their earlier attempt at film Rude Boy (also quite good btw) in reflecting the imagination of the band and insistence on underground/amateur/DIY aesthetic feel.
