Ward makes it worthwhile
3 May 2002 | by rufasffSee all my reviews

A minor, if sometimes inventive spoof, Hellbent is given some class by the likeable Phil Ward in the lead. His funny performance is low key but very effective. Other than that, this is for fans of straight to video obscurities only.
