    Stanley Baker looks very much like the young Sean Connery. I had a hard time telling them apart. 2 years 11 months ago

    Though a Stanley Baker vehicle (ha!), Hell Drivers includes in its cast Patrick McGoohan (who makes a great villain), David McCallum, a young Sean Connery, and William Hartnell (just not enough of him!) so a must for this geek. It tells the noirish story of an ex-con trying to make good by exposing his ruthless bosses' racket at the gravel-transport company where he works. It's mostly about driving trucks at dangerous speeds on country roads, as the drivers compete for who can make the most runs in a day, and that's where the interest lies. There's a lull in the second act as the film services a romance subplot, but I think I can forgive it because it also manages to spend some of that time building up the various characters. It unfortunately also includes some shaky sets (no, Hartnell isn't in those scenes). But the movie is bookended properly, so if you'll pardon the expression, it's a truckload of fun. 1 year ago
