Synopsis:
When ex-con Tom Yately (Stanley Baker) signs up as a driver for Hawlett's, he uncovers shady dealings between the manager and the viciously ambitious head driver - the drivers are paid per trip, with a bonus system encouraging them to drive at reckless speeds and take dangerous risks. The stakes are raised when a fatal accident claims the life of Tom's only workplace ally, and he vows to take revenge.

Great trucker thriller. - Hell Drivers review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2012

Unpretentious social realist British gangster film, directed by Welles accolyte and McCarthy victim, Cy Endfield. Its tight underworld narrative calls to mind the Hollywood gangster films of the 30s and 40s, like They Drive by Night, and Jules Dassin's wonderful Thieves Highway.

Low budget, but compelling with lots of action and a quite remarkable cast list. Leading the way is personal favourite tough guy, Stanley Baker, and Sid James. But there's also Herbert Lom, David McCullum, Patrick McGoohan, the great Peggy Cummins, Alfie Bass, Gordon Jackson as Scottie, and, in his feature debut, completely out of his depth, Sean Connery.

One of a group of extremely under regarded British post war gangster films.
