Review

The Macaroni Combat genre offers campy movies just as well as the Spaghetti Western genre. Five For Hell is one such camper. It does have nice moments and a certain charm but the actors are relatively horrible, the music is too upbeat and the movie comes across as too clumsy - although you can see the good intentions. Margaret Lee in a see-through dress and a General with a funny name cannot save this movie, which is not one of the better representatives of said genre, but fares among the average...
