Richard Widmark "is tops" (L.A. Daily News) in this "rip-roaring adventure" (Variety) that unfolds beneath the icy waves of the Artic. "Packed with action - on land, sea and air" (Cue), Hell and High Water is "thrilling...intriguing" (The Hollywood Reporter), and one hell of a blast!

Hired by a secret group of scientists and ex-military men, retired submarine commander Adam Jones (Widmark) takes to the helm again on a mission to investigate a possible communist nuclear base on an island in the Arctic. But danger lurks in the deep for Jones' crew, and the closer they get to their destination, the deeper their predicament gets. Hostile subs and tensions on board are only the beginning as Jones discovers that this mission isn't what it seems, and the real danger of atomic war comes from closer than he ever imagined.

"...enough salt in it to burn.  Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Tense and exciting! A mighty entertaining action feature.  Variety

Editor's Note
Samuel Fuller's HELL AND HIGH WATER is a superior war flick that takes place as the globe reaches the brink of World War III. Richard Widmark is placed in charge of a mission to Japan, where it is believed Communist troops are about to pull the trigger and obliterate civilization.

"Fuller deals with atomic war in this CinemaScope thriller....Richard Widmark brings his usual ferocity to his role..." 12/01/2007 p.102

Slant Magazine 8 of 10
In A Third Face, his magnificently pulpy memoirs, Samuel Fuller called Hell and High Water his least favorite film. The film may not smash through the Cold War thriller format as ferociously as Forty Guns smashes through the western format, but it's enough of a distinctive and personal work to put its creator's dismissal in perspective as another entry in that notoriously untrustworthy biography...As a men-on-a-mission adventure film, Hell and High Water more than holds its own with such other all-business '50s naval flicks as The Enemy Below and Run Silent Run Deep. But then again, Fuller's greatness resides less in constructing genre pieces than in bursting their seams, and the film's tight action sequences don't linger in the mind nearly as much as its oddities...Often seen as typical '50s Red-baiting propaganda, the film is actually a companion piece to Fuller's great Pickup on South Street... - Fernando F. Croce
