this is a good,effective supernatural thriller with some light comedic
elements combined.it is quite spooky and eerie.the basic outline is
that 2 Chicago cops,Frank Shatter(Norris)and his partner Calvin
Jackson(Calvin Levels)end up in Jerusalem(you'll have to watch the
movie)as past of a routine murder investigation that is anything but
routine.in fact,the fate of the world may depend on them.Norris and
Jackson have good chemistry as the 2 partners and work well off each
other.the partners have differing opinions on just about
everything,which provides some amusing moments.i like the idea of Chuck
going up against someone who may not be easy to defeat.i thought the
movie was very entertaining and Chuck was convincing in his role as was
Jackson.Sheree J. Wilson also plays a pivotal role in the
film.Christopher Neame puts in an outstanding performance as the
villain.Overall,a better than average movie.worth watching.a strong

Even the most die hard Chuck fans could not have helped being majorly disappointed by this all time low from Cannon. The pic starts pleasingly enough and even hints at some vague form of a budget but before long we're in Israel (cheaper to film there) and then it all falls apart.
We could forgive the crappy 70's Chuck films because of the superior fight scenes but these are not in evidence in this effort that deserves never to be seen again.

This is one of the worst in a long line of terrible Chuck Norris films. If you liked the Missing in Action series or maybe the Original Delta Force, don't waste your time with this one. If you're thrilled with the fabulous storylines of Forest Warrior and Top Dog then by all means waste your hard earned money on this movie. There was a reason this film was shelved for two years before it went straight to video, IT SUCKED!!!

In my career as a movie reviewer, I have seen many films but I have to tell you, Hellbound tops it off. This is a great movie that is serious and humurous at the same time. Chuck Norris is spectacular and Christopher Neame plays a horrifying role. Go watch it.

HASH(0x9e232498) out of 5 stars How can evil be defeated? Simple, put it in a room with Chuck Norris. March 26 2008
By Sid the Elf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Hellbound: Seriously, was this a 95 minute hallucination or one of the greatest B horror movies ever? Sid could go on forever about all the things that made this movie perfect in every way, but we will try to keep it reasonable. We decided on this one after watching what Chuck could do to a foe in a horror movie in the classic Silent Rage. In our review of that one, we begged Chuck to do a sequel. Little did we know that we didn't need one, as Hellbound more than made up for the absence of Silent Rage 2: Ramon's Revenge.

The film starts in the Middle Ages with some Crusaders burying the demon in a stone casket and locking it with daggers. The demon is played by the same actor as the bad guy in "The Final Sacrifice," or "Rowsdower!" as it was titled in its North Pole release. Anyway, flash forward to 1951 and two homeless men somehow find the tomb. Instead of leaving it alone, they pull the daggers out so they can sell the stones on the handles. Even as it was happening, you knew it was a bad move. Of course, the demon pops out of the tomb like he was Sid jumping out of a stocking and goes nuts. Flash forward again to "Chicago Present Day" where Chuck is a hardass cop. This is especially illustrated when a street tough mouths off to Chuck and Norris naturally punches the guy 10 feet into the air onto a parked car. O yeah, the street tough was the one, the only Iceman! That's right, THE Iceman. As in "The Iceman has melted. Two more and I'm coming for you, Vachs." From Death Ring. The reaction by Sid was one of hillarity, excitment and sheer amazement all rolled into one.

Now, this movie was released in 1993. For two reasons Sid really hopes it was shot shortly before its release and not shelved for a few years first. Number one, there's a good chance that Norris shot this classic on hiatus from Walker Texas Ranger. Also, if it was shot in that 1992-93 period Chuck and Billy Ray Cyrus were the only people not living in a trailer park with mullets like that. Maybe Chuck tapped into his inner Segal and grew the back out for strength. Who knows? Now the demon is killing holy men in Isreal. So, of course they send Chuck and his partner Vanilli. I know you're asking yourself "Why would they send a Chicago cop to Isreal to investigate a killer?" The answer is that the power of Chuck in a Sonny Crockett costume and with the mullet flowing can beat anyone or anything as we would soon find out.

At the end of the flick, Chuck is trying to rescue his love interest, played by Arnold's love interest in Kindergarten Cop, from the demon. So, it's Chuck Norris vs. a roomful of demons. No contest, Chuck wins. He always wins. We've now seen him take down terrorists, several Vietnimeese POW camps, and pure unadulterated evil. This man is totally insane. When Chuck is taking on the boss demon, he unleashed quite possibly the most killer move in film history. That's right, the slow-motion, double right legged kick. Words cannot do it justice. It was breathtaking. Another aspect of this movie that brought it into the pantheon of B was that it shattered two previously long standing records. One for times Sid asked "What the hell is going on here?" and one for times Sid asked "What is this, are they serious?" Two absolute must questions for a classic B to evoke from its viewers, as you already know.

Now, Sid always goes the extra mile for his loyal fans, so we did some research and found out that Hellbound was once upon a time shown on Joe Bob's Drive-In theatre. It was even nominated for a Hubbie. Sounds strangely similar to a Sid the Elf Woody award. Hmmm. In honor of that, here are Sid the Elf's drive-in totals:

1 heart being ripped out

1 impaling

1 hooker being thrown from a window onto a cop car

2 breasts

1 attempted baby sacrifice

1 30 minute streach of film that nobody understood...

and 5682 punches/kicks landed by Mighty U.S. Warlord Premier Norris

HASH(0x9e232570) out of 5 stars Back From The Dead... Nov. 21 2009
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
*** This review is NOT for the Chuck Norris film, nor the HELLRAISER sequel! This is for a different movie altogether! Unfortunately, AMAZON continues to lump titles together for no apparent reason! *** HELLBOUND is about a woman who uses black magic to raise the dead, in hopes of ultimately bringing her sister back from the grave. Unfortunately for everyone involved, things work too well! Filled w/ a thick, heavy atmosphere of utter doom, HELLBOUND takes tales like THE MONKEY'S PAW to a level of darkness I've rarely seen in any movie. Yes, the dead walk, but these re-animated corpses are actually terrifying! Wondrous stuff! Also available on DECREPIT CRYPT OF NIGHTMARES...

HASH(0x9e2327c8) out of 5 stars Fun outing for Chuck Norris and his fans; this one is not too bad when you watch it for the right reasons! Jan. 25 2015
By Leslie Karen Rigsbey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Good enough action vehicle for Norris as an inner-city cop who must do battle (along with his palpable partner, portrayed by Calvin Levels) with an ancient demon who has decided to traverse the grounds of Chicago after being freed from his unholy crypt. What makes all of this madness fun is that "Hellbound" is not truly a horror movie (now honestly, can you see Norris starring in "The Amityville Horror"? Don't answer that...) but instead a genuinely good action picture with a stranger than strange supernatural story as the backdrop. If anyone can kick Satan's ass, it is surely Chuck Norris! Goodies to look out for here include the luscious Zoe Trilling (get an eyeful of her!) playing a brief role as a prostitute in a super sexy bikini, and the eerily low-toned growls of main villain Christopher Neame (who understands, oddly enough, the movie's playful sensibilities), along with Norris's typically energetic fighting skills and choreography. The swansong of Cannon Films may not be much to think about on the level of its plot, but it is a lot of fun if you are into action movies that don't desire a long wait to propel viewers forward into the chaos.

( Chuck Norris, and Calvin Level's ) Kick butt as they battle resurrected demon Prosatanos ( Christopher Neame ) who was released from his prison/tomb by idiots breaking into the tomb looking for treasure. It all began a few hundred years ago when Prosatanos kidnapped the kings child to use as a Satanic sacrafice, the king and his soldiers track him down battling the demon and his minions. Now in the modern era is set lose upon the world once again the demon is looking for the descendant of the king who imprisoned him all those years ago

Now it is up to the two American caps to track down find and stop the demon which leads them on a trip to Isreal in their search, This is an action packed creepy and has some gore supernatural thriller, the actors give outstanding performances realistically portraying their characters. The fight scenes are awesome, the eyes on the demon are eee creepy, but I love this film
