Critic Reviews for The Mountain Men

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The Mountain Men is, quite simply, the worst film of the year.

April 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Doesn't even cut it as a made-for-television movie.

July 11, 2005 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The rubber Seymour Cassell head makes it almost worthwhile.

Audience Reviews for The Mountain Men


To be honest, I picked this movie up just because there was hairy men on the front cover at the Video Store. Who doesn't like a good beard? And as I was watching it I realized,"Hey, it's that voice from Planet of the Apes!" Yep, it was Heston alright. I thought this movie was great! It wasn't as serious as an Eastwood Western and it wasn't overly Hollywood-ized like Tombstone. Don't get me wrong, I freaking love Tombstone. I enjoyed the humor, the love, and the crazy whiskey drinking bearded men without a care in the world. If you like movies like Jeremiah Johnson then you will like this! The Native Americans in this movie are a riot!

Just like The Energizer Bunny this movie kept going on & on & on but I just couldn't take anymore & had to shut it off
