Police inspector Harry Martineau (Stanley Baker) has a strong hunch that escaped American thug Don Starling (John Crawford) has returned to the city of Manchester for one last heist. But when a simple robbery leads to murder, Martineau becomes obsessed with pursing Starling and his gang through a deadly underworld of dives, dames and desperate men. From the streets and alleys to the moors and rooftops, this is no ordinary manhunt. For cop and killer alike, justice is a bullet... and Hell Is A City.
Written and directed by Val Guest (The Quatermass Xperiment, The Day The Earth Caught Fire), Hell Is A City was acclaimed worldwide for its startling realism, shocking violence and gritty Manchester locations.
