black force two???
2 December 2001 | by (irvine, ca) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised this movie has less than five votes, considering the gobs and gobs of cheese in this flick.

Brother on the Run aka Black Force 2 is a generic 70's blaxploitation flick about a professor who just oozes coolness. How cool is he? While constantly on the run from law enforcement, he manages to give some fine ladies a taste of his coolness. Then he's on the run again with no time to waste.

I agree with the previous poster that this film really needed a better editor. The same 5-10 minute sequence is repeated twice in a row! And believe me, it's VERY noticeable.

Some strange things about this film. When it was released to video after fifteen or so years, the distributors apparently changed the title of the film to Black Force 2. Never mind the fact that a movie called Black Force was released several years AFTER Brother on the Run. Also, the cover box of the video shows a guy sitting on his motorcycle looking very full of himself. However, as far as I know, this person does not appear in the movie at all! Makes you wonder...
