A Quite Entertaining Blaxploitaion Movie, Not The Best But Still Good.
24 April 2005 | by (Gibraltar) – See all my reviews

This Blaxploitation film may not be considered as one of the best, but it's still a good one and very entertaining.The action and fight scenes are good in a realistic way, the acting is not bad, and the story is easy to follow.

Good action, excitement, nudity, a funky soundtrack and cool dialogs,

the fans of Blaxploitation will enjoy it.

Fred Williamson does a fine job,

he's one bad dude.

Its Hammer time.

7/10
