Mostly dull take on "Get Carter"
20 December 2002 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The concept - making a blaxploitation version of GET CARTER - certainly sounds interesting, and throughout you do see signs it could have worked. However it fails almost entirely because of a screenplay that has the hero get *nowhere* in his investigation until over an *hour* has passed! Until then he just goes from place to place asking if anyone knows anything, and getting no real answers. It gets boring pretty fast, even with the surprising amount of nudity and sex that comes up.

The remaining part of the movie does offer some okay action (and bursts surprisingly graphic violence), but it's too little, too late. Still, as disappointing as this movie is, it is by no means the worst entry in the blaxploitation era.
