Black Gangster version of british 1971 film "GET CARTER"
15 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Good black gangster film, American version of the earlier British released "GET CARTER" with Micheal Caine.

Follows the same storyline, with main character the gangster Tyrone Tackett, moving back to LA to find out who killed his brother. He moves into the dark underworld of the mob and adult movie bizz, and gets his revenge. Not bad acting, funky black street talk. Bloody and violent with harsh language, cheesy action scenes with funky music in the background! 6/10 points
