It seems that masked men are knocking over the floating crap games of Chalky and Pete. Chalky and Pete hire the cool, loose, elegant Mr. T to fix things. Then, the masked manipulators set up the death of a collector for a rival gang lord. It looks like it's up to T to keep a gang war from breaking out, keep the police off his back, and earn his fee from Chalky and Pete. Then things get complicated. A pool hall, a boxing gym, women's well-furnished apartments, and the mean streets of L.A. give T room to sort out what seems from what is. Written by <>

Trouble Man Soundtrack!
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most fascinating thing about this movie is the soundtrack written composed and performed by Marvin Gaye!!!! As a pro drummer myself I was always amazed by the performance of the drummer(Marvin Gaye)and the freedom and flowing manner he was allowed to play! Its easy to do when you're also the producer and composer! Right on ,MarvinGaye!!!!!!!!!!!! I am searching for the soundtrack and will update you in the future as to the pertinent info regarding the sessions (which I think were engineered by none other than Art Stewart) and as recalled all the tracks were banging. On the title track Trouble Man Marvin is swinging the groove like never before and I always tripped out on how the drummer got away with with it. As I said earlier when you are the boss ,you can do that! In closing I didn't discover the facts till last year when I finally found the movie and read the credits. Peace
