Goofs

When "Nick Allen" (Billy Dee Williams) waits outside for "Esther" (Janear Hines) to leave her place of work, she has on a dark colored blouse and her hair is draped around her neck to her shoulders. Then from an in-car shot when Esther is shown driving (checking her left rear-view mirror, seeing she's being followed by Nick), her clothes and hairstyle have changed: she is now wearing a white colored blouse and her hair is in a pony tail.

She pulls over for Nick, he gets out of his car, walks to the driver side of her car and her clothes and hairstyle have changed back to her wearing a dark colored blouse and her hair draped around her neck to her shoulders. See more »

Quotes

Better than your average black action flick....
21 June 1999 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

...and in fact, Hit! is an ambitious mixture of action and character study. At 134 minutes, one might suspect the director of overweening pride, but in fact there's little in the way of flab here. Billy Dee Williams proves that he should have been a major star and Richard Pryor is, as always, brilliant. Add a terrific supporting cast (Warren Kemmerling, Paul 'They Came From Within' Hampton, Sid Munson), a host of slimy French drug dealers, and a heaping dollop of revenge for a thoroughly satisfying blast of 70s-style crime dramatics.
