Ahead of it's time: begging for a remake.
23 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This has come out on DVD in April 2012. I had been looking for this for a long time. I hadn't seen it in nearly 25 years and I am surprised how well it has aged.

So, here we are with a piece of cinema that was well ahead of it's time (and still his) as far as inter-racial relationships is concerned. Even Denzel has not had the intestinal fortitude to go where Billy Dee Williams has gone: falling in love with a gorgeous white woman in the person of Gwen Welles.

Sexy and tender: this would be exceptional in 2012, but it was done in 1973! Hit! is a great story that doesn't shy away from character development. It quietly builds itself in 135 short minutes.

Of course it has its flaws like all the B+ stuff, but boy would I like to see a remake of this.

It has all the ingredients of a Stallone flick: losers humbly redeem themselves doing extraordinary things in so brief instants where their whole existence must past in front of them.

It was like I knew - and fell in love with - every character.

A tour de force by Sidney Furie that would be difficult to duplicate using modern standards.

Still, I would love to see this one remade.
