To take a briefcase from Hong Kong to Mexico City, via Los Angeles, is it necessary to call on that man - Bolt? With the number of dangerous spies and gangsters who are after that briefcase, maybe Jefferson Bolt is not enough.

Not the best of Williamson's films,but it is passable
18 August 2003 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

In the age of the 1970's,Fred Williamson was the undisputed king of the black cimema,and one of the top action stars of his day,right beside icons as Burt Reynolds,Clint Eastwood,Charles Bronson,James Coburn,Richard Roundtree,Jim Brown,Jim Kelly,Telly Savalas and Steve McQueen. In the 1970's,per se you had the typical action picture that featured a smooth,tough talking,good-looking African-American male who can hold his own against all odds and still gets the girl or a bunch of them at the same time.

Even if the plot was offkey,WE as brothers and sisters would line up around the theatre to see it and we knew the if it was a black feature with a black actor in the leading role,it was a good one and it brought in the business too...and this was back in the day!!!!

In the film "That Man Bolt"(Universal,1973),Fred Williamson displays such a character that suppose to be among the ranks of James Bond,Derek Flint,and not mention John Shaft. Williamson plays secret agent Jefferson Bolt who goes to Hong Kong to stop an international ring of thugs bent on destruction and when things go dismal,Bolt handles things his way and saves the world,with soulpower!!! The picture is good with great photography locational shoots in Hong Kong,but the picture does get a little weak and between the lines with some of the lamest dialogue ever conceived. As far as the fight scenes,and the action part of it as well,it does look like a similiar detail to the Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker fare "Rush Hour",but it is not one of Fred Williamson's best,but it is passable. However,Williamson would go on to make several more action flicks in the 1970's and some of them are very good including "Black Caesar","Hell Up In Harlem", "Bucktown","Three The Hard Way","Black Cobra","The Soul Of Charley","The Revenge of Charley",and the one action flick that started it all..."Hammer". He also had a good looking female lead too,who also made a name for herself as one of the top female action hero of her day,Miss Foxy Brown herself,the legendary Pam Grier,who was not in "Bolt",but starred in several films with Fred Williamson.

"That Man Bolt" is available on DVD and Video.
