A white supremacist movements heinous attempts to pollute the water supply of America with a racially selective virus serves as the background for this action packed Blaxploitation classic starring three of the genres biggest stars namely, Jim Brown, Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly.
OK, so the acting is mightily ropey in parts, there's a fair bit of padding throughout (usually involving shots of the protagonists driving cars/boats or motorbikes etc whilst the cool and very memorable, groovy conceptual soundtrack plays over the scenes) and the proceedings do require one to really stretch the limits of the suspension of disbelief, but ..this is simply so damn cool throughout! The ending especially really kicks into overdrive when our heroes take the fight directly to the enemy in their HQ and proceed to shoot up, blow up and in Kelly's case, beat up all of the opposition!
If it's classic seventies action you're after then you can't really go wrong here, trust me! Best scene of all though is the when we first meet Kelly who is being framed with the possession of drugs by some bent cops; needless to say our man understandably doesn't take entirely kindly to this blatant abuse of authority and proceeds to give them a well deserved and mighty good hiding! Awesome stuff!
