A very good blaxpoitation flick from the mid 70s. Much more ambitious than the usual genre fare, the movie is slickly made, starring three of the most famous stars of the time, Jim Brown, Jim Kelly and Fred Williamson. As I recall, the casting caused quite a stir at the time of release. My only complaint is the unsatisfying, rushed final act. Gordon Parks, the director failed in giving the villains a memorable send off. Well worth seeing. The soundtrack by the Impressions is great as well.
By the way, having seen the movie in a theater, the lighting problems noted in other reviews is due to the poor print used, a second generation, edited TV version. The original version included a nude scene by the three motorcycle riding women "interogators" and more closeup kung fu violence, by Jim Kelly. Hopefully, a DVD release someday will restore the original R rated cut.
