Trivia

Isaac Hayes' instrumental 'Hung Up on My Baby' is heard in the film twice - once in Lee's apartment, and during the final showdown with Snake. This instrumental piece has been sampled by the Houston, TX rap group The Geto Boys for their hit single 'Mind Playing Trick on Me' in 1991. See more »

Spaghetti Blaxploitation
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He will forever be known to people my age as the man who wrote and sang "Shaft." To the younger generation, he is "Chef" from "Southpark." He is the man Isaac Hayes, and, in his first film, he is running with one of Europe's best character actors, Lino Ventura, as Father Charlie.

Their enemy is the great Fred Williamson (Black Caesar, From Dusk to Dawn), former football star and blaxploitation actor.

Add a lot of Italian actors and an Italian director who worked with Sergio Leone in A Fistful of Dollars, and you have the Italian version of a blaxploitation action flick.

Nothing to write home about, but some fun entertainment.
