Trivia

Despite the New Line Cinema re-release title being "The Black Streetfighter", this film bears no connection to Shin'ichi Chiba's series of martial arts pictures, including The Streetfighter (1974) (The Streetfighter) and Sister Street Fighter (1974) (Sister Streetfighter). This retitling was done only to capitalize on the success of the popular 'Streetfighter' series. See more »

Lacks A Certain Everything
1 August 2010 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

" Blaxploitation " was a short lived action genre from the early 1970s made with an eye to making a profit from a black audience hence films like SHAFT where said black audience could relate to the characters and situation . Ironically the producers of these films were white and in a great number of the lesser quality films you'd believe the only knowledge they have of blacks is via BIRTH OF A NATION . This blackploitation flick known under several different tiles such as BOGARD , BLACK FIST or BLACK STREETFIGHTER gives the impression that the makers not only don't know any black people but that they don't know anyone capable of making a halfway mediocre film

This is incompetent film making on every level . You know when a film starts and the theme song alone has you thinking that things possibly get worse but they do . The film starts with the protagonist and his homie going to see a mafia gangster in a barber shop :

" What's your name boy ? "

" Lee. Leroy "

Which suggests that the actor has fluffed his line and the production company couldn't afford a retake . Actually of every technique involving the production it's the editing that stands out as the worse . It really is painfully bad with no sequential logic behind it which seems to interfere with the time frame The movie has no rhythm and scenes start and end with no sound and dialogue ends in mid sentence . . That said when you've lines like

" Nigga you gonna make one more jive about me being a punk I'm gonna put your feeble ass thru that mirror "

maybe it's a good idea to delete the lines . Especially when they delivered with all the passion of people reading out their groceries list . I mean when you've got a character apologising for raising his voice in a scene where he doesn't actually raise his voice you can tell this movie isn't going to win any Oscars

That said there is two stand out performances in the film BOTH of them by Philip Michael Thomas as firstly Fletch , Leroy's main man and later as Boom Boom a Latino drug dealer and pimp . Okay both the performances are over the top but they are entertaining in a film lacking deliberate entertainment

This is a film lacking a certain everything and the fact that its official title is BOGARD and unless I missed something there's nothing on screen to give an indication of why the film is called this sums up how badly produced it is
