Are you a joker, Leeroy?
16 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Leeroy Fisk is a hard case street fighter with a mighty afro, a pregnant wife, a mistress and no money at all. What's a brother who doesn't want to work for the white man to do? Except work for the white man as a street fighter. Leeroy starts working for mid-level gangster Logan, and after a quick training montage is out dealing knuckle suppers to other street fighters in return for a load of the green, which he either gives to his wife or his mistress if his wife isn't talking to him. I also thought he had a kid but then I'm not sure because to be honest the editing in this film is a bit choppy to say the least.

Anyway, Leeroy's finally getting some cash, so of course a crooked (white) cop turns up to put the squeeze on him. This guy was named after a brand of beer so that was cool. Leeroy's not cool with this, especially when he discovers that the cop is giving the money back to Logan. Working for the white man is a compromise Leeroy's had to make, but discovering that the white man he's working for is getting more money from the white cop that's taking the other white man's money off of Leeroy is too much, so he plots to get the once over on the lot of them, involving blackmail, fedora hats, funk and afros.

This doesn't work out too well for Leeroy, because the mob go all Tony Arzenta on his arse. Scratch one pregnant wife and finally the film takes off a bit as Leeroy goes nuts and decides to take down the mob and everyone involved with them.

Filled with so many uses of the N word you'd swear Tarantino wrote the script and sent it back in time, Black Fist is an ultra low budget film that kind of ticks along for a while before the revenge plot takes off. Although it looks as if it cost about twelve dollars to make, this is one of those films where every white guy is evil, all the women get slapped around or killed, and the soundrack is totally funky and enjoyable (probably the best part to be honest). As I said the editing is choppy as hell, the sound varies depending on where the characters are (one scene takes place in a toilet and the reverb makes it hard as hell to understand what's being said), and one main character kind of just disappears towards the end.

It was slow to get going, but it was good enough.
