Storyline

John Daniels stars as Jonathan Knight, the owner of "Mr. Jonathans", the most successful hair salon for women on the Sunset Strip. Jonathan is tall, muscular, black and ballsy. His reputation as a lover has become so awesome that he is sought after almost as much in that capacity as in his expertise as a hair stylist. Everything is cool for Jonathan until he messes with the mob in an effort to protect his young, attractive receptionist from her former boss. Action explodes when the "lovin' machine" becomes the "killing machine". Jonathan, equipped with chain saw in hand, gets down on the vicious mob gang. Written by Mike White

One Of The Best Movies Ever Made!
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best movie ever made! This movie is so great, I chose this as my name here at IMDb.

There is not a dull moment in this movie. This is a classic tale of good vs. evil. Lot's of character building, nudity, natural beauty, gotta love the car scenes, and the chainsaw killings in the end.

This movie could have only taken place in the 1970s. The plot, the clothes, the cars and the acting is over the top. That is why I love this movie so much. Movies today suck really bad and really too much on CGI with the same actors that portray the same role in every film they do.

The only thing this move is missing is a high-speed car chase scene and perhaps a scene from the airport with a Boeing 707 flight on Pam Am or Branniff. That would make the movie flawless. :)

Go out and ad this DVD to your collection. This is a great movie to watch with your buddies or even on dates. Yes I've even shown this movie on first dates and ended up as lucky as Mr. Jonathan himself. ;)
