Trivia

In an interview with Jay Slater, Fred Williamson told how he made this movie during the shooting of Enzo G. Castellari's _Inglorious Bastards (1977)_. He would take the camera equipment and crew every Saturday and Sunday and film "Mr Mean", unknown to the producer at that time. He wrote the story Monday to Friday and shot on the weekends what he had written that week. See more »

The Hammer hits a good one out on his own
18 November 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the mid-70's, Fred Williamson began his own productions away from the big and mini-major studios that had been home to his best (and worst) films. After the Jesse Crowder duo and the really bad Mean Johnny Barrows, this one had a nice feel, good music, lots of smart and tough lines, and good action. Can it be stilted and rough-around-the-edges at times? Of course, but overall it's one of the better Hammers from his company and maybe the best of his directorial stuff.
