Storyline

Sam Kellog is a modern-day bounty hunter in Los Angeles who decides to track down Victor Hale, a vicious, heavy-set ex-convict with a $20,000 bounty on his head, who is killing former prison guards with a leather-laced steel glove in revenge for them beating him with the same instrument while he was imprisoned.

good for some belly laughs
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic example of 1970's unintentional hilarity. John Saxon plays bounty hunter Sam Kellogg. He is financially down on his luck and is trying to get custody of his young daughter from his estranged wife. Rosie Grier plays a recently released prison inmate who is beating up guards with a lead filled riot glove, hence the title: The Glove. Saxon's character provides an extremely cheesy narration throughout the entire film. It is good for a few chuckles. The scene in the slaughter house where Saxon and a baddie engage in a battle with two racks of raw lamb makes the film worth seeing alone. There is actually a scene where you can tell it was an obvious blooper but they just keep the camera rolling and used it in the final print. See if you can find it.
