Not as "bad" as some people say...
23 August 2008 | by (Meppel, Holland) – See all my reviews

Entertaining movie about a Vietnam veteran who gets into trouble with the African American brother of a friend of his who was killed in Vietnam. When racist cops get involved, the situation escalates...

Clark will not go down in history as a great director or actor, but at least he had the guts to address some racial issues in a low budget blaxploitation movie. He doesn't take the easy way out.

Not only the white people are racists this time. In The Bad Bunch it's a human trademark.

I've read a some negative reviews about this one. Bad acting, directing and disturbing stereotypes. Come on, it's still a B-movie. Clark is no Scorcese. But he did make a damn entertaining movie, which is more than I can say for the majority of blaxploitation movies from that era...
