Not worth to watch
8 April 2002 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

This blaxploitation movie about a hit man, played by Roger E. Mosley, who later became a co-star of Tom Selleck in "Magnum", isn't really worth to watch. William Smith plays his boss Martelli. But he doublecrosses Mosley and so he gets his bill at the end. Surely he is the bad guy, again. I've seen this movie somewhere in 1994 and I can tell you: If Bill Smith wouldn't be in it, it would not be worth to watch!
