I had been looking for a copy of this movie for sometime and finally got myself an original Prism Video pre-record off of eBay. What a disappointment! I'd been looking forward to at least a decent blaxploitation feature, but this piece of junk would hardly qualify as a competent TV film. Kevin McCarthy, always a hammy actor to begin with, is way, way over the top in this one, practically foaming at the mouth in many of his scenes. The plot is so full of astounding contrivances (for example, mere hours after he escapes from prison, Raymond St. Jacques' face is on the front page of the local paper - which must have been printed at midnight to reach Kevin McCarthy's front porch when it does!) that after not much time the whole plot becomes totally risible. You do get a brief glimpse of Dana Wynter's nipple, but this is hardly worth having to sit through a 106 minute feature that should have clocked in under 90.
