Blaxploitation coasts along confidently in this hilarious no-brainer.
11 October 1998 | by dreckSee all my reviews

Bought it on 16mm. Seriously flawed character motivation and gratuitous violence... Holes in the plot large enough to drive a '71 Caddy through... All the elements necessary for a hilarious and bewildering movie experience. The soundtrack is great although it surfaces about as frequently as the Loch ness Monster, bubbling up at unexpected and inappropriate moments. And how the hell did Martin Landau get in here? Bruce Glover is a shining beacon of kitsch. Solid, baby.
