Goofs

A character uses a revolver with a suppressor attached. Revolvers cannot be suppressed (other than a specially manufactured Russian model) because most of their noise comes from the cylinder gap before the barrel which is behind the suppressor. See more »

"Slaughter's gonna blow your mind..."
28 February 2000 | by Driver-5See all my reviews

...so goes Billy Preston's song. MGM had SHAFT (1971) with Richard Roundtree, AIP had SLAUGHTER with Jim Brown. After his parents are blown up by the Mafia, Vietnam Vet Brown's gonna kick some greasy Italian ass (Rip Torn), and along the way he gets a sidekick (Steve McQueen's mate Don Gordon), sleeps with Stella Stevens and generally causes havoc down in Mexico. It's not very good, but there are some decent action scenes and it's a hell of a lot better than some of the Blaxploitation garbage.
