Trivia

One of Jim Brown's three favorite films he starred in: the other two are "The Dirty Dozen" and "Mars Attacks!". See more »

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 »

Thank goodness for Directv...
7 February 2001 | by mawhite2001See all my reviews

...because I've been able to watch this film and other great blaxploitation classics.The plot is pretty basic for this genre(the tough black hero avenges the death of his loved one and kick some "whitey" butt in the process).Although the film seems dated,the action pieces more than make up for it.Jim Brown shows a limited range as an actor,but Rip Torn is great as the slimy mobster & Stella Stevens is hot as always as the girlfriend.
