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

Rip Torn not holds the Luger with which he shoots Don Falice incorrectly, he actually blinks both times he fires it indicating that he had no experience =, nor training, in the use of firearms. Considering that he's supposed to be a prolific killer, this makes no sense. See more »

Quotes

Hoffo: [Hoffo sees Ann staring at Slaughter] What are you looking at?
Ann: A handsome man.
Hoffo: [Under his breath] Lousy, stinking nigger.

"You jam it straight up your ass, white man."
16 November 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

After his parents are killed by the mob, a former Green Beret (Jim Brown) joins forces with "The Man" to get his revenge. An enjoyable Blaxploitation film that's not without its share of flaws. Obviously, NFL great Jim Brown's acting leaves a lot to be desired. He doesn't do well in the quieter, more emotional scenes. When he's ticked off and kicking butt, though, he's fun to watch. Cameron Mitchell is fine as a cop. Rip Torn is the villain and he spends most of the movie squinting and saying the N word. Don Gordon is amusing as a sort of comic relief sidekick. Highlight of the movie is sexy Stella Stevens, in particular her memorable nude scenes. This isn't one of my favorite Blaxploitation flicks but it's solid with some nice action and T&A. Give it a look if you're a fan of the genre or a fan of nice boobs.
