Goofs

At the very beginning of the film, Slaughter's father is seen sitting in his car, turns the key, and it explodes. The entire car is engulfed in flames, which shoot 20 feet into the air; the camera lingers on the inferno. The very next scene, we see Slaughter sitting in the ER. The doctor comes out of surgery and tells him that his father didn't make it. I'll say...the man was cremated. See more »

Pretty Bad
17 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Rip Torn makes for a good heavy, but the action sequences are poorly choreographed (sic?) . I've always liked Jim Brown as an actor, but this is not one of his best. Bad guys get shot on rooftops and they seemingly jump off when hit. All kinds of gunfire come from the mobsters but our "heroes" never get shot.............and on the other hand, our heroes never miss. And what happens to Jim Brown's female friend and Cameron Mitchell towards the end of the movie? It seems the screenwriter forgot about them..........watch it and see what I mean. Good enough for one viewing, especially if you want to see Stella Stevens in a rare nude scene and that's it.
