The story involves a white supremist plot to taint the United States water supply with a toxin that is harmless to whites but lethal to blacks. The only obstacles that stand in the way of this dastardly plan are Jim Brown, Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly, who shoot, kick and karate chop their way to final victory.Written by
A sequel to the film was proposed by star Fred Williamson which would've featured the return of him, Jim Brown and Jim Kelly in another adventure after the success of this film. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. and Allied Artists were not really interested in a sequel and the idea was scrapped. See more »

Three the hard way is one of, if not the best blaxplotation movies to come out of the '70s. Directed by Gordon Parks Jr. (Superfly), it is about three black friends aimed at stopping a white supremisist plot of commiting genocide on the black race by poisoning the water supply. The trio consists of Fred Williamson, Jim 'The Dragon' Kelly and Jim Brown on a non-stop thrill ride, a truly fun movie.
