Jada Pinkett Smith,
Marvin Bookman is a small shop owner in Gary, Indiana, USA. After he sees a drive-by shooting of Laurie Thompson's son by a local gang, he gives up the license number of the car to the police. The gang doesn't like this so they go to the store and rough him up. Soon, John Bookman comes to town to set the wrong things right. With the help of Laurie and his old friend Jake, they attempt to take back the streets and show the new breed of gang members what the true originals can do.Written by

Critics likened the film to Boyz n the Hood, and pictures like that, Larry Cohen stated, "And they said it was a serious commentary on the conditions in Gary, Indiana and the people, and a worthwhile movie. And a New York critic said it was the most fun he'd had at the movies all year. So in a way it was a better picture than Twister, and I'm sure over the years it's picked up most of its audience on DVD and cable". See more »

Mr. Bookman, Mr. Trevor it's time we neighbor's met.
Let me explain something to you my brother, just because Damien's dead doesn't mean you can move in, I won't be that far away.
I'm back home blood,
[point's to John]
and I'm working with him, just so you know.
Well, there goes the neighborhood.

It's like old home wee when stars like Jim Brown (Slaughter, Black Gunn), Fred Williamson (Starsky & Hutch), Pam Grier, Ron O'Neal (Superfly), Richard Roundtree (Shaft), and Paul Winfield (Sounder) get together to teach some young punks a lesson. Heavys of the 70's blaxploitation genre are called home to get some revenge and clean up the town. Lots of talking and shooting and good old fashioned fisticuffs.
Pam Grier (Coffy, Foxy Brown) is back in the form we like. She was one of the first female action stars in Hollywood. Looking forward to a retrospective this weekend when they replay two of her best.
