Storyline

General Ahmed has started an inner-city People's Army to try and relieve the misery of the citizens of Watts. When the locals are put under increasing pressure by Mafia thugs, Ahmed's second-in-command Colonel Kojah asks for permission to start a protection squad to take more direct action. Ahmed fears this protection squad will just turn into a vigilante mob, and his prediction soon proves correct. Will Ahmed be able to wrest control back from the power-mad Kojah, or will he be the mob's next victim? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

THE BLACK GESTAPO (Lee Frost, 1975) *1/2
7 October 2006 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

I had been intrigued by this title ever since I first saw it at my local DVD rental outlet; however, it turned out to be a disappointment - both as a blaxploitation effort and, more importantly, its supposed indictment of organized violence. While it occasionally throws in an image featuring Hitler and the true Gestapo, the film is really just the typical action fare with blacks rising up against the arrogance of the dominant white population (characterized by a faction of sleazy gangsters led by the director himself!) - after which the black "saviors" get too big for their boots and are themselves put down by their own people (without ever resolving the black vs. white conflict and, in fact, the latter are conveniently forgotten after the halfway point!). There's violence and nudity aplenty but no discernible talent - and, like I said, the possibilities offered by the theme are barely scraped...
