Overview

Synopsis

Original Gangstas
Larry Cohen, who directed a number of interesting and subversive exploitation films in the 1970s and 1980s, including Black Caesar and Hell Up in Harlem, reunited some of the biggest stars of the blaxploitation era for this tough-minded action opus. John Bookman (Fred Williamson) is a successful football coach who was born in Gary, Indiana but now lives in Los Angeles. When Bookman's father is shot, he returns home for the first time in years to discover that Gary has been all but taken over by a number of brutally violent youth gangs. Bookman learns that his father was shot in retaliation for going to the police after a young man was killed by gang bangers outside his grocery store; even worse, the kid who pulled the trigger was a member of the Rebels, the gang that he helped form as a teenager. Outraged, Bookman joins forces with the boy's parents, who also happen to be old friends: Jake Trevor (Jim Brown) and Laurie Thompson (Pam Grier). John, Laurie, and Jake organize the neighborhood against the gangs, with John's old gang brothers Bubba (Ron O'Neal) and Slick (Richard Roundtree) tagging along to show the young gangstas what the old school can do. If Williamson, Brown, Grier, O'Neal, and Roundtree all look a bit older than they did in their glory days, they all still boast charisma to spare, and anyone who liked their older films will have a good time with this one. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Kill Reflex
Kill Reflex is a Po' Boy production, produced and directed by that company's founder, Fred Williamson. Williamson also assumes the starring role in this violent throwback to the glory days of Blaxploitation. He plays a Chicago cop whose partner is killed; when he wants answers, he discovers that his superiors are covering up for someone. Unlike certain other African American stars, Fred Williamson is an equal opportunity butt-kicker; he'll knock the stuffings out of anyone, regardless of race, color or creed. Co-starring in Kill Reflex are one-time James Bond girl Maud Adams and former "Buford Pusser" Bo Svenson. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
