    Synopsis


    Black Belt Jones
    Robert Clouse, director of Enter the Dragon, returned with this blaxploitation actioner starring Jim Kelly as an instructor at a martial-arts school in the Watts section of Los Angeles. Teaming with former Bond girl Gloria Hendry, Kelly saves the school and Hendry's dad (Scatman Crothers) from the Mob. Eric Laneuville, Malik Carter, and Love Boat bartender Ted Lange are also onhand. Kelly was one of the subgenre's most popular heroes at the time, starring in films like Black Terminator and Black Eliminator by the score. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    Black Samson
    William Smith and a gang of white drug-dealers try to muscle in on black nightclub owner Rockne Tarkington in this silly blaxploitation film. What they don't know is that Tarkington -- who has a pet lion -- is skilled at martial arts and will not give in without a fight. Abby's Carol Speed co-stars with skinflick vet John Alderman. Director Chuck Bail returned with Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    Hot Potato
    Karate expert Jones (Jim Kelly) is sent to Thailand to free a politico's daughter (Judith Brown) from enslavement to an evil war monger (Samuel Hiona). ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

    Three the Hard Way
    The "three" alluded to in the title are played by Jim Brown, Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly. Letting their fists do all the talking, the hard-nosed trio takes on a neofascist organization. It is the avowed purpose of this all-white hate group to "cleanse" Los Angeles, Detroit and Washington DC of all blacks. To do this, they plan to poison the drinking water with a secret formula that affects only African Americans. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Jim Brown, Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly all in one movie together. Gordon Parks had the golden touch for presenting movies with depth, character and charisma. Only Gordon Parks original style provided the richness of African-American actors of that time. When exploitative movies of African Americans were demeaning. Gordon Parks showed African Americans with dignity and character to be admired.

      If you're into blaxploitation, or you want to check out some classic, over-the-top action from the 70's, this is for you. I've only watched 'Three the Hard Way' so far, and that alone made this 4-movie compilation worth it. Buy it now!
