Plot & Details

Blaxploitation icon Fred Williamson directed and stars in this action thriller written by his wife, Linda. Amidst the rough-and-tumble drug-trade of the inner city, a young, well-intentioned basketball phenom gets in too deep. Before long, the gangsters come knocking and the teen's best friend winds up dead. Enter Williamson and fellow blaxploitation alums Bernie Casey, Jim Brown, and Ron O'Neal. The band of old-timers sets out to even the score and clean up the streets, but they'll have to get through a tough hitman played by Gary Busey first.
