A very affectionate spoof of 70's blaxploitation films. In fact, it's so affectionate and close to 70's detail that it pretty much transcends the spoof category and ends up actually becoming one of the best, baddest, daftest, hottest, coolest 1970's blax flick that never was.
It's one of those rare films where nothing goes to waste. Every opportunity is exploited to the fullest, be it a corny line, a bad continuity decision, or the right kind of hat on a pimp. You can feel from the off just how much fun was had making it and you can't help but be swept along. Sometimes i just watch the trailer to cheer myself up.
The soundtrack too is superb. Half of it (mainly the incidental music) is in fact british 70's library music, much of which was actually used in uk tv cop series etc of the 70's. A fine era for music and recording. The rest is all original but all recorded using only equipment made before the early 1970's, thus giving it a 100% authentic feel. Some seriously good songs that are a total pleasure in their own right, written and performed by Adrian Younge.
A happy film with style, heart and a whole hunk of A grade s-o-u-l. Check this sucka out.
