3.0 out of 5 stars "This Whole Scene Is Costin'! Can You Dig It?!"... 22 Sept. 2014
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on
Mega-gangster, King Lathrop (Owen Watson) is being hit, and hit hard. Somebody's moving in on his turf, and roughing up his customers. King's got to get to the bottom of this, and fast! So, he calls in Velvet Smooth (Johnnie Hill) to make things happen. Ms. Smooth calls her crew together, including Frankie (Rene Van Clief), and the grand showdown / throw-down begins! See a dozen masked thugs karate kicked to near extinction! Watch as their manhood is put into dire condition! Velvet Smooth and Frankie are gonna take out the trash! VELVET SMOOTH is another urban crime thriller from 1976. While nowhere close to the bottom-of-the-cesspool horrendousness of THE GUY FROM HARLEM, it's no COFFY or CLEOPATRA JONES either! Even so, it does have that funky, 70s charm going on. Yes, Johnnie Hill acts as though she's still rehearsing her lines, but hey, she's awesome! Looking good in red! Especially kicking major felonious buttocks! Sure, the fight choreography is just south of TNT JACKSON, but hey, Velvet is Smoooooth! Even when the microphone is in plain view, enough so, that it could be a character in itself! Right on... P.S.- Check out that theme song! "Outta sight" doesn't even begin to describe it!...

2.0 out of 5 stars So bad that I had to finshish watching it 28 Dec. 2013
By Pet Wisdom - Published on
This is one of the early Blaxploitation films. The writing, production quality, locations, settings, and acting is just low budget. Normally, one of the highlights of any Blaxploitation film are the Kung Fu style fight scenes. This movie even managed to make that low budget. It had some of the worst choreographed fight scenes that I ever saw. After I figured out that this was not going to be of the same quality as a Coffy or Foxy Brown, I just decided to enjoy it for what it was worth (i.e., an opportunity to see the fashion and mannerisms of people in the 70s).

4.0 out of 5 stars It's A Good Blaxploitation Movie 21 May 2014
By DRS - Published on
If you like 70's blaxploitation movies, you will like "Velvet Smooth". The title character and her cohorts are martial arts experts who run a detective agency, sort of like a black "Charlie's Angels". Considering the movie was made in the 70's, the special effects and choreography in the scenes are acceptable for that era. The plot was typical for Blaxploitation movies but with a slight twist. Just see the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars The worst movie ever? AWESOME BAD 11 Dec. 2007
By Matthew D. Willner - Published on
So bad. Atrocious. The worst fight scenes ever. If you love Blaxsploitation you'll love it - for how truly low budget a film can be. I've seen better acting in porn movies, and better film on teeth ! Hilarious.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Movie Without (Fill in the Blank, It'll Fit) ______ 3 April 2006
By South Beach Diet - Published on

Some will tell you this is a bad movie. heck, almost everybody will. And it IS a bad movie, but there are different flavours of bad.

I like movies about chicks fighting. (What can I say? Love me them strong female role models.) There are lots and lots of fights in here, and lots of guys getting beat up by Velvet Smooth (played by Johnnie Hill) and her partners in detective work.

What really ruins this movie is the DVD. The picture transfer is the worst I have ever seen. Lots of material seems to be missing; the movie begins and ends abruptly, with hardly any lead-in or fade-out; I could almost swear that they did not get to the end of the flick, just stopped when they ran out of the $1 they were budgeted.

The subtitles don't work. If you are the hearing-impaired (I certainly am), you need the subtitles if you are to have any chance of spotting a plotline. The thing says it has subtitles, but when you turn them on, no text appears (not even white text on a mostly white background -- I hate it when people do that, but we don't even get that much).

No extras in this one (what would they do for a making-of featurette? Show Johnnie Hill being worked on by her acting coach?). Hopefully, there will be no Special Edition or Director's Cut of this movie.

But, at least I got to see some chicks in fight scenes. Since I couldn't follow the plot and read what people were saying, instead I tried counting how many times they hit a guy in the groin. I spotted forty-six (no lie!). Is that sick and hilarious or is that just a bad movie?
