02.12.08Internet This was one of the many movies that stood out for me when I read the book Sleazoid Express, comparing it to other race hate movies like Fight for your Life and Poor Pretty Eddie but with more of an action movie slant. I kind of tempered that expectation with the fun that's generally associated with the Bishop/Frost movies when I sat down to watch this. There were a few chuckles here and there (like when it cut to Hitler footage for the opening titles or when the white mobster guy enters a barbershop and says "Hello, Black gentlemen") but for the most part it was pretty serious-minded sex and violence.

Kinda not as good as I thought it'd be actually. While the story was generally better than it had to be, there were still some slow spots where it seemed like everyone's method to seem more important or authoritative was to just speak slowly. I liked parts of it very much. Others, not so much.

On a more personal bloggy note, I finally broke down and got a full-time job that's not from home, so I think I'll take advantage of my last day of freedom by doubling up on the race hate movies! I'm thinking Lee Marvin and Richard Burton.
