Richard Roundtree reeks of cool vibe and Isaac Hayes' voice on the title song is even cooler and got surprisingly through the censors. Highly influential as it was the first true movie made for and by the Afro Americans in the States. It has a great realistic gritty Harlem atmosphere and is perfect nostalgic fun.
A little too conservative for my liking. I prefer my blaxploitation to be dirty, raw and have some serious attitude, which was kind of lacking here. However, the soundtrack is killer and although the film itself is quite entertaining and well made, I will have to chalk it up to personal preference as I can understand its influence.
