Violence and racial tension punctuate this fast moving study of prejudice and discrimination. THE BAD BUNCH is the story of a black gang who run the streets of Watts. It is also the story of Jim (played by director/screenwriter Greydon Clark), a white man who tries to befriend them. Prejudice stands in the way of any friendship and turns black against white in a bloody act of vengeance. This film, set in the mid ‘70s, does much to show how society has progressed but, to some, it may seem that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

If you want a hit of the early 70s with midriffs, afros, posters of Bobby Kennedy, Muhammed Ali, and sets that include the book Seize the Moment you will definitely get an early 70s fix, with a fitting soundtrack with free jazz and rock. The movie starts with a white and black soldier in Vietnam questioning about whether race relations will change for the better after the war when the black soldier is shot when the black soldier is killed by a shot to the gut. . . when the white soldier goes to Watts to tell the father of his friend about the last moment the gang-member brother of the deceased gives him a hostile welcome . . . the racist cops don't help matters any, of course . . . so, one wonders how the black soldier might have finished his sentence about "one thing that would help" [race relations] if he hadn't been blown away.
It's worth noting that this film is listed in IMDB as "Tom" (1973) It's a good reminder that racism is one hell of an ugly tango, because ignorance knows no color except red. And there is a LOT of that in this film. Belongs in a history class, in a way.
Yup, "ok" about sums this up. I have absolutely no idea about what I just watched. lol.
