Black Heat1976

  • 2.7
Timothy Brown (NASHVILLE, STUD BROWN) stars as "Kicks" Carter, a tough-as-nails LA cop and one bad dude hot on the trail of a black mob boss named Guido. Guido and his sleazy henchman Ziggy (Russ Tamblyn, Twin Peaks) are planning a big-time, drugs-for-munitions trade, but Kicks and partner Tony (Geoffrey Land) stand in the way of it going down. When Tony is killed in a spectacular car chase and crash, Kicks decides it's high time for payback, and nobody better get in HIS way. With the help of Alphonse, his ghetto contact, and a beautiful TV news reporter who can't get enough of him, Kicks tracks Guido and his hoods into the desert for the final vicious showdown and explosive shoot-out. And if Kicks has any say, those low-lifes are gonna pay!

Man, the director must have been stoked to get the funding for a plane, because we get to see it flying, for minutes on end, without any edits. There's also a cool title sequence that probably left everyone exhausted, because nothing else in the movie looks like it took nearly as much effort to produce.

I also like how this was a time in movies where "halt" was still being used by the police as a serious way of detaining suspects. There are also a bunch of terrible shootouts that would have been more believable if the cast had shouted "ka-pow pow" as they pointed their guns.

ITS A PRETTY ENTERTAINING BLACK EXPLOITATION FILM FAST PACED DRUG MOVIE AND EXCITING MOST OF THE TIME QUITE A FEW CAR CHASES AND SEVERAL EXPLOSIONS MADE IT GOOD ENOUGH TO WATCH!

As Kicks said, 'That's some heavy sh*t'. This Blacxploitation film does little to further the genre but it is titilating. Not quite what you might see on late late night TV this small budget pic clearly had a story to tell, they should have spent a little more time on the continuity.
