Review by Graham (posted on 17-Jul-2007)

Blaxsploitation remake of the superlative "Get Carter" starring Michael Cain. Despite the kitsch attraction of this period piece it makes you see just how great Get Carter was. Inferior in every way -- from script through direction, acting and score. They even throw in a Hollywood feelgood ending. Worth watching to compare scene by scene, line by line with the original... But that's its only attraction.
