Fred ¨the Hammer¨ Williamson is the black Ed Wood
12 January 2005 | by EdwardRollsSee all my reviews

This was HORRIBLE! You may be tempted to watch it for a chance to see Richard Pryor in his prime, but don't. Pryor isn't funny, and the film is a complete mess. It was obviously made very cheaply, but Fred ¨the Hammer¨ seems to have trying to make a bad film here. Everything appears to have been shot in one take, and I'm guessing they didn't even have a screenplay written up for this one. It's just Fred getting into about fifty brawls, and Pryor doing his con man shtick. Don't get me wrong, I like both these guys, but this was a truly terrible film

The movie does have a cool theme song, but you'll get tired of it after about the 40th time!
