Slaughter's Big Rip-off

Jim Brown, the superbad ex-Green Beret of Slaughter, returns in this 1973 blaxploitation flick from Samuel Z. Arkoff's American-International Pictures. It's a competent piece of action cinema—the opening, in which Slaughter and a friend are attacked by a machine gunner in a swooping biplane, is particularly good. Resplendent in a disco shirt and big 70s glasses, Ed McMahon plays the mob kingpin at the center of Slaughter's investigation, which is frequently impeded by women dragging the hero into bed. Gordon Douglas directed, and the James Brown score features the hardest-working bongos in show business. 93 min.
