Movie Reviews

Mediocre action movie!
Mitch Cumstein | San Diego, CA USA | 06/08/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Leroy Jackson is one bad moutha!!! He's wanted by the Mafia, the FBI, drug dealers, and many others!!!Leroy Jackson was one of the first black toughguy characters. Leroy does things his own way. It's his way or the highway.He's also loved by the ladies. He has a way with street hookers. They don't even make him pay!!!Anyway, the script is great and the acting is top-notch. Everyone's trying to keep Leroy down, but he refuses to stay down. My favorite scene is where Leroy is jaywalking and a driver honks at him to get out of the way. An incensed Leroy yells "Kiss my black ***!" Where did the writers come up with such dialogue?!!Buy the Black Godfather. It's a classic!"
