Movie Reviews

If God Were A Movie....
Marshall Dougherty | UCONN | 04/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Black Six is a masterpiece. Not only does it capture the spirit of an era, it brings the viewer back to a time when bike gangs roamed the open road and trouble was just a hate-crime away. With a soundtrack to be envied and special effects that will leave you in awe, The Black Six is all you could ever hope for in a movie. With lessons about love, life, and the nature of change, The Black Six is the end-all be-all of Blackxploitation films. I loved it."

"One of the worst movies I've ever seen.Having said that, "The Black Six" (a joke gift from a goofy friend), is fully enjoyable.It looks like it was shot in a couple of days using bits and pieces of discarded scripts that had been haphazardly glued together.The best part is watching these football legends (and they are legends, 4 of them are in the Hall of Fame) act.Of particular interest is the hilarious method that Lem Barney uses to quell his opponents. Lem (who I don't think had one line in the movie) practices a type of martial arts that can be described as "Statue Fu").He leans forward and places his foot on the chest of an opponent. That's it, and that seems to be enough to immobilize the opponent.Other great awful scenes abound.Of particular interest for Football fans is watching Carl eller in scenes where he is shirtless. Eller was considered a big man at the time and at 6' 4" and about 250, he is an impressive specimen. But 30 years later, there are wide receivers with those measurements. He would be about 80 pounds too light to make it in today's NFL.Maybe the "Black 6" should have been chasing steroid dealers instead of southern racists.Wonder if it's too late for a sequel?"
