Editorial Reviews

BLACK GUNN is a classic blaxploitation crime drama featuring nonstop action, a hot soul soundtrack and amazing fashion and style. The film stars cult legends Jim Brown (He Got Game, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka), Brenda Sykes (Mandingo, Cleopatra Jones), Oscar(r)-winner Martin Landau (1998 Best Supporting Actor, Ed Wood), Luciana Paluzzi (Thunderball), Bernie Casey (Brian's Song) and Bruce Glover (Ghost World, Diamonds are Forever) with a cameo by pro football star Vida Blue. When a group of revolutionaries rob a Mafia-run gambling operation, nightclub owner Gunn tries to protect his politically radical brother Scotty from the mobsters and the police who come looking for him. But after Scotty is violently murdered, Gunn hits the streets looking for revenge. Chasing down the killer in his white Rolls Royce, Gunn hooks up with his brother's revolutionary friends and the cops for an explosiveshowdown with the mob boss and his gang.

If you're tired (like me) of The Man keepin' you down, then Jim Brown is the brother you got to dig! Black Gunn is a satisfying slice of Mob mayhem vs. righteous dudes. Takin' it upside the head is Martin Landau as the Mob boss, doing a lot with a relatively small role. The soundtrack is real fine, especially the chase scene at the horsetrack. But can you believe that white boy trying to outrun the World's Greatest Running Back? Disrespect The Man and check this out!

Utterly dull blacksploitation that consists of a series of scenes that are boring and hysterically anti-white. The anti-honky messages are part of the game, but they don't add up at all, they get tedious after the first cliché of "whites roughing up the blacks". There's some 70's music and a few low-budget gun fights but it lacks any story or sense of urgency. Features a few actors who are recognizable. Martin Landau as Capelli, Stephen McNally as Laurento, Bernie Casey as Seth, Gary Conway as Adams, Bruce Glover as Ray Kriley and Jim Brown as Gunn.

I have recently developed an appeciation for low budget British filmmaker Robert Hartford-Davis (1923-1977) after watching a handful of his horror films such as BLACK TORMENT (1965), CORRUPTION (1968), and THE FIEND aka BEWARE THE BRETHREN (1972). The constant thread running through these and such films as BLACK GUNN (1973) are imaginative camerawork, crisp but non-flashy editing, and consistently interesting performances from his actors. In that sense Hartford-Davis is sort of a poor man's Michael Winner (literally since he never had the budgets Winner did for his films) which is meant as a compliment. I have a strong admiration for directors like Edgar G. Ulmer, Edward L. Cahn, and now Hartford-Davis who could create numerous memorable moments out of the small budgets that they had to work with. Small budgets also meant that they were stuck in genre films like horror or exploitation (Blaxploitation in this case) but even in this category the cream always manages to rise to the top.

Despite the title, BLACK GUNN is not a remake of the old TV series PETER GUNN refitted for an African-American audience. It's an urban crime melodrama set in L.A. with Jim Brown as the successful owner of a night club whose younger brother rips off the mob. We all know happens when you do that. Throw in some black militancy, some deliberately provocative racist dialogue, a delightfully droll performance by Martin Landau as the chief baddie, and B movie veterans Bruce Glover and William Campbell as a pair of deliriously sleazy hoods and you've got classic entertainment early 70s style (I'm sure Quentin Tarantino knows this particular movie).

Yes, another film from the 70s series that has great theme for its time. Great for the avid collector of this genre.
