Editorial Reviews

Tyrone Tackett's brother wasn't the kind of man to throw his life away. Somebody killed him, plain and simple. And by the time Tyrone crisscrosses L.A. and pieces together the crime, lots of folks are going to pay. With equal amounts of tough and sexy, Bernie Casey portrays Tyrone and Pamela Grier plays a sultry skin-flick star in this first Americanized remake of the iconic Michael Caine action film Get Carter. From Watts to the West Side, from porno parlors to a high-rise, from motel dives to a crime kingpin's sprawling pleasure dome, from corner hangouts to a wildlife preserve, Tyrone covers a lot of real estate, busts a lot of heads. And throughout, star Casey "keeps enough cool for a half a dozen movie heroes" (Roger Greenspun, The New York Times).

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lost classic February 14, 2006
Format:DVD
One of the better 70's movies. Shouldn't be classified as a blaxplotation movie. Really good. Pam Grier looks amazing and she shows it all. Worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit Man-What you goona about the sitataution? October 25, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie was a remake of "Get Carter"with Micheal Caine in 1971.When I saw it again in the 90's,that's when Ifound out that this was a remake of that 1971 film.In fact,it was so good that it made me want to check the original;it was way better than that mess with Stallone.Because it was a Black exploitation film,it has been forgotten by many people.Bernie Casey was just as cool as Michael Caine was in "Get Carter"1971,and just as ruthless.The main character,Tyrone Tackett could stand with Clint Eastwood,Steve Mc Queen and other action characters of the period.Despite it being made by MGM,it wasn't promoted like Shaft,Superfly,etc.So watch and enjoy an raw movie with action,sex,violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bernie Casey at his best! July 22, 2007
Format:DVD
This was probably Bernie Casey's best film as an actor and he has been in some good ones. This was also one of Pam Grier's early movies before Foxy Brown and Coffy. This movie was straight up gangsta. It's also one of those lost 70's classics that is very difficult to find and if you're lucky enough to come across it, you'd better keep it locked away in your archives. I'm glad i got a hold of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent October 1, 2011
By Amiel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After having seen this film some 37 years ago, it did my heart good to own it and see it again. Having a copy of it, pleases me greatly. The film was much as I remembered it, which was also satisfying. At a time when Black actors and actresses, were saving Hollywood, it was good to know that there were also some competent ones.

1.0 out of 5 stars dodgy disc
US 'sploitation remake of Get Carter may be the greatest film ever made, hard to tell due to a skipping disc. Great clothes and a lot of talking.
