Editorial Reviews

Cold as ice, hard as steel, and dressed to thrill, a private investigator known only as "Mr. T" (Robert Hooks) is hired by two thugs to find out who's stealing form their gambling operation. Armed with deadly martial arts mastery and an arsenal of weapons, T battles his way through a dangerous maze of violence, turf wars and even murder - while still finding time for the ladies. Packed with original soul music by Marvin Gaye, movies just don't get any cooler than Trouble Man!

It's interesting another should mention his/her disappointment over the music included for the DVD release of Trouble Man (1972), composed by the legendary Marvin Gaye. The way I understand it Gaye wasn't pleased with how the music came out for the movie when originally released back in the day, and went back and re-recorded it for the soundtrack album (I got this information from another website)...I'm unsure if this is true or not, but it might explain why the music for the film is different than the actual music on the soundtrack album. Written by John D.F. Black, who worked on a slew of television series ("The Fugitive", "Hawaii Five-O", "Mary Tyler Moore"), along with a film or two, most notably Shaft (1971), and directed by Ivan Dixon, who also worked on a great many television series like The Rockford Files" (1974), "Starsky and Hutch" (1975), and "Wonder Woman" (1976), to name a few, Trouble Man stars Robert Hooks (Airport '77, Fast-Walking). Also appearing is silky voiced actor Paul Winfield (Damnation Alley, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, The Terminator), William Smithers (Deathsport), Paula Kelly (Soylent Green, Uptown Saturday Night), blaxploitation veteran and one time Bond villain Julius Harris (Superfly, Black Caesar, Live and Let Die), Bill Henderson (Cornbread, Earl and Me), and Ralph Waite, whom many 1970s television viewers may recognize as patriarch John Walton Sr., from the series "The Waltons".

Hooks plays T (Mr. T if you're nasty), a licensed private investigator (which means he can carry a gun), among other things, who dresses sharply, maintains an office in a pool hall, drives a big, fancy car, and whom people turn to when they have no other recourse and need fast action.

This movie may not grab you at first, but it's definitely a 5 star film for this genre. The confusion about the theme song from a previous review comes from the fact that a different mix of the song was used in the movie. There is no one else singing over Marvin Gaye, that's him singing in his lower register. The version released on the soundtrack features his higher register throughout the song. Check out TrueKnowledgeNation.com for more info on this and other films from that era.

Anyone that is a serious fan of this genre, or is as fasinated with the 70's as I am should jump on purchasing this film without hesitation. I had seen Robert Hooks in smaller roles such as his part in Passenger 57. This man in my opinion stepped into the skin of this character. I read where someone posted that they where disappointed with the score because it wasn't the original, but it sounded great to me. I've never heard the first soundtrack but im hard to satisfy; and I liked it. A must have !!! ..... Mr.T: Where you want it at mutha?!

Known mainly for the soundtrack done by the great Marvin Gaye, 'Trouble Man' is a really good movie. After watching Robert Hooks in this movie it is a shame nobody gave him more roles to fit his talent. The man is every bit as smooth as Richard Roundtree's 'Shaft' but wait, Richard Roundtree didn't get too many starring roles either. Somebody slept on some exceptional talent in the '70's

I have been dying to see this film for years and finally decided to buy it here on Amazon.com for its reasonably cheap price ($9.99) and also because it is a part of Amazon's promotional 4 for 3 discount. I am happy I bought it.

Sure, like many out there, my interest in this movie was based on the fact that Marvin Gaye scored it. In this regard, you will not be too pleased by the way the film handles it. I suggest by the album Trouble Man, as it is quite cheap and very good. Like much of Gaye's music, it is much better if you listen to the music in its entirety.

As for the movie, I have to admit, like Shaft, there is a "it's so bad it's good" quality to this film. I thought that the storyline was extremely simple and I did not feel close to any of the characters, simply because everything we learned about them was only surface deep. But so is the nature of many Blaxploitation films, therefore in this case I will have to agree with another reviewer and say that this film is very good for its genre. While woman are basically nonexistent, you'll enjoy the shoot-outs, blood and scenes (which lover's of 70's colors and style will love). Robert Hook's character is also just great. He is so cool (in 70's terminology), casually aware of everything going on. His overall persona is big enough to match the best of stars from the Blaxploitation era. He walks around and talks as though he owns the world...and in this film, he does.

If you're a fan of the genre, you will love it. I have a pretty good collection of Blaxploitation films, good, bad, and so bad it's good. This would be good, really good. Great sound track by Marvin Gaye of course, and just a better story than Shaft. I think Shaft gets so much credit because of the fact that it too has an excellent soundtrack, but I think this is a better made film. For my money Robert Hicks is more of a badass than Richard Roundtree. Good fun slice of the 70's, you can't go wrong with this one.
