 3 down and out Harlem thugs gun down Mafia gangsters who are affiliated with Harlem gangsters for 300,000 $'s.
So it's a race between the gangsters and the cops to catch the gunmen.
This is a damn good movie. Besides Yaphet Kotto and Anthoney Quinn giving bang-up performances, ya got Antonio (Huggy Bear!) Fargas, Gloria Hendry, and Anthony Franciosa!
Lotsa violence. Machine guns blazing. And lotsa social commentary too. The best part for me was the authentic NYC slum locals-cuz I lived there, brother! (not in Harlem- I lived in South Bronx. I was born there.)

Oh yeah- and the theme song is tits!

The local censor board banned this so I only got to see it years later: violent and gripping with a great theme tune.

This is one of the best movies from the Golden Years of Blaxploitation (although, it often gets excluded from Blaxploitation conversations because a caucasian actor, Anthony Quinn, has such a prominent role).

Maybe the best of the genre, but NO PAM GRIER!!!   Thumbdown  Great movie, and I love ANTHONY QUINN

The theme song is a CLASSIC that Quentin Tarantino used for his PAM GRIER vehicle JACKIE BROWN.  I love that 'cause o' PAM

There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
