| Obscure blaxplotation
Christopher Joy (Curtis, Up In Smoke) in his only starring role is Big Time Eddie Jones. A small time hustler specializing in fake injury lawsuits. When threatened by his loan shark he turns to robbery to pay him back. Problem is he unwittingly robs the mob. Yes the story is pedestrian but fun. Christopher Joy brings some charisma to his role along with a few other colorful characters. I gave an extra point for the music by Smokey Robinson. Not available on dvd but it's currently on youtube. If you like these 70s movies it's worth a watch. A footnote in the story of blaxplotation. Be sure to check out Joy in the excellent 1979 film Seven.
