Trivia

One of Jim Brown's three favorite films he starred in: the other two are "The Dirty Dozen" and "Mars Attacks!". See more »

Goofs

Rip Torn not holds the Luger with which he shoots Don Falice incorrectly, he actually blinks both times he fires it indicating that he had no experience =, nor training, in the use of firearms. Considering that he's supposed to be a prolific killer, this makes no sense. See more »

Quotes

Hoffo: [Hoffo sees Ann staring at Slaughter] What are you looking at?
Ann: A handsome man.
Hoffo: [Under his breath] Lousy, stinking nigger.

"Slaughter's gonna blow your mind..."
28 February 2000 | by Driver-5See all my reviews

...so goes Billy Preston's song. MGM had SHAFT (1971) with Richard Roundtree, AIP had SLAUGHTER with Jim Brown. After his parents are blown up by the Mafia, Vietnam Vet Brown's gonna kick some greasy Italian ass (Rip Torn), and along the way he gets a sidekick (Steve McQueen's mate Don Gordon), sleeps with Stella Stevens and generally causes havoc down in Mexico. It's not very good, but there are some decent action scenes and it's a hell of a lot better than some of the Blaxploitation garbage.
