Trivia

In the film, there is a prostitute hangout at the corner of 27th Street and Market Street/Avenue D in Galveston. This particular location was once a department store during the turn of the 20th Century after the Galveston Storm of 1900 and during the 1970s - it became a local bar. The building sat vacant for decades and sadly, was demolished in 2002 and redeveloped. The windowed building seen in the background is owned by the Jesse Tree Ministries since 1996. See more »

Goofs

The building exterior of the Galveston Police Department's Central Headquarters where H.J. and Vega jump is totally different from the one seen where both men are hiding where the police cruisers disperse. The unknown exterior where both men jump could be either the Galveston County Courthouse complex located at Ball/19th Street or the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston main campus.

Well written movie for it's time
19 January 2006 | by gacdoneSee all my reviews

Having been a part of the Blaxploitation movie era, This is one of the few movies produced at that time that was a thriller, mystery and who done it. With a African American cast without portraying the young people as drug-runners, dealers or Junkies. It also portrayed them having have a positive relationship with law enforcement officers. I am starting a movement for an updated/remake of this movie. As a film editor and graphic artist I produced an updated poster as a basis for a remake of this movie topped with the soundtrack from Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra...It is truly one of my favorites. Although the cast was completed with virtually unknown actors at the time. Although very dark. It was still very well acted out
