After a Senator suddenly dies after completing (and sealing) an investigation into the nuclear power industry, the remaining Senator and the state Governor must decide on a person who will play along with their shady deals and not cause any problems. They decide on Billy Jack, currently sitting in prison after being sent to jail at the end of his previous film, as they don't expect him to be capable of much, and they think he will attract young voters to the party. Billy is pardoned, released, and nominated, after which he begins his duties. He soon notices that things aren't right, and starts trying to find out just what is going on.Written by

Tom Laughlin blamed the movie's limited release due to a gigantic government conspiracy to suppress the movie. Actually, Laughlin, at the time, was fighting several lawsuits filed against him that prevented him from giving the movie as big a release as his previous movies. Laughlin then tried to get other movie distributors to release the movie. Samuel Z. Arkoff, head of American-International Pictures, recalled several years later his going to Laughlin's house to watch a screening of the movie. Arkoff recalled, "Tom had gained about forty pounds since the earlier pictures. The new film just didn't recapture the charming and disarming character Tom had played in Billy Jack (1971)." Feeling that the movie was not commercial, Arkoff passed on the chance to distribute the movie, and the other distributors, for whom Laughlin screened the movie, also decided not to pick up the distribution rights for the same reason.

this fourth and final film in the Billy Jack franchise was never released theatrically.i thought it was a better film the the previous one,the T4ial of Billy jack,which i found tedious,bloated and preachy.this one is not as heavy.there is very little action.it/s more drama than anything.basically.billy jack become a senator and quickly realizes how corrupt things are in Washington.i'll leaver the plot at that.on a side note,i noticed that the run time is listed as 155 minutes,which is interesting since the version i watched was about 111 minutes or so.i also noticed on message boards that someone had seen the original cut at a preview some thirty plus years ago,and had noticed that the DVD version was cut to pieces.it would be interesting to see that version.maybe some day,that version will see the light of day.as for this version,it was decent enough.for me,Billy Jack Goes to Washington is a 6/10
