Lait contacts his friends, some of the baddest cats around. Jagger Daniels (Fred Williamson) and Mister Keyes (Jim Kelly). The three try getting Lait's girl back, but soon discover there is much more to the story. Namely, genocide. It seems a group of neo-Nazis has created a drug they plan to disperse through the water systems of Los Angeles, Detroit, and Washington DC. It apparently does not effect white people, based on some sketchy science based on sickle cell anemia.
This is a pretty awesome film, both by action and Blaxploitation standards. Jim Brown is the weakest actor in it, but is pretty awesome in his action scenes. Fred Williamson is, well Fred Williamson (which is pretty damn good), and Jim Kelly adds a little traditional Kung-Fu personality to his role, particularly by shunning firearms.
One part that is interesting, on a few levels, is the brief inclusion of Countess (Pamela Serpe), Empress (Irene Tsu), and Princess (Marie O'Henry). They are special interrogators that Jagger knows, and are brought in to get info out of a henchman. They are highly cruel, though their methods are not show. Once they have softened the henchman up, Jagger and Keyes try talking to him and the man is a mess. Keyes does not like what is going on, nor the three women. It is nice to see some difference of opinion where methods are concerned in an action film.
