Hell up in Harlem (1973) - FILM
Starting off RIGHT where Black Caesar left off, Hell up in Harlem brings all our favorite crime riddled characters back to the screen and switches from the dramatic tone of it's predecessor to that of a comic-book beat-em up action picture. Williamson brings the physicality once more, but he's forced to waddled through some clunky set-pieces and deliver some terrible lines as he sets up a roaring path of revenge . It's a straight up exploitation picture (That feels padded) bereft of real involving conflict that feels more like an epilogue than it's own entity. Watchable, but disappointing.
