Audience Reviews for Billy Jack Goes to Washington

Billy Jack fights the big bad nuclear plants this time around, and his audience breathes a sigh a relief that this is Laughlin's final sequel.

This is th continuing and final chapter of Billy Jack. If you missed the original and The Trial of Billy Jack, you do not want to miss this one.Laughlin sails in this one and expands the chapter! A sad ending, but well worth the time and effort.

Tom Hakes

They say the movie was banned until 2000. It must have been for copyright infringement. Watch Mr. Smith Goes to Washington instead.
