Another boring women behind bars movie, so boring and predictable, I didn't watch the whole thing.

Woman prisoners + Pam Grier + Sid Haig + The 70's + Guns and loads of bad guys = Exploitation Heaven!

How many elements of 70s exploitation can you fit in one film?
I'm sure this film comes close to the maximum as it includes: Women in prison, shout-outs, bare breasts, shower scenes, lesbian guards, violent revolutionaries, gansters running prostitution rings, incredibly red blood, blaxploitation (Pam Grier), a funky-ass soundtrack, distribution by American International, icon John Ashley's involvment, stabbing, strangling, attemted rape, shot abroad for tax cuts and cheap labor, and not last (but the last I'll mention) and definetly not least SID HAIG!

No, the women-in-prison films generally didn't have sequels, they just recycled the same actors and plots under different names.

A thoroughly sleazy and enjoyable sexploitation flick.

It's a glorious sight to see, all the bad clothing, the 'rebels' who spend half the film waiting around for the blonde white girl, it's pretty amusing.

Definitely recommended.

Pretty killer Blaxploitation flick. I own a copy. and I suggest you get one too. Just a suggestion though, it isn't for everyone.

You can never go wrong with classic Pam Grier, especially when she is alongside a feisty white woman who is pushing her buttons.

Exploitation film gender-bends The Defiant Ones.

Solid, exploitative stuff, with Pam Grier and Margaret Markov as two chained-together inmates who escape from a Filipino women's prison. I have a fondness for pictures that mish-mash grindhouse staples -- in this case, blaxploitation, sexploitation, women-in-prison, violent action, etc. You cover a lot of ground that way, and 'Black Mama, White Mama' manages to put it all together so it's consistently entertaining. Any time you've got Sid Haig appearing in a Pam Grier movie, that's always a good thing, too. The conclusion has something bold to say about what one's freedom should ultimately be used for -- so, extra-added bonus.

This sleazy, cheap, action-adventure does have its moments. Grier and Markov do well in their roles but they don't seem to have any chemistry together. The story takes awhile to get it rolling. The second half is more successful than the first half. Haig steals the show, when he is on-screen as a sleazy drug dealer, who dresses himself as a cowboy. Who is also a tracker, who trying to find Grier and Markov in the movie. Perphas it is notable that Oscar-Winner Jonathan Demme co-wrote the story. A tribute to "The Defiant Ones" to some degree. Although Grier and Markov don't hate eachother as much. It is watchable, especially for fans of Grier's work and Haig's work.
