Movie Info

A former Green Beret who set out to settle a score with the mob finds they don't give up easy in this action-packed blaxploitation drama. After killing the mobster who killed his parents in Mexico, Slaughter plans to return to a quiet life in Los Angeles, but police detective Reynolds (Brock Peters) warns him that his life is in danger -- it seems crime boss Duncan (Ed McMahon), an associate of the man Slaughter killed, isn't about to allow his killing to pass without retaliation. After an ambitious assassination attempt involving a World War I biplane fails dramatically, Duncan recruits a vicious new hit man, Kirk (Don Stroud), and one of Kirk's first assignments is to take care of Slaughter once and for all. Duncan also has ties to the L.A.P.D., and rather than put Slaughter in protective custody at Reynolds' suggestion, the war hero is put back on the street. However, as Slaughter tracks down the men who murdered his family and threatened the life of his girlfriend Marcia (Gloria Hendry), it looks as if the crooks may need protection from Slaughter more than he needs to be protected from them. A sequel of the successful Jim Brown vehicle Slaughter, Slaughter's Big Rip-Off included an original score by James Brown and his long-time musical partner Fred Wesley.more

Audience Reviews for Slaughter's Big Rip-Off


Slaughter's back and I was able to finish out the two-fer set within the same week or so of seeing the original film! Go, me.

Another watchable Blaxploitation film that deserves to be dusted off and given another day in court, give this one a rental.


So it wasn't a real viewing, but I've seen most of the first and this one was playing at the bar we were at (in the mission, the one next to the Roxie that always plays blaxploitation movies). It has everything you need in a blaxploitation movie, random white guy, naked women that shouldn't be naked, crazy outfits in bright colors and odd patterns, and cheesy action.

I'm guessing the dialogue wasn't so great, but I personally think blaxploitation movies need need to not take itself too seriously or is creative about its situations (see Pam Grier movies). This seems to not have either. And since I don't remember the first one much (too many toxins in my blood when watching it), it couldn't have been too great.
