Now this is a badass film!

The story ain't the most original, but then again, very few films really are all that original. This is a fun and groovy story about a cxool dude known only as Mr. T who is a detective who can kick ass, get shit done, and still have time to please the ladies. This is a high class blaxploitation film that deserves a lot more attention and recognition. It is, like the best of them, a film that really works as a regular movie and not just a genre picture. It saddens me that more films couldn't have aspired to the level of greatness achieved here.

Robert Hooks is awesome as T. The rest of the cast is also good. There's some great lines, good thrilling action, a tight story and script, a bit of substance, and, probably best of all, an awesome soundtrack by Marvin Gaye. This is a great looking film that is really entertaining, a lot of fun, and one that is definitely worth looking up.

Robert Hooks stars as one sharp dressing, pool hustling, coke drinking, lady pleasing, bad-ass private eye in this cool and groovy seventies blaxploitation classic.

As the film title suggests, trouble is very much afoot here after our man becomes embroiled in a potential gang war between rival factions, after one side hires him to find out who has been ripping off their low rent gambling dens. Matters become even more complex when our hero subsequently ends up being framed for a murder. None too pleased with being made the scapegoat however, our man subsequently sets out to get revenge which he does.....in violent style!

Chock full of snazzy dialogue, cool music, and some fine action sequences, this is great stuff from beginning to blood soaked end. Hooks is especially cool in his role which makes it somewhat of a shame that there were never any sequels produced as for instance other similarly strong black protagonists of the time such as Shaft and Slaughter enjoyed. Oh well, as it stands, our hero in this is equally as memorable. Be sure to check this out.

With Julius Harris on board, a Marvin Gaye soundtrack , and John Walton running illegal dice games, this should have been a 99 minute treat. Sadly these delights were counteracted by a leaden script and the completely charisma-free Mr T.
Buy the album instead.

A private detective caught in the middle of gang related violence and framed for murder? Trouble was never this well dressed.

A fun little film, doesn't really do anything new in the genre but is very well put together.

Worth a rental.

Notable mainly for Marvin Gaye's wonderful music.
