    The Black Six

    The Black Six (1974)

    Awkward, overt rip-off of Melvin Van Peebles's SWEET SWEETBACK, right up to the warning title card that flashes before the closing credit. Amusing to see so many 1970s African American NFL stars in the title roles, and even funnier for the advertisement of their current team ("Starring Joe Greene of the Pittsburgh Steelers") in the opening montage. Passable if, like me, you're into cult cinema of the period.
