Critic Reviews for Black Samson
Audience Reviews for Black Samson
This one is something I'd wanted to see for quite some time, especially after seeing the trailer on one of those 42nd Street Forever collections, so I was pleased to finally cross this Blaxploitation flick off the To-Watch Pile. Our lead is a mountain of a man, a nightclub owner who keeps a lion around as a pet and is willing to stand up to drug dealers when they try to muscle in on a black neighborhood. It all culminates in a great sequence of some evil people trapped in a city block and left to the locals for some street justice. Well worth a look.

A quintessential blaxploitation feature. Nothing original, but very well done. Instantly quotable and pretty much by the numbers - the white man comes in to put down the black man...you can't get more quintessential than that. Oh, and William Smith is amazing in this! :)
