Despite a few entertaining moments and some strong performances, there's very little about this urban thriller that's worthy of mention.
Audience Reviews for J.D.'s Revenge
They want you to show them where the lines are. In the 70s Isaac seems like an ordinary aspiring young black man. He has settled down with his wife to be and appears on a very positive path until the spirit of a deceased 1940s gangster takes over his body and begins seeking revenge for those responsible for killing him and his sister. Can Isaac gain control of the situation or will the possession ruin his life forever? "Nobody talks to me like that, especially some bitch ho like you!" Arthur Marks, director of Bucktown, Friday Foster, The Monkey Hustle, Detroit 9000, Class of '74, A Woman for all Men, and Togetherness, delivers JD's Revenge. The storyline for this picture is unique but awkward in a lot of ways. The action was nothing special and the acting was pretty average. The cast includes Glynn Thurman, Louis Gossett Jr, Joan Pringle, David McKnight, Earl Billings, and Julian Christopher. "I fucked your woman, sucker!" I came across this movie on Netflix due to it being a blaxploitation so I added it to my queue. This was a bit disappointing as the plot did not work for me. This is a below average addition to the genre with little going for it. I recommend skipping this. "Those are thirty dollar super shoes." Grade: D
A fun little Blaxploitation title with a bit of a supernatural twist, as a mild mannered guy is possessed by the spirit of a long dead pimp who begins to seek revenge on those that killed him, as well as causing chaos in the life of the man that he's taken over. Good little flick, it's interesting to see the mannerisms change as out lead is taken over. Well worth tracking down.
