Audience Reviews for Mean Johnny Barrows
I was kinda sad to find that this unseen Fred Willamson flick was more of a great trailer than a great movie, as there's not a helluva lot of action until the final reel, ad it's something of a slog to get to that action, if I'm being really honest here. Pass? Unless you're a completist for the Blaxploitation stuff or Williamson.
Mean Johnny Barrows is a fun slice of 70's blaxploitation films. It has a corny plot, plenty of violence, mobsters, hot women, and more. What's not to love about such a combination? If you enjoy the corny films of this era, this one is worth watching because it might be stupid, but it sure is a lot of fun to watch.
Not a bad film, had a point, but low budget filming thats for sure. Johnny is a vietnam vet who earns a dishoronable discharge and is sent back to the states where in 1970 not only is hard for a black man to get a job but a vet with a BCD, no way, so he joins the underworld in order to square things with a rival mob gang. Its Black Exploration at its height. And you only have to sit thur 90 minutes. I give it 3 1/2 stars.
