Original Gangstas (1996)

Director: Larry Cohen
Starring: Fred Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier

Former gang members reunite to take revenge on some thugs.

It really is a testament to how times have changed juxtaposing the cesspit of 90s era thug life with some of blaxploitation's biggest stars doing their thing much as they did back in the 70s. The 70s were a rough time, but things really seem to have gone downhill by comparison. While it's definitely interesting seeing people like Fred Williamson, Jim Brown and Pam Grier back in action, it's not a great film by any means. You might find it entertaining enough, but it's a take it or leave it deal.
