Synopsis by Robert Firsching
In this blaxploitation actioner from cult filmmaker Al Adamson, Timothy Brown plays a Las Vegas detective named "Kicks" Carter. He must foil a gang of criminals dealing arms to Central America and save some gambling addicts who are forced to pay off their debts as prostitutes in a hotel for women. Russ Tamblyn is featured as a vicious thug, Adamson's wife Regina Carrol sings in a nightclub, and there's a vile gang-rape scene. Gary Graver provided the cinematography, which often catches unpleasant real-life details such as toenail clippings on the floor of the hotel. Only genre completists are likely to find much to enjoy, but there are some wonderfully campy moments of unintentional hilarity among the sleaze. Brown had also appeared in Adamson's Dynamite Brothers, while co-star Tanya Boyd was in Greydon Clark's laughable Black Shampoo.
