After a successful heist, Curtis Hooks (Jim Brown) is betrayed by his two
partners. With revenge on his mind, Curtis kills them both but not before stashing the cash from their heist in a same place. Soon after, the police arrive, sending Curtis to jail to serve several years for his crimes. While on the inside, Curtis is under constant pressure, with everyone and their mother after him due to the fact that the crime syndicate has placed a bounty on his head. This leads to Jim Brown kicking a whole lot of ass in highly enjoyable b-movie fashion. The Slams is pretty much what you would hope for and expect with Jim Brown in full badass super-fly mode not taking shit from anyone; even though he is pretty much alone with people from all sides after him, including the police, the black gang, and the white gang. Jonathan Kaplan's The Slams is best describes a slice of badass cinema with lots of fun 70s racial exploitation goodness that features lots a great, quotable dialogue.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
