User Reviews: Uneven but entertaining comedy which puts an effective comic spin on popular blaxploitation films. Griffin—a stylish, super cool secret agent who always gets his man—is recruited by an ambitious black brotherhood to investigate the ambiguous actions of a prominent black general who’s given up his love of politics for fried chicken. In addition, Griffin also matches wits with an evil, megalomaniacal white man. An undeniably goofy setup is made worthwhile by a lot of hip, amusing dialogue and clever, innovative sight gags. Suffers from occasional lapses—as most films of this genre do—but the cast is clearly having fun and make it worth the viewing experience. **½
