    Upon further review, the by play between Antonio Fargas (one of my favorite 70s character actors) and his two cronies is pretty funny. And I like the way his death scene turns from funny to gruesome. So let's upgrade this movie to a C plus.

    Ah, women's lib in the movies, where gal action heroes get to be just as vapid as their male counterparts! Basically, if you're a guy who liked "Shaft," you'll like this movie. If you're a woman who liked "Shaft," then you'll love this movie. I did not like either. I found both characters (and the actors who played them) dull and one dimensional. I will say that Cleo treats men better than Shaft treats women. (How hard is that?) Action scenes are cliche, as well. Car chase was generic, and how many times have you seen the airport shootout with the bad guy's body going round and round on the luggage carousel? About the only time the movie came alive for me, action wise, was Antonio Fargas' death scene. Basically, I expected more from that fine, low life director, Jack Starrett. Part of the problem may have been that Starrett was saddled with a screenplay rewritten by Danny Thomas writer, Sheldon Keller. Consequently, a lot of the dialog was either not very good black schtick ("Look who came outa the woodpile?" "Bye bye, big honkey" "Did you call me Boy or Roy?") or standard redneck drivel from the white characters. About the only character with any zing is head villain Shelley Winters, who is gloriously kinky and dikey, (and, of course, was criticized for it by white women's libbers, not a group known for checking their politics at the lobby door.) Give it a C for her performance.
