Ethan M (gb) wrote: ...and I KNEW it was going there, too. The concept was interesting, the characters were believable, and actors were soild. However, the flow was slow, the message was muddy and took too long to come across, and I still do not understanding the actions of Mandingo at the end. Why? Why?! Anyways, this is a movie you find at Netflix Instant Downloads when you have absolutely no idea what else you could watch.

Peter P (gb) wrote: I liked it, action was solid, acting fine, and it had a good pace. And the ending was kinda original. Drop the nudity and language and it would have been better, but overall a good movie.

Michael M (fr) wrote: I like it a lot. Funny and face paced. Rodriguez second film after El Mariachi. Filmed in 13 days for Showtime cable. "Dude", the town rebel, dreams of rock 'n roll while dodging the local law enforcement. Great soundtrack full of Rockabilly hits.

Bill B (fr) wrote: My first experience (that I'm aware of) with a Fred Olen Ray film, and what a doozy it was. The title is one of those things that has always called to me for the sheer silliness of it all, and I have to say that it pays off well, looking to be shot on cheap porn sets and filled with hot women and ridiculous plot.Well worth a look for fans of cheese.Rental, at the very least.

Nicholas K (au) wrote: This movie took me by surprise. I've seen quite a bit of Blaxploitation films, and seeing the trailer for Trouble Man, this didn't look all that different. Yet as the movie went along it kept its bad-ass quality while providing me some laughs, some pure 70's filmmaking errors, and some high quality 70's filmmaking gold.

Nicholas D (kr) wrote: Very intense and creepy- I found the film well done in every department, even if the film is a bit cliche. I found myself at the edge of my seat the entire film.
