3.0 out of 5 stars He's Bad, he's Black--He's the Boss! Nov. 16 2009
By Paul A. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great flick! It's hard to get a true understanding of the Black exploitation film era without watching one of it's greatest stars Fred "The Hammer" Williamson. Although you might be shocked by it's lack of political correctness, its message rings true. We must look past the color of our skins, and peer into the integrity and character of who we are!

4.0 out of 5 stars He's so bad, they call him "Boss"... Dec 23 2009
By Tobin White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Surprisingly good movie. I originally heard about this from watching the trailer on Youtube, and when I learned it was actually a real movie I had to check it out.

Although the real title is "Boss N****r", this is not a racist movie. It's a movie made in the 70's when Blaxpoitation films were in their prime, but this is one of the better ones. So far as I can tell, there's no underlying sinister political message--it's just meant to be a fun movie.

And I think it accomplishes that goal well. There's parts that are very funny, and the acting is pretty decent. You also get to see preveiws for other movies made in that time, just as if you were watching it in a theater in the 70's. It's a fun movie to show to friends as chances are they've never seen it before (I don't think it's available in stores).

Also, on the front cover, you see "The Boss" (played by Fred "The Hammer" Williamson) weilding a cut-down lever action rifle (I'm guessing a Winchester 1873), which he uses in the movie to hip-fire at bad guys. It's the only gun he uses, but I guess it works for him.

So, should you buy it? I'd say yes, unless you get super-offended by racial epithets (the word "N****r" is said like 100 times in the movie). There's also a long interveiw with Fred Williamson on there, which is fairly interesting. GET IT TODAY!!1! (or not, I don't really care, lol)

4.0 out of 5 stars Elderly, but holds up well! Oct. 13 2010
By G. Sobek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An obvious genre piece (If you don't know which genre I'm talking about, then maybe you shouldn't be looking at this one) from the times, the movie holds up well today as a very kickass western in it's own right! All the jokes land and all the action is well played! Fred Williamson ROCKS it hard in this one, with guns blazing and fists knocking fools out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Despite the original title, it's really not a bad movie.. July 31 2013
By E. Bass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was made during a time where Black was the new.... uhm Black. It's not like the Boss was some sort of pimp or druggie. The protagonist was a hero trying to keep a town safe, despite the blatant racism of most of the townsfolk. There's tons of comedy in it, depending on how you take race/culture issues. You have to take this movie as entertainment, with numerous dashes of the n-word.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tough Western Action from Williamson Feb. 20 2012
By Hype Currie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In the Old West, Two African-American bounty hunters, "Boss" and Amos (Fred Williamson and D'Urville Martin), come upon a Western frontier town while giving chase to the fugitive criminal Jed Clayton (played by William Smith). When the pair discover that the city has no marshall, "Boss" decides to take on that role for himself, much to the consternation of many of the white townsfolk, including the mayor (played by R.G. Armstrong).

The film is full of action and some abbreviated romance involving a local woman infatuated with Boss. The racial conflicts are handled head on, frequently with comedic subtext. The climax of the film is very intense, and should satisfy action fans.

Williamson inhabits the role of the stoic, tough hero, quick witted and never totally outsmarted.

bonus features include a new interview with Williamson and the original trailers for the film.
