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)
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.
