Rudy Ray Moore is the Tucker Williams, the Disco Godfather – the owner of the very popular Blueberry Hill disco. He dances a mean game, and spins an even meaner game from the DJ booth. When his nephew Bucky gets mixed up in some bad business, Tucker takes it upon himself to rid the streets of that bad stuff!
What do you get when you mix a blaxploitation kung-fu movie and an Asian horror movie? You get Gang Wars, a weird combination of bad fight choreography, drug dealers and a monster movie all rolled up in to one.
During a night as ordinary as any other, a spaceship from another world (are there any other kind?) crashes to earth, and a hostile alien life form that resembles a reptillian gorilla of some kind escapes shortly before his craft explodes. A few hunters are eye witnesses to the crash and they go looking for the strange craft but are reduced to ash, thanks to the business end of the alien’s gun. What follows is a story of terror as the alien runs amok through a small rural town.
In 1974, Jim Kelly starred in the classic blaxploitation martial arts flick Black Belt Jones. Four years later, he returned to star in The Tattoo Connection (aka Black Belt Jones 2), which even though it goes by the Black Belt Jones moniker, it has absolutely nothing to do with the first film. In fact, in this one Kelly plays a character named Lucas, and he’s a former CIA agent who’s been hired by an insurance company to recover the North Pole Star Diamond, which was stolen upon it’s arrival in Hong Kong.
