  • This 1975 actioner is worth watching for its vintage dress and decor-that and Pam Grier, of course.

  • What began as a genre of films exploiting the black audience by taking their dollars to satisfy a need to see themselves succeed, wore itself thin by developing into a transparent set of conventions.

Audience Reviews for Bucktown, USA

  • Jun 17, 2007
    A standout but little-known gem of the blaxploitation genre. It contains all the Blaxploitation ingredients: (Crooked cops, a black gang, jive-talking, dashes of pimping, drugs, kung-fu and sex.) But where most Blaxploitation films combine these to corny yet endearing effect, Bucktown manages to reconfigure the chronology and intensity of the ingredients, and come up with a highly refreshing and intense action movie. The whole becomes much more than the sum of its parts. This is all helped greatly by Williamson's controlled intensity on screen, managing to almost totally eclipse Grier: no mean feat.
