This action-packed feature stars Richard Lawson as street fighter Leroy Fisk. Leroy works for the mob but wants out, dreaming of one day opening his own nightclub. A classic from the 1970s Blaxploitation genre, BLACK FIST follows Leroy’s attempts to seek revenge after a crooked cop teams up with his boss in an attempt to keep Leroy down.

Richard Lawson has done most of his work for TV, which is too bad, because he’s one hell of a bad ass action movie star. In “Black Fist”, Lawson is the diamond-in-the-rough that saves this movie from its low-budget sins. His performance is excellent and keeps our rapt attention as the story unfolds. Dabney Coleman and Philip Michael Thomas co-star. Thomas DiSanto
