The Mack Review


Scraping the bottom of blaxploitation is this cult classic, The Mack, featuing Max Julien as an ex-con straight outta the slammer and looking to re-take his place at the top of the Oakland pimp scene. Good God, for two hours this dribbles on, filled with big hats, elaborate canes, and tons and tons of hos. While Richard Pryor's appearance threatens to elevate The Mack above pure crap, the tired and incredibly offensive story merits virtually no attention.
