Savage! (1973)

Director: Ciro H. Santiago

Starring: James Iglehart, Lada Edmund Jr., Carol Speed, Sally Jordan, Vic Diaz, Aura Aurea, Eddie Gutierrez
More info: IMDb

Tagline: Men call him Savage, women call him all the time.

Plot: A black American mercenary is wanted by the Resistance for aiding in the killing their leader only to become their legendary leader and leading them against his former employers.

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again? Noop.

#9 on Blaxploiteasin' (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

#12 on 42nd Street Forever Vol. 2: The Deuce (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

Too bad SAVAGE! isn't nearly as thrilling and fun as the trailer is. But then that's the case with most of these flicks. SAVAGE! isn't all that bad but it's like one of those low budget Roger Corman Philippino flicks from this era that make big promises they can't keep. Part of the problem might be watching an inferior print. It's got what you'd want in an exploitationer...



Say, that reminds me...Carol Speed needs to have my mega-follicled babies!

Do yourself a favor, buy the 42ND STREET FOREVER VOL 2: THE DEUCE trailer compilation and watch the trailer a few dozen times instead. Close your eyes and listen to that groovy voice lay down those near impossible to live up to taglines.
