Veni, Vidi, Vici … Tommy!
This review’s title obviously refers to a famous Julius Caesar quote, and personally I think the greatest thing about “Black Caesar” is the subtle title reference towards the great historical leader. I deliberately state “subtle” reference, because the name itself isn’t mentioned anywhere throughout the entire film, but the similarities between protagonist Tommy Gibbs and the Roman emperor are clever and relevant. Tommy also builds his own way to the top; in this case the conquering of a mafia empire that quickly becomes as over sized, cluttered and unmanageable as the Roman Empire. His methods are also merciless and strategic, but he also gradually transforms into a dictator feared by his loved ones as well as the target of conspiracies and assassination attempts. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s quite an ambitious and intelligent concept for a supposedly simple and low-budgeted piece of 70’s exploitation trash! That being said, I have to admit that I nevertheless expected even more from this blaxploitation classic. I’m certainly not an expert in this domain, but I’ve seen the most important ones (“Across 110th Street”, “Ganja & Hess”), the most outrageously entertaining ones (“Foxy Brown”, “Truck Turner”) and the passable ones (“JD’s Revenge”, “Blackenstein”). “Black Caesar” somewhat balances between the first two categories, as the script isn’t solid enough to be important and not cool enough to be outrageously entertaining. Basically it’s just Fred Williamson looking mean and shooting white mobsters in the chest so that he can take their place in the New York gangster hierarchy. During this process he abuses and scares off the people he initially wanted to protect, like his mother and childhood friend. The film features too many dull parts and repetitive sequences. Every conflict is solved with a bullet and end with a close up of a dead body covered in thick and bright red blood syrup. The most memorable sequences include the intro, with a teenage Tommy enrolling the criminal life, a virulent taxi/on foot chase in busy NY streets and a sadist final confrontation between Tommy and his nemesis. Other terrific elements for exploitation fanatics to enjoy are the swinging soundtrack (with James Brown’s unique voice) and authentically raw and gritty set pieces. Williamson is excellent, of course, but Art Lund gives an even more impressive performance as the disgustingly corrupt cop McKinney. Larry Cohen’s direction is uneven, but it was one of the first ventures of this multi-talented and versatile cult genius. There’s a sequel entitled “Hell Up in Harlem”.
