"Some have called this movie as a bit of a masterpiece. Whoever said that is deluded as this is an awful movie. It's basically the title character Sweetback on the run from some cops after saving a Black Panther member and having lots of sex with various women. The photography in this movie is terrible. A number of scenes are shot at night without lighting, basically making the action invisible. There is very little dialogue and Sweetback almost never speaks. When people are talking, they are bad"

"Katsottu 5.5.2012., dvd Blaxploitaatiogenren synnyttäjä tai ei, oli tämä silti pettymys. Ei loppupeleissä niinkään huono, enemmänkin vaisu. Tyyli on hyvin omanlaisensa ja musiikki on rautaisaa, mutta huomaa että tämä on todella amatööriveto kaikin muin tavoin. Tarina ei jaksa sytyttää, näytteleminen on aika puista ja lopulta sen sanoma ei tartu kovinkaan vahvasti. Silti, kyllä tämän voi ehkä joskus myöhemmin katsastaa, mutta ei tämä mainettaan parempi elokuva missään ni"

Blaxploitation films I've seen (28 movies items)

"Alussa tummaihoinen pikkupoika nussii huomattavasti vanhempaa naista, muuttuu sitten Sweet Sweetbackiksi ja äkkiä kuvataan jotain lihavaa neekeriä skeidalla vauvanmyssy päässään ja pyyhkimässä persettään yhden ainoan kerran, vieläpä pinkillä toalettipaprulla. Ei siitä sen enempää. Ääniraita on kuralla, TomHenrya lainatakseni "kuva on aivan liian tummaa, jotta siitä saisi selvää" ja rasistista sontaa lukuunottamatta mitään sisältöä ei tunnu irtoavan. Funkahtavalla sound"

"Katsottu: 5.5.2012 ”Elokuva voisi olla hyvä, mutta tästä ei saa mitään selvää, koska kuva on niin tumma.” Tässä lainaus TomHenryn suusta. Ei siinä mitään, koska tämä ei ollut elokuva. Tämä oli suuri paskakikare, johon oli ripoteltu aivan törkeästi rasismia. Suoraan sanottuna en muista tästä mitään muuta kuin Tompan kommentin. Se kuvastaa tätä parhaiten."

" Violent, politically radical and sexually transgressive, Melvin Van Peebles' indie movie reflected the simmering rage of disillusioned African-Americans."

"Influential, How? Black cinema finds a voice. Dedicated to “all the Brothers and Sisters who have had enough of The Man”, Sweet Sweetback's... is the first 'blaxploitation' flick. It's a full-frontal attack on honky hegemony as hero Sweetback fights and fucks his way through corrupt white cops and lurid whorehouses. Black Panther Huey P Newton praised it as “the first truly revolutionary black film.” Money Shot: Handcuffed Sweetback beating up a couple of racist rozzers. "
