Synopsis
Football fans should enjoy this low-budget biker movie starring several of the 1970s' greatest gridiron stars. "Mean" Joe Greene, Carl Eller, Gene Washington, Willie Lanier, and Mercury Morris are among the familiar faces as a gang of Vietnam veterans fights white racists in a Southern town to avenge their dead friend. Rosalind Miles, Mikel Angel, and the Raiders' Ben Davidson (an avid biker in real life) co-star. It's not any better than most of director Matt Cimber's films, but the nostalgia factor compensates for its clumsier moments. Cimber, whose real name is Matteo Ottaviano, went on to direct Pia Zadora in Butterfly. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

The additional features on this disc - Fred Williamson's Mean Johnny Barrows and Michael L. Fink's Cleopatra Jones-esque Velvet Smooth - were both released in 1976. The cast and crew listed herein only relate to The Black Six.
