That Man Bolt (1973)

Jefferson Bolt (Fred Williamson) has to get a special brief case from Hong Kong to Mexico, and some how he ends up at a martial arts tournament. When you think Jefferson Bolt think: black James Bond. From a producing stand point a black James Bond seems like a smart financial move; tapping into untouched markets . Sadly, the convoluted plot of That Man Bolt calls attention to the fact that this film is a meaningless story built upon exotic locals and brief spurts of action (sesual and violent), but that most James Bond films work in the same fashion. Still, I’d rather watch Willamson go through the motions than Connery or Moore.
