Ron O’Neal’s blax­ploita­tion icon gets the re­boot treat­ment in this vi­o­lent up­date from Di­rec­tor X. Trevor Jack­son plays drug dealer Priest, trans­planted from Har­lem to At­lanta but still crav­ing one fi­nal score. Co-star­ring Straight Outta Comp­ton’s Ja­son Mitchell as part­ner Eddie, X wisely nods to the orig­i­nal with Cur­tis May­field’s song ‘Push­er­man’ in­cluded – but it’s largely a generic and bad taste ode to gang war­fare.
