It starts off fairly lightweight but the scenes just seem to add up into an incredible action flick with loads of vintage scenes of Los Angeles in the 70s fueled by incredible direction and Isaac Hayes as Truck Turner. It mostly gets around to featuring a case of a pimp who skipped out on his bail…
