Movie Info

Billy Dee Williams stars as Nick Allen in Hit! When he returns from an undercover assignment for the government, he discovers that his beloved daughter has died from a heroin overdose. He traces the drugs to a huge drug ring operating out of Marseilles, France. After discovering, to his disgust, that the U.S. government is not prepared to do anything about these lowlifes, he rounds up his own private squad of anti-drug guerillas, including Mike Willmer (Richard Pryor). Only because of its superior production values, does this film narrowly escape being a bona-fide member of the blaxploitation genre.
