Tom Laughlin's Bloated Masterpiece

What's not to like about Billy Jack? Here's a man who speaks mysticism while breaks arms and legs. He's the good guy with the black hat that tries to right wrongs with his hands and feet when words aren't enough. After the success of Billy Jack, the Husband and Wife team of Laughlin and Dolores follow up their mega hit with this epic of padded proportions. Billy Jack, after serving his prison sentence returns to the Freedom School only to be harassed by a new villain. Posner the developer. Posner, the rancher has left for good only to be replaced by his eviler and shadier brother (if that was humanly possible).

Billy Jack brings along his mentor Master Han Soo Bong for the ride. In this film, the villains are more cartoonish and the action is wilder than the last one. But, Tom Laughlin uses countless reels of footage showcasing the Freedom School students. I want what everyone else wants. More Billy Jack beating the stuffing out of his redneck foes and less young kids performing amateur hour shtick. If I were Tom Laughlin I would cut about 50 minutes out of this movie. I love Trial of Billy Jack but it would be so much better if it was tightly edited and had more fights. I don't mind the politicalness of the movie but less students and more Billy Jack!

That Jason is a real cad, punching that girl in the stomach and smashing that guitar. Oooh, big man! he's a hoot to watch.

Viva Billy Jack, Viva!!!
