Fighting Mad (1978)

A strange amalgamation of blaxploitation, Italian mafia and Japanese Samurai films. The best scenes in this predictable but amiable B movie are when sensitive Mr. T type Leon Isaac chops up coconuts on a desert island with two stranded Japanese World War II vets who still believe the war is going on. Isaac fills them in on the past three decades of history in exchange for some sword fighting lessons. He uses his new skills to exact revenge on his double crossing friends who now own most of downtown Los Angeles. When the US army reach the desert island, Isaac is taken home but his Japanese counterparts continue to fight back. “The war is over,” he reminds them. “Not for me,” they reply.
