Super Fly T.N.T. (1973)


He's on vacation overseas. But no way can fast, flashy, fierce Priest stay out of the action long. Ron O'Neal returns as Priest and Alex Haley provides the script for the sequel to Superfly. We catch up up Priest in Rome, where the one-time crime-lord, weary of the hustling in Harlem operation and eager to get his head clear, is ready for some permanent R'n'R. He has no interest when an African freedom fighter (Roscoe Lee Browne) asks for his help on a gun-running mission. But Priest ultimately discovers he cannot turn his back on the land of his ancestors. He joins the fight. And when he's in a fight, it means war.
