Dynamite Brothers, The (1974)

Chinese man Larry Chin (former 70’s Golden Harvest matinee kung-fu star Alan Tang) sneaks into America to locate his missing brother and ends up meeting Stud Brown (Timothy Brown), a young black man who decides to help him.

The two head to Los Angeles where they run into various drug dealers as well as a crooked cop (Aldo Ray).

The storyline makes very little sense and the movie is technically very poorly made, mixing elements of every other blaxploitation and martial arts film from this period. But there are enough fight scenes, car chases, and overall craziness to almost make up for that.

This (obviously) low budget film from Al Adamson (one of the first US directors to use a Hong Kong Stunt team in America) was released in some markets as East Meet Watts, Stud Brown and Killing of a Chinese Bookie.
