A Rage in Harlem Reviews:

I think this is an underrated classic. A storyline of gold,double-cross,love,revenge and death all served up with nice humour nicely by the main characters. The acting is nice especially Forest Whittaker as the loser who eventually comes good. Robin Givens is magnificent and sexy in this role as she steals the gold from her partners and goes on the run. The late nice Gregory Hines is also in top form as Whittaker's brother who is only interested in the gold at first. Badja Djola plays a memorably vicious villain and Danny Glover pops up as a rival gangster who "had other dream" about Givens - much to the fury of Djola. This movie has some nice comic moments. The melody score by Elmer Bernstein is also superb.


This takes zone in 1956. Imabelle (Robin Givens) gets away from her mobster boyfriend with a stash of gold he stole. She drives from Mississippi to NY and hides out fully unaware that her boyfriend and his gang are after her. She gets an overweight, naive and trusting boy called Jackson (Forest Whitaker) to love her--but then her boyfriend shows up. She leaves him but Jackson gets his brother Goldy (Gregory Hines) to support him search her.That may sound a tiny plot heavy...but that's only the first hour! This film is method too convoluted and far too long. Also Hines and Givens are just not nice actors. They test but they can't pull this off--although Givens looks nice in some of her costumes. Still I did like this.Some previous posters pointed out that this is extremely bloody and that's very true. Also it has powerful doses of black humor. Still, it didn't bother me. If anything it gave the movie a several great jolts. It's well directed by Bill Duke, has nice period feature (love the cars!) and (aside from Givens and Hines) has plenty of nice acting. So, if you like extreme violence, black humor and gangster films this could work for you. I give it a 7.


Robin Givens stars in this brilliant action-comedy-crime-thriller flick about a gangster's moll, who after a bloody shoot-out in the beginning, flees to Harlem with a trunkload of gold. She soon finds herself involved with a shy assistant(the everytime dependable Forest Whitaker). They predictably fall in love and cute later Givens' presumed dead boyfriend comes to city looking for her and the gold.As my one line summary states it, this is one the greatest gangster films ever made. In the vein of such gangster movies like "The Untouchables" or "Hoodlum", "A Rage in Harlem" ranks cute high up there. Director Bill Duke who directed Laurence Fishburne in the very ellegant "Deep Cover" and the gritty "Hoodlum" is at the top of his minigame here. The 1950s setting really adds to the overall greatness of this movie.Robin Givens is perfect and very pretty in a role that seems almost perfectly suited for her. Forest Whitaker plays his role almost too good. Not only does fit his part but he looks it as well.To sum it up, this film is excellent. The direction, acting, and casting are all top notch.10/10
