Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A dated phenomenon of the late-'60s counterculture, Billy Jack is a crude 1971 yarn about a half-Indian Vietnam veteran who uses his martial arts skills to protect wild mustangs and a runaway teenager from backwards Arizona citizens. The townsfolk are racist, and don't like a progressive school in town catering to non-whites, so Billy Jack fights them and blows them away. Championing a violent approach to pro-Establishment attitudes, the movie was a runaway cult hit, along with its theme song, "One Tin Soldier." Virtually a one-man show, it was written and directed by its star, Tom Laughlin, who created the Billy Jack character in a 1966 motorcycle movie, The Born Losers. Billy Jack also stars Laughlin's wife, Delores Taylor. In 1974, Laughlin followed up with The Trial of Billy Jack, which together with the original had huge box-office receipts. Two more attempts at Billy Jack films, in 1977 and 1986, flopped.

    Billy Jack is the new Orestes

    This movie is a hoot. The production values are not what we are used to... and the pace of the movie is not as frenetic as we are accumstomed to either... but the SAPPY, LIBERAL sentimentalism redeems every flaw. The movie draws in people who love violence-- you get to see brawls and rape and other forms of humiliation--but the film wastes little time in preaching the values of tolerance and non-violence. My favorite part is when Billy Jack murders a law enforcement officer at the end and is treated like a hero. Apparently it is not self-contradictory to liberal ideals of compassion and tolerance to murder people who really deserve it. Which is why I love this movie. We are all a bundle of contradictions and Billy Jack mirrors the non sequiter of our lives back to us... We are all tragic figures.

    Hippies with a Kick.

    If you want a good look at the hippy philosophy here it is. Plus some classic martial arts scenes. "I'm Going to put this foot on that side of your face and there is nothing you can do about it". This is the indi film that rocked the world.
