I’m trying to identify a flick a friend told me about. He said it’s an '80s or '70s movie starring a big black guy who wears a red vest (or jacket) and is against a white guy named “Leroy.” He said that what really stands out is the main character frequently called out “Leroy” (something like “leeee-roy”?). He said it is aking to a karate movie, though not necessarily karate proper, maybe it’s just a lot of fighting. I asked if it was a crime movie, you know, mobs & gangs & whatnot, and he said it wasn’t–more of a tournament motif than crime.
He’s obsessed with remembering, but cannot place a finger on it. And now I’m curious as well.
Can anybody help? If so, will you? Thanks!
