One part homage to Sheba Baby, one part boyz-and-girlz-in-the-‘hood movie, Original Gangstas places Fred Williamson at the helm of a reunited mod-squad that includes Jim Brown, Pam Grier, Richard Roundtree and Ron O’Neal. Like Sheba, Baby, John Bookman returns home after a gang war shooting wounds his father. The attack prompts John, a pro football coach and ex-gang member, to find the shooter and clean up his old neighborhood.
