"The consensus is that it is vastly inferior to Black Caesar, but to this viewer the difference is minor. Cohen clearly understood that BC needed more style, energy and violence, and on that level the sequel really delivers, despite the problems with the script that he admits was written on the fly. With a tighter plot, this could have been an exploitation gem. As it stands, it is an entertaining, above average 'blaxploitation' that's another showcase for Williamson's eternal cool."

"Coen has certainly borrowed ideas from the silent era, and probably from Welles too, but his use of light and shadow is purely decorative: it does not suggest deeper psychological states or create a heightened atmosphere. The performances are decent, but they lack insight, intensity and even chemistry (e.g.Washington and McDormand); and the absence of depth or nuance to the line readings is only magnified by the minimalist style. Coen is to blame: his understanding is superficial. Disappointing."
