Gary Arnold Washington Post A talky, static, derivative picture that seems to run on forever. Frank Capra Jr., the producer of Billy Jack Goes to Washington, may be considered out of the running for this year's Honor Thy Father Award. Dec 21, 2015 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Dreadful Billy Jack sequel to sequel, and enough already. Rated: 1/5 Mar 23, 2008 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Jan 9, 2006 Full Review Michael Szymanski Zap2it.com Rated: 0/5 Oct 15, 2005 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures This Billy Jack film at least provides a nice shift back to the title character as a focus.

Audience Member The extreme political views of the writer and star get in the way of what could be an interesting premise. The first movie "Born Losers" -- oddly -- ends up being the least worst of the series. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member A very different kind of Billy Jack movie, it's basically a remake of Mr Smith Goes To Washington. As a remake, not the hottest. As a later Billy Jack movie, it's more focused than most entries and has a satisfying conclusion. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Tom Laughlin hires Frank Capra's son direct his version of Mr Smith Goes To Washington. Fourth and most tolerable of the series, it probably would have been a nit if it got wide release. It's derivative, but at least it's focused. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Billy Jack fights the big bad nuclear plants this time around, and his audience breathes a sigh a relief that this is Laughlin's final sequel. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I think this was last in the series. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Billy Jack tackles the US Senate this time, fighting against gov't corruption in his home state. Riveting remake & almost on par with Jimmy Stewart's MR SMITH (which is a true gem). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
