Disco Godfather is a 1979 film that follows a retired cop turned disco dancer named Tucker Williams, played by Rudy Ray Moore. Tucker discovers that his nephew, Bucky (played by Jimmy Lynch), has become addicted to a new and deadly drug called angel dust. Determined to save his nephew and put an end to the drug trade, Tucker takes it upon himself to become the Disco Godfather, spreading his anti-drug message through his performances at the nightclub where he works.

As Tucker begins his quest to take down the drug ring, he engages in a series of high-octane exploits, battling drug dealers and stopping at nothing to save the people he loves. Along the way, he is helped by a beautiful woman named Noel (played by Carol Speed), who becomes Tucker's love interest and partner in his fight against drugs.

The film, directed by J. Robert Wagoner and written by Cliff Roquemore, is a wild and campy ride that is driven by the charisma and energy of Rudy Ray Moore. Moore, who made a name for himself in blaxploitation films of the 1970s, brings his trademark humor and swagger to the role of Tucker. He is backed up by an enthusiastic cast, including Lynch as the hapless Bucky and Speed as the tough and beautiful Noel.

One of the film's standout features is its phenomenal soundtrack, which features some of the hottest disco hits of the era. The film's music is an essential part of the story, and every scene is accompanied by a funky, upbeat track that will have audiences tapping their feet and nodding their heads.

The film's pacing is relentless, with action and drama packed into every scene. The Disco Godfather's fight against drugs and crime takes him from the streets and bars to the warehouses and secret hideouts of the drug lords. Along the way, he engages in car chases, fist-fights, and shootouts, all while delivering his anti-drug message to anyone who will listen.

Despite its serious anti-drug message, Disco Godfather is a film that doesn't take itself too seriously. The film embraces its campy, over-the-top nature and is all the better for it. Moore's over-the-top performance, combined with the film's funky soundtrack and outrageous plot, make Disco Godfather a film that is impossible not to enjoy.

In conclusion, Disco Godfather is a wild and entertaining film that fans of blaxploitation and disco will love. Rudy Ray Moore's charismatic performance, the film's infectious soundtrack, and its campy plot create an unforgettable viewing experience. Disco Godfather is a film that is both a time capsule of the disco era and a timeless cult classic.

Disco Godfather is a 1979 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2.
