Other films have been made to parody Three The Hard Way (1974). Undercover Brother (2002) is an example of a film that uses the plot from Three The Hard Way (1974) as a parody. When “The Man” tries to derail a black candidate’s presidential campaign, Undercover Brother (Eddie Griffin) and his fellow secret agents come to the rescue by stopping the white-run “Man” before he destroys the black population of the United States through an ingested toxin. Mr. Feathers, played by Chris Kattan is “The Man’s” second in command and he is named after Monroe Feather (Jay Robinson) from Three The Hard Way (1974).
