Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

Blaxploitation films have been satirised, notably in the sub-Airplane! spoof I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. But Black Dynamite is the real deal, a fast comedy that knows and loves its subject. Anchored by Michael Jai White’s superb display as the mean mofo cop brought out of retirement after his brother’s murder, this sharp skewering of ’70s afro-action comes with an attention to detail not yet seen, with library footage, soul ballads that comment on the unfolding story, and wooden actors who read out their direction along with their lines (“Sarcastically, I’m in charge”).

After a career on the sidelines, Michael Jai White ascends to lead this superlative send-up of the blaxploitation genre.

As the titular ex-CIA man, White reveals comic talents to match his martial artistry, delivering one-liners and roundhouse kicks with the same killer precision.

There are outrageous gags, reckless bad taste and affectionate attention to detail in this funny blaxploitation spoof-homage from writer, actor and martial arts hombre Michael Jai White. He stars as “Black Dynamite”, an Afro-and-moustache-sporting warrior of the 1970s: former Vietnam vet, undercover CIA operative and righteous badass who is convulsed with rage when the Man murders his brother, and starts pushing heroin at the local orphanage.

Movie Review from

Enjoyable as it is, in its affectionate way, there’s a feeling of superfluousness about this latest spoof of the ’70s-era Blaxploitation flick, directed by Scott Sanders from a story idea by its muscular star, Michael Jai White. White, with regulation Afro and half-moon ’tache, makes for a solid, relatively camp-free, avenger. He plays a flashback-prone, ex-CIA baadasssss, who, out to avenge his murdered brother, clean up the streets and free orphanages from crack, finds that taking on the dastardly, penis-shrinking malevolence of The Man takes him – believe it, brother! – to the very centre of the white establishment.

Movie Review from

Scott Sanders’s witty, near-scholarly blaxploitation send-up has Michael Jai White as the baddest cat in town, with nunchucks in one hand and his Magnum .44 in the other. The look is grubbily authentic, the script full of joyful absurdities — it’s the rare movie that’s completely in quotation marks but keeps up a head of steam.

    If you’re in the UK I’m telling you, go out of your way to make sure you and your friends and family (not kids) see this moving, it’s freaking hilarious!! It’d be funnier if Blaxploitation movies were better known there to get a good idea of what it’s spoofing, but all the same you have to see this movie, it’s the only movie in August worth more than the admission.
