Storyline

A Congo rebel leader is captured and imprisoned with two white felons in this 81-minute feature containing religious symbolism and condemnation of colonial exploitation. Maurice Lalubi is thrown in jail with a soldier and an Italian thief. The trio endures torture at the hands of their captors, while a newly formed military regime decides the fate of the insurgent. The entire horror of the confrontation is seen through his eyes throughout Lalubi's interrogation and torture. His imminent demise could turn him into a martyr and spell trouble for the new government dictator in this sometimes violent film. Written by Clint Weiler

I guess Black Jesus wasn't for me since I'm still trying to stay alert having just watched it
5 February 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on YouTube. The title was enough to get me to watch but unfortunately, I found myself half-bored because of the slow pace of getting from one scene to another. As a possible result, half of me didn't know what was going on or why. I guess this film wasn't for me since I expected some quick action and an exciting music score and maybe some campy dialogue. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this movie wasn't very exciting to me. Woody Strode does have a presence and I did feel sorry for him when he was tortured but other than that, I just wasn't very excited. I really can't think of anything positive about this film. So on that note, beware of what to expect from Black Jesus.
