Super Soul Brother was originally going to be the "Black Superman". However, it ended up an action comedy. Wildman Steve plays a bum who agrees to allow an experimental drug to be administered to him. What he doesn't realize is that the doctor who's doing the experiment is a criminal, trying to create an unstoppable thief that's immune to bullets. Steve gains all the powers that Superman has, and after getting his revenge against all those who harassed him on the street, discovers the truth about the doctor's plans for him. Written by

Steve (Steve Gallon) is an embarrassing drunk who lives on the streets and tries to find a drink wherever he can. One day he's taken to a doctor's office where a couple men want to clean him up and force him into taking a special serum created by a doctor. This serum will give Steve the strength of a superhero and the bad guys plan to use this to their advantage by having him steal some jewels for them.
THE SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR NI**ER came towards the end of the blaxploitation period when there's no question that the genre was on its dying legs. The majority of the good films from this genre had already been made and the majority of what was coming out where just cheap pieces of trash that were meant to be shown at 4am at drive-ins across the country. This film here would certainly fit into that category because it's quite awful from start to finish but thankfully it's so bad that you can get some mild entertainment from it.
Everything from the direction to the performances to the story are pretty bad all around. I mean, the story itself is quite stupid and there's certainly nothing funny to be found in the screenplay. Even worse is the fact that the production values are that of a Jerry Warren picture and there's just nothing here. The film is so awful that you can actually have a few good laughs at it and the badness is the only thing that really keeps the film somewhat bearable.
