Storyline

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.

Super Sucks & not in a good way.
28 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't bother seeking out Super Soul Brother, it Super Sucks! On the back of the box it says "In the spirit of The Devil's Son in Law...", which means it's supposed to be like "Petey Wheatstraw: the Devil's Son in Law" - well, it's not. PW was hilarious and starred Rudy Ray Moore as the title character. Actually Wildman Steve who stars in SSB is in PW for one scene as a nightclub owner talking about how patrons "whipe their sh*tty ass". The problem is, Wildman Steve isn't funny and lacks much personality. He's no Rudy Ray and as a matter of fact, you can hear him using Rudy Ray's lines in Super Soul Brother to no effect. Wildman Steve shouldn't take all the blame for this mess. It's filmed & edited badly and the acting is awful, which I would've accepted if there was some funny dialogue. I have to say, if Rudy Ray was in the lead, the film might've been saved. Bottom Line: Super Soul Brother just isn't that good or exciting. Even if you're a fan of the Dolemite & Petey Wheatstraw films. It doesn't help that Wildman Steve doesn't have much presence or funny jokes.

One question: If he's supposed to be the strongest man in the world why does he lift safes and huge rocks with moderate difficulty? Shouldn't he be able to sling those things around. The one part I found funny.
