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.

Great movie to make fun of with your buddies
7 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The name says it all. You know going into it that this is going to be the biggest piece of blaxploitation garbage you've ever seen, and it is. But I disagree with the other poster that said it is not bad in a good way. Its badness is so bad that it redeems itself with pure laughter.

There are so many noticeable mistakes and continuity errors that it just makes you laugh. Like when Super Soul Brother is utilized by the bad guys to lift a 3 ton safe - when he puts it in the car trunk the car doesn't move - they made no attempt to hide the fact that the safe was made out of cardboard. In a later seen, a midget in a suit appears out of nowhere, with no explanation of why he is there, and he is immediately killed (that appears to be the climax of the movie, but who would know??) There are many memorable lines as well. Who can forgot, "Drawers?? N----s don't wear drawers!" Or the classic song at the end, "6001, It's a N-----" I liked this movie a lot, there is tons of fun to be had here with a case of beers and a couple wise guys in the room.
