Storyline

General Ahmed has started an inner-city People's Army to try and relieve the misery of the citizens of Watts. When the locals are put under increasing pressure by Mafia thugs, Ahmed's second-in-command Colonel Kojah asks for permission to start a protection squad to take more direct action. Ahmed fears this protection squad will just turn into a vigilante mob, and his prediction soon proves correct. Will Ahmed be able to wrest control back from the power-mad Kojah, or will he be the mob's next victim? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One of the most technically inept Blaxploitation films I've seen, but still pretty entertaining
16 April 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Despite what many people seem to remember, blaxploitation cinema started out with some quality films. "Shaft" and "Superfly" are both interesting and well-made films (if obviously dated). Even the more lower budgeted films of the era, such as "Black Caesar" or "Coffy", feature some good writing and acting. Eventually the genre began to hit the bottom of the barrel, as the outputs became increasingly formulaic and cheap. Just watching films such as "Dolemite", "Abar", and "The Black Gestapo" proves this.

"The Black Gestapo" is among the most technically inept of the subgenre I've seen. Fortunately, its absolutely gonzo concept makes it worth watching, along with some unintentional laughs. From the opening sequence of stormtroopers marching to some funk grooves, you realize this isn't exactly going to be the most subtle or least exploitive film out there. The film becomes more and more berserk as it continues, and is eventually about as easy to follow as "Eraserhead". Those looking for quality cinema, look elsewhere. However, those looking for some campy and politically incorrect laughs, this could provide some enjoyment for a rainy afternoon. (4/10)
