This is the story of 1970s African-American action legend Black Dynamite. The Man killed his brother, pumped heroin into local orphanages, and flooded the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor. Black Dynamite was the one hero willing to fight The Man all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.. Written by
Michael Jai White has stated he was not just playing Black Dynamite, but also the actor playing Black Dynamte. The actor, Ferrante Jones, was a running back for the Baltimore Colts whose career ended due to a broken neck. If you pay attention you'll notice that Black Dynamite has a hard time turning his neck to one side. This is because of Jones' neck injury. See more »
When Black Dynamite is talking to Honey Bee, a tear running down Honey Bee's face disappears and reappears from shot to shot. This is deliberately mocking the lack of continuity shown by many of the movies that this film parodies. See more »
WoW, been a few years since something this creative came out!
When I was in my teens, it seemed like we got a few films a year that had a lot of hard work put into them but were done in such a way that the film feels like a "friend". It's comforting and has this sense that you get each other. Then at some point in the late 90's, they all but vanished. This is definitely one of those films.
Everything is outstanding. The sets, dialog, wardrobe, slapstick, action, score, characters, acting, writing, directing, cinematography. It leads me to imagine the production went incredibly smoothly and snag free. Sometimes things go so smooth they're slippery. That's the feel I get from this film. It's like seeing Chris Farley or John Candy in their best work.
Without ruining anything for you I will say this. The parodies are in your face yet sneak up on you. You'll either love this to death or absolutely hate it but if it ends up in your DVD collection, it'll probably end up with scratches from being handled and watched so much. Also, this isn't like the Wayan's spoofs which were then somehow spoofed themselves only poorly by junk like Epic Movie or Date Movie. This is a film that stands on it's own. The spoof qualities just sort of magnify the humor. It's a DVD worth buying.
