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
The boom microphone is visible several times on the top of the frame. Usually if a boom mike is visible in a finished film, it is either because of a mistake made by the filmmakers during shooting or (much more frequently) a mistake made by the projectionist at the movie theater - but in the case of this movie, the mike being visible is a joke meant to parody the lack of film production expertise on the sets of the original "blaxploitation" movies that this movie is referencing.

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.
