Black Dynamite (2009) Poster

Goofs

Anachronisms 

Although most goofs are intentional, the movie's time period predates some of the weapons and helicopters shown.

Boom mic visible 

The boom microphone is visible several times on the top of the frame. Usually if a boom mic 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 mic 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.

Character error 

In the diner scene, on the blackboard with the day's specials, scrambled is misspelled as "scrambed" and specials is written as "special's".

Continuity 

When Black Dynamite is shot in the shoulder and goes to the hospital, the doctor clearly says, "No fragments, in and out - you're very lucky, BD," indicating that the bullet went right through Black Dynamite. However he is only bandaged at the entry point of the bullet and there is no exit wound on his back.

In the diner, Black Dynamite writes "M&Ms" on the black board, but later on the second "M" looks more like a squiggle and there is no "s" at the end.

Factual errors 

In the animated closing credits, Bokeem Woodbine's character name is listed as Black Hand Jack. The character is actually Back Hand Jack.

In another nod to blaxploitation films, when Black Dynamite enters Jimmy's apartment finding it ransacked and is attacked by the Heavy Hitters; Black Dynamite fires eighteen shots from a six shot revolver.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Cream Corn runs away from Black Dynamite from the barbershop, his boots turn from high heeled to flat bottomed, back to high heeled again. This is a parody of poorly edited blaxploitation films.

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.
