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.

Hilarious film ruined by lousy directing
11 July 1999 | by MooVbuff-3See all my reviews

This film has some really funny lines in it but is hard to appreciate because of its poor handling of the plot and also the bad editing job of the film! There are many subplots that aren't needed in the film, scenes that never develop into anything significant later in the movie. Someone earlier mentioned the same scene of a view from an apartment window used from the director's previous film. This scene (lasting all of about thirty seconds) seems to have been left out in the new video version of the movie. It was intact on an older video release, on a rental videotape. Anyone know why they cut this short scene out where Steve is shown the amenities of his new apartment??? The film was not prepared properly for video. Lots of camera shots are cut off, and for the most part of the movie you can only see partial head shots in closeups! And for one more regret, the end was so abrupt if I had blinked I would have missed it!!! Nevertheless, I still enjoy watching it and recommend it.
