Product Description

Product Description

An All-Star Cast Led By Michael Jai White Is Featured In This 1970'S-Style Blaxploitation Action Fiilm About The Legendary Super Crime Fighter "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

Amazon.ca

When drug dealers take out his kid brother, ex-CIA agent Black Dynamite (Spawn's Michael Jai White) makes like a karate-chopping dynamo to track them down. Armed with a .44 Magnum, a set of nunchucks, and a sexy 'stache, Big D starts out in the City of Angels, where his buddies Cream Corn (In Living Color's Tommy Davidson), a hustler, and Bullhorn (co-writer Byron Minns), a club owner, offer to lend a hand. The deeper Dynamite digs, the more endangered his life becomes as he uncovers a conspiracy to keep the black man down by flooding the streets with malt liquor and filling the country's orphanages with smack. Since the smooth operator has a way with the ladies, he also enlists Gloria (I Am Legend's Salli Richardson-Whitfield), a socially-conscious soul sister, to aid in his clean-up campaign. Director Scott Sanders and White, who co-wrote the script, collaborated on 1998's Thick as Thieves, and their chemistry shines through. If the supporting cast can be a little wooden, White gives Shaft's Richard Roundtree a run for the money with his cool-cat charisma. Set in 1972, Black Dynamite doesn't just act like a movie from the Superfly era, it looks and sounds like one, too, courtesy Adrian Younge's old-school funk score, Shawn Maurer's 16mm cinematography, a cartoon credit sequence, and some carefully choreographed boom mic appearances. And dig those crazy cameos: Arsenio Hall as Tasty Freeze, Brian McKnight as Sweet Meat, and NBA veteran John Salley as Kotex. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Michael Jai White is...Black Dynamite!

Shot on 70's film stock to give it that saturated vintage look, and loaded with great original music, Black Dynamite is a treat. It looks authentically 70's, but it's not for everybody. Some will look at the poorly focused camera work, the shoddy stunts, the bad dialogue, and the rubber baseball bats and turn it off immediately. Others will "get it" and appreciate this for what it is: A skillfully directed spoof movie that actually works!

Michael Jai White came up with the look and concept of the title character, Black Dynamite. Cleverly spoofing 70's blaxploitation and kung-fu films, with built-in defects such as visible boom mikes and actors that are clearly reading their lines off cue cards, this movie comes off so authentic that some people actually think it's a low budget 70's film.

Black Dynamite, a former CIA agent who's seen action in 'Nam, hits the streets to find out who killed his brother. This takes him face to face with a drug dealing gang lead by Rafelli (Mike Starr), and some kung-fu treachery that goes all the way to the top. Black Dynamite is the toughest cat in town, a kung fu expert and smooth with the ladies. Yet he's not all bad -- he's got a soft spot for orphans, and a vendetta against drug dealers.

As the movie progresses, it gets more and more absurd. Starting off as a street vigilante story, it eventually escalates to conspiracy and a deadly encounter on Kung Fu Island. By the time you get to the climax, you will hardly believe it. Tie this in with some pretty awesome fighting moves by White, and some infinitely quotable dialogue, and you have a movie that you will watch over and over again.

Black Dynamite as a movie just works.

If you think this movie should be in your blu-ray collection it probably does
Makes fun of vintage black indie films. Dosn't bore you, comedy is good and fight scenes are intense

When Black Dynamite finds out that his brother has been murdered, the police beg him not to leave a river of blood, So he finds out who did it and leaves just a little puddle. If you like 70's Action movies this is it!
