Product Details


Product Description

Based on the best-selling book, Mandingo is a shocking look at plantation life in the Deep South. Mede (Ken Norton) is a slave whose master, Hammond Maxwell (Perry King), intends on keeping him as a prizefighter. As Maxwell focuses his attention on his wenches and Mede's brutal training, his neglected wife (Susan George) turns her passions towards Mede himself. The sordid doings explode across the screen as Mandingo plays out its savage and dramatic story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have we forgotten??? Or do we choose to forget??? March 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
As I read these reviews, I have to wonder what is going in in this country today. Have we really been able to wipe out the cruelty of slavery from our history books. As offensive and unpleasant these scenes may be for us to bear, it is nothing compared to the slaves to which this was their day to day reality. It DID happen. To hear so many people state that the movie showed untrue scenes is very disturbing. You know the bible says that the biggest feat that the devil has achieved is to convince us that he doesn't exist! This is a good movie and it is a much watch to get a true depiction of just how cruel and insensitive slaveholders could be. The sexual aspect of slavery is often ignored in the history books - this movie does a great job bringing that part of history to light.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Scenery, Trashy Story March 22 2004
By tdk
Format:VHS Tape
Mandingo depicts the cruelties of slavery in a much more graphic manner than made for tv movies like Roots and Queen ever could. Lots of nudity, sexual situations and sadism. While the movie is highly unsettling, I would recommend it to those who want an un-sentimental look into antebellum southern life. The scenery (Louisiana and Missisippi) is fantastic, and Susan George's hammy performance as the mistress is amusing.

the producers did a great job of harking back to an abominable era in human history. It is a valuable reminder of how NOT to live!

4.0 out of 5 stars hot Southern sleaze...but riveting June 28 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Part Harold Robbins and part Euripedes, this film has brutal depictions of slavery, abhorrent language, and extraordinary cinematography by Richard Kline.
The imagery of Falconhurst, the huge but decrepit plantation of a cruel and vicious man (James Mason in a strange and brilliant performance) is fantastic; with peeling paint and filthy mosquito nets, winding staircases of gleaming wood, dark steamy rooms, and lush exteriors with drooping wisteria.
The score by Maurice Jarre also adds much to the atmosphere, with Muddy Waters singing "Born in This Time".
Perry King is excellent as Mason's son, broken in body, weak in spirit, knowing what is right and often doing what is wrong; as his wife, Susan George is appropriately annoying and trashy, and as his "wench", Brenda Sykes is lovely. Heavyweight boxer Ken Norton, who won over Mohammed Ali (and broke his jaw) in 1973, made his impressive screen debut as Mede the Mandingo.
This film is a mass of contradictions, which is probably what keeps one glued to the screen. It is manipulative yet unpredictable, gratuitous and raw but thought-provoking; some of it might be absurd, but many of the situations shown did happen.
With all the brutality, nudity, incest, and most of all, the repellent language, this is not a film for the young, or anyone squeamish about violence.
Total running time is 127 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars HARD TO WATCH, BUT EXCELLENT FILM Feb. 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I found this film to be very difficult to watch, but that is only because i am sensitive to racial slurs, movies, etc. But overall the acting was actually quite good and it did portray slavery at it's worse. It is offensive to both races but is interesting. Also, it is interesting to see how "thinking" was different then than now(hopefully). If you are not squeamish with disturbing movies, then this would be a good film.
