I'm waiting for Black Dynamite 2
Verified purchase
This is an excellent film. This is sophisticated comedy, yet gives the impression of being very simple. That's part of its beauty.

I bought this as I'm a fan of Michael Jai White (and thought 'Blood and Bone' was great). Here, you'll find all the usual kung fu magic, although with a 70's feel.

White co-wrote this film, and obviously has a great sense of humour. This movie takes the piss out of 70's action films, and it's hugely entertaining. Black Dynamite is an ex-military, special forces guy who now operates as a sort of gangster, alongside various pimps and prostitutes. He uncovers a diabolical plot - led by the US Government - to shrink the private parts of black men ...

Why it's not been released in the UK on Blu-ray I don't know. So I bought the German version. It plays perfectly.

From beginning to end I was either smirking, laughing or nodding in appreciation.

It's been followed by an animated series ... I hope there'll be a 'Black Dynamite 2'!

Shoulda never been a sleeper

What would a Rudy Ray Moore movie be like if Rudy Ray could really karate worth a damn? And how would I'm Gonna Git You Sucka play if 9 parts out of 10 of it were up to the standard of the best 1? Black Dynamite has both these questions covered, and it'll surely make you glad you asked.

A comedy! Definitely a comedy!
Verified purchase
This is such a master piece- yes I use that word. It’s a proper gem, so clever in recreating tge ‘blaxploitation’ genre and great in jokes to the industry, booms in shot, stunt doubles clearly recognised. The fourth wall is broken on many occasions- I think the film is so so good at the pastiche of the genre that at times vieewers will forget they are actually watching a comedy- a very funny one at that!

no subtitles on either downloads.
Verified purchase
very upset that we downloaded both options only not to have subtitles on both. I would like my money back as altho we watched it as a family, the hearing impaired family member missed so much of it.
looked like a funny film.

Hidden gem

No idea how I missed ths film,
but it's B-Movie/Blaxploitation heaven.

The fighting scenes are truly something else.

It's Dynamite!
Verified purchase
Pretty funny film, satirising so-called "blaxploitation"movies, action movies, Rambo, the Vietnam War, President Nixon, the civil rights movement, and probably several other sixties cultural icons I have forgotten to mention here. Dynamite!

Jive-funny...
Verified purchase
Great movie... funny as, a-jive-Turkey-mother-on-a-Saturday-Night-trying-to-disco-dance....
This film has EVER blaxploitation stereotype trope in it... You name it... it is all here...

If you love anything Afrocentric, you will love this... the fashions, the music (British library music)
the action... buy this dvd... or be a "jive-turkey-etc-etc-etc..."

Great discovery!

I judged the film by the title and decided to take a gamble. A great comedy film with loads of great dialogue and fighting! What more do you want?
