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

  1. I pre-ordered “Black Dynamite” back in September. I patiently waited to receive the disc which should have been released on 11/17/2009. You can imagine P.O.’d I was to open my package from Amazon on 11/19/2009 to find I’d been shipped “Black Soul Dynamite” a 3 disc collection of marginal 70’s/80’s exploitation films instead! Evidently the DVD release has been pushed back until early 2010 with not specific date given as of yet.

    Amazon’s customer support explained their shipping error. However no explanation was given as to why customers who pre-ordered the “Black Dynamite” DVD were not informed of the change in the release date or why the original orders were not put on hold. Anyone have this experience? Two big thumbs down to Amazon’s customer support for not being on point informing it’s customers about the pre-order status for this title.

  2. I saw Black Dynamite this weekend and must say it’s the most fun I’ve had at a movie since I first saw Airplane when I was a kid. I was laughing non-stop from beginning to end and can’t wait for the DVD version of it. Seriously folks, a really GREAT comedy!

  3. Definitely one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. Sure, the trailer gives you 75% of the good stuff from the movie, but in a world where so many trailers are better than the films themselves, this is really saying something. Black Dynamite (he never has any other name throughout the whole film) is riveting in nearly every scene he’s in, and there were at least two laugh-out-loud funny scenes for me.

    The film is also full of great lines:

    – “You’re doing alright for yourself. Look at this place – you must have an 8-track in every room.”

    – “I get off in 15 minutes.” – “You’re right about that.”

    – “How did you get in here?” – “I walked in.”

    – “I’m spending more on bail money than I’m gettin’ in tail money.”

    – “I will not hesitate to lay the hammer down, on any clown, that comes around.”

    Yes, there’s lots of rhymin’ jive in the movie, not to forget all the gratuitous mention of whiteys, Uncle Toms, crackers, and every other black cliche. The little things are really funny too, like the Captain Kangaroo Pimp, or the “Chili and Donuts” fast food joint. The sexy zodiac animation, as well as the over-the-top closing credits animationare also a nice touch. The “seventies effects” run throughout the film, such as the crazy driving scenes, and the “Bruce Lee’s deadliest duel” daily workout is pretty outrageous.

    The storyline gets ridiculous at one point, and the “nefarious plot” bit really outstays its welcome, but when it goes to the level of “Enter the Dragon” and then takes it one level higher, it really goes off the wall. I wonder if this one will become a cult classic on the level of “The Big Lebowski.”

  4. Watched this movie for the first time and Loved it!! read the other reviews as they go into more detail but if you love a funny movie that doesnt take itself too serious then buy this.. This film will be a welcome addition to any collection.

  5. I was lucky enough to catch this playing during the one and ONLY one weekend that the only theater was playing it in my area, and even then I had to drive over 1/2 hour. I am not going to go too much into details as other reviews have covered the movie. I just want to give my 5 star rating as it is beyond funny. I was laughing pretty much none stop to the point of tearing up. Its been a long time since my face and stomach have hurt after watching a movie. As some other reviews online will say, the ending did go in a weird and kind of dumb direction but it really didn’t take away from how great the rest of the movie was and its definitely worth seeing.
