Until this moment we cannot be certain that the movie is going to employ every cliche of antebellum melodrama.

Viewed with fresh eyes, it can credibly be seen as revisionist history of a particularly savage kind.

This is a deeply depressing film. The main problem is that shock value is the centerpiece, so the theme of slavery is just a vehicle for horrific gore and interracial sex.

Mandingo is racist trash, obscene in its manipulation of human beings and feelings, and excruciating to sit through.

Mandingo is excessive, yet its excesses invariably reveal the caustic truths of social critique.

The performances are overdramatized and unbelievable in a script that suffers from the same weaknesses.

Good to see Fleischer returning to the kind of psycho-pathological thriller that he can handle so well.
