It falls into the category of what typically has become known as "Blaxploitation" films, but gave such films of the similar genre (for instance Coffy) a bad name.

Funny in ways that are as complex as the most challenging art film.
August 19, 2010
As the titular ex-CIA man, White reveals comic talents to match his martial artistry, delivering one-liners and roundhouse kicks with the same killer precision.
August 13, 2010
Outta sight!
August 13, 2010
A brilliant laugh-out-loud slapstick crowd pleaser made with love and talent.
August 12, 2010
Fond and very funny homage to the exploitation era.
August 12, 2010
Hilarious, and at just 85 minutes long, never outstays its welcome.
August 12, 2010
The portentous dialogue, two-track-recorded soundtrack (by Adrian Younge) and eager performances are all highly diverting.
August 12, 2010
A pin-sharp send-up of 1970s blaxploitation.
August 11, 2010
It works as well as it does largely because it displays such a genuine affection for the genre it pays tribute to.
August 11, 2010
An enjoyable, frequently hilarious action comedy with a witty script and a terrific performance from Michael Jai White...

Once you catch on to the string of in-jokes, the movie never stops making you laugh...
July 28, 2010
Such a bland and lifeless experience even the most ardent of Scott Sanders or Michael Jai White fans will do well to not grow bored before the end.

If the Man has got you down and your VHS copies of 'Shaft,' 'Superfly,' 'Dolemite' and 'I'm Gonna Git You Sucka' are all worn out, 'Black Dynamite' is here to save the day.

... a dead-on parody of the sloppy filmmaking, aggressive overacting and slapdash writing of the cheapest films of the genre.
January 31, 2010
Truly the funniest movie of 2009. Yeah, bust-a-gut hilarious. Paul Chambers, CNN.
January 18, 2010
Here, the acting, framing, focus, blocking, editing, sound and film processing all nail down the period so perfectly... It looks, sounds and feels as if it were shot in 1972.
January 15, 2010
Black Dynamite will stir some pleasant memories.
December 16, 2009
If the joke is somewhat one-note and eventually told too long and too often, at least it's a good joke.
November 24, 2009
Before an hour has passed tedium overtakes Black Dynamite -- one corny martial-arts sequence turns out to be plenty -- and all the good jokes dry up.
