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.

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.

Black Dynamite gets the details right, but so what? The result is like watching rightly vilified movies such as Epic Movie, Date Movie, or Meet The Spartans, but without as many scenes of characters being kicked in the balls.

Unless you're seeing Black Dynamite with a slap-happy midnight movie crowd, the film's energy saps about halfway through and leaves you glumly anticipating the next obvious plot point.
May 3, 2009
Generally humorless and pointless, devoid as the film is of any commentary on the genre to which it's paying loving tribute.

Don't blame The Man, blame the overdose of irony.

As a five-minute clip on YouTube, this spoof might be a small masterpiece. As a feature film, it's both too much and not nearly enough.

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.

Nothing in Black Dynamite captures the exhilarating absurdity of Pam Grier hiding razors in her Afro in Coffy -- or the loony genre experimentation in Pootie Tang.

It works as well as it does largely because it displays such a genuine affection for the genre it pays tribute to.

I am happy to say it brings back an element sadly missing in recent movies, gratuitous nudity.

Even though it sounds funnier than it plays, between the song and the nun chucks, I was happy.
October 13, 2009
A terrific satire of seventies blaxploitation classics

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.

a muscular, mustachioed, lethally suave motharf*cka, armed with nunchuks, kung-fu kicks, and a roaring .44 Magnum, has come to rescue jive turkey movie auds from spoof-film purgatory

If you revel just a tiny bit in the 'blaxploitation' genre, then Black Dynamite is a sweet stew of shut-yo'-mouth that'll keep you loaded with glee for its apt 90 minutes.

As Dynamite kung-fu-fights his way through a vast conspiracy involving smack-addled orphans, malt liquor, and the best (read: worst) exploding-car scene of 2009, you'll feel a rush of '70s nostalgia you never knew you had.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Truly the funniest movie of 2009. Yeah, bust-a-gut hilarious. Paul Chambers, CNN.
