A brilliant laugh-out-loud slapstick crowd pleaser made with love and talent.
August 12, 2010
The portentous dialogue, two-track-recorded soundtrack (by Adrian Younge) and eager performances are all highly diverting.

Black Dynamite will stir some pleasant memories.

If the joke is somewhat one-note and eventually told too long and too often, at least it's a good joke.

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.

Even though it sounds funnier than it plays, between the song and the nun chucks, I was happy.

The details are perfect, from the particle-board sets to the porn-ready score. (And dig those polyester suits.) But just like the movies it parodies, this one feels over long before it's actually done.
October 16, 2009
An enjoyable celebratory ode to a fiercely entertaining counterculture-inspired genre.

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.
October 16, 2009
A cheerfully affectionate if fit fully amusing spoof of '70s blaxpoitation movies, Scott Sanders' Black Dynamite painstakingly nails the cheesy look, music and martial arts moves of the originals.

If there's a night at the movies more fun than this deadpan blaxploitation flick, it's probably boosted by something bought in a dark alley.

See this one with a crowd, and remember Black Dynamite's immortal words: "Doughnuts don't wear alligator shoes."
October 15, 2009
Sanders delights in the amateurishness of blaxploitation, from clunky exposition to shootouts that violate all rules of continuity and perspective to a visible boom mic, which spends so much time onscreen that it practically deserves its own credit.
October 15, 2009
I am happy to say it brings back an element sadly missing in recent movies, gratuitous nudity.
October 14, 2009
As the theme song declares, this cat is dy-no-mite!
October 14, 2009
Black Dynamite blends satire, nostalgia, and cinema deconstruction into a one-of-a-kind comedy high.
October 14, 2009
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.
