    This is so bad that I actually enjoyed it more than Black Belt Jones, which had the much higher budget clearly. How can you not be entertained by a movie with Satanic cults, midgets (a lot of midgets) and tons of fake blood, plus Jim Kelly's kick ass Afro/mutton chops? I've never seen a movie with worse acting in my life. Movies where people try to simulate bad acting do not come close to the wooden scenes these people put together. It's special in a bad good way.

    It's not brilliant, but Jim Kelly fights midgets and a vulture... sooo... 2.5 stars.

    A prime example of how NOT to make a martial arts action movie. It's so cheesy and everything about reeks bad from the dialogue to the acting and the half-assed fight scenes. Our hero has to fight his way through some devil worshippers, zulu warriors, some demented midgets and a vulture!!! Some very unintentionally hilarious scenes throughout this movie. You'll make yourself sick laughing through the entire 82 mins. Never before have I seen such an embarrasing and inept movie but it's never boring. It's got terrible and uninspired acting, directing, and writing. If you're desperate for a cheap laugh and to see how crap this is by all means take a look. Absolutely appalling in every aspect.

    "Black Samurai" aurait pu être un de ces films "tellement mauvais que c'est bien", mais en fait c'est tellement naze que c'est juste moyen, on se fait chier au début puisque Jim Kelly ne fait rien d'autre que rouler des mécaniques, parler, conduire une super caisse et penser à sa meuf qu'il embrasse partout sauf sur la bouche ! Dans ce film là, qui mêle toujours blaxploitation et arts martiaux, vient s'ajouter un peu de sorcellerie en la personne du méchant de l'histoire, Janicot le Warlock qui possèderait des pouvoirs magique, vaudou etc, d'ailleurs pour nous montrer que c'est du vaudou on a droit à des danseurs fringué comme un film raciste sur l'Afrique, et ce fameux Warlock a plus l'air d'un comptable qu'un sorcier tellement il n'a rien de menaçant. Le méchant vraiment charismatique se trouve être la femme jouée par la foutrement belle et canon Marylin Joi. C'est toujours aussi mal édité (les parties censurées se voient à des km), mal joué (Kelly se contracte comme s'il se chiait dessus), mal chorégraphié (une catastrophe) et Kelly ne se défait jamais de l'influence de Bruce Lee, ça en fait mal aux yeux et aux oreilles, et le film va super loin dans la connerie et l'absurde. Le combat dans la mousse n'était rien à côté de Jim Kelly, l'athlète d'1m88 qui se bat contre des nains par exemple !!!!!! C'est très très moyens, mal fichu mais ça reste une curiosité, et puis Joi rattrape le reste !

    One of the best cheesy Kung-Fu movies around. Jim Kelly completely rocks. Throw in all the midgets, snakes, jet packs, cavemen, bad dubbing and the biggest vulture in the world (which gets it's ass kicked), you have the makings of cinematic gold.
