Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A noisy, flashy, wicked kaleidoscope that mercilessly parodies the blaxploitation genre and Hollywood's miserable stereotypes of African-Americans.

Film Threat

Nearly everything it needs for status as a cult classic except a star turn in the lead role

Audience Reviews for Darktown Strutters (Get Down and Boogie)

While watching this I kept asking myself, "is this really a movie?". Unfortunately it is a movie. Who knows what the plot or storyline is, I had no idea, and there didn't seem to even be one. This movie is incredibly stupid.

Super Reviewer

Utterly delusional Blaxploitation that makes Boss Nigger look like a Disney production. The scenes aren't as shocking as they are completely out of left field and just plain WRONG. The action scenes are genuinely well shot and fun. But I mean, it's kind of hard to screw up a chase scene with KKK members on motorbikes and awesome buggies and other wacky stuff that are in this. The point is that it's a competently executed movie with an active imagination.
