Critic Reviews for Human Tornado

All Critics (3)

Rudy Ray Moore's signature style of guerilla blaxploitation filmmaking is as defiant, ribald, and outrageously funny as anything in the genre.

Audience Reviews for Human Tornado

Moore followed up "Dolemite" with this hilarious sequel. From the opening credits featuring our hero performing dance moves in a variety of wild pimp outfits you know this is gonna be a riot. I'm no fan of martial arts but the fight scenes in this are so over the top and poorly choreographed they make compelling viewing. Moore even pays homage to Nicholas Roeg by inter-cutting a sex scene with footage of him chowing down on some post-coitus fried chicken. The theme tune is fantastic and this movie's soundtrack is a must-have for funk fans.

Dolemite, you heard me!!! That's right he's back, and meaner than ever as the Human Tornado. The Human Tornado doesn't have anything on the original Dolemite, although I don't really see how this is a sequel. How is Dolemite all of sudden a rich pillar of the black community? Why does Blakeley the cop from the original (he's credited as Detective Pete, but they call him Blakeley) not know who Dolemite is? Other than that, all of the new characters are instant classics, from the gay guy on down to the sheriff, and even the new "creeper" wanna-be. But no one can ever replace Mitchell and White. They should have escaped from prison and helped the sheriff hunt down Dolemite. Now can you dig that? The best part of the movie has got to be Ernie Hudson's dramatic scene when his brother is shot. "He's just playin'! He's just playin'!" Other greats include the intro and Rudy's theme song, and the brief second Dolemite is shown eating chicken during sex. Hilarious Blaxploitation. So all you no business baring, insecure, rat soup eating motha's better watch out for Dolemite!!
