Until this moment we cannot be certain that the movie is going to employ every cliche of antebellum melodrama.

This is a deeply depressing film. The main problem is that shock value is the centerpiece, so the theme of slavery is just a vehicle for horrific gore and interracial sex.

Mandingo is racist trash, obscene in its manipulation of human beings and feelings, and excruciating to sit through.
