Former CIA agent Black Dynamite is understood by few but desired by every woman. When “The Man” murders his brother, traffics heroin into an orphanage and floods the ghetto with malt liquor, Black Dynamite is the only hero bad enough to fight back. A masterful homage to ’70s blaxploitation films.

Michael Jai White excels as the hero, “the smoothest, baddest mother ever to hit the big screen”. The screenplay both gently ridicules and celebrates the cult of uber-masculinity that went hand in hand with the genre.
Funny as hell. The little filmmaking gags (inconsistencies between shots, the boom mic being in the shot, etc.) blended well with the writing and action to create a pitch-perfect send up of blaxploitation films.
"I told you NEVER to interrupt me in the middle of kung-fu!"
A very funny parody not only on the blaxploitation films from the 1970s, but also on the whole bunch of spy, conspiracy, missing in action and kung fu movies - also imitating the defects of making films in the B movie genres. It's wonderful how Sanders uses every cliché to create a real over the top thing. And the script is utterly great ("Doughnots don't wear crocodile...").
Funny at the beginning and at the end, and very long in between. Weak music score, too bad ... Better watch good old SHAFT ... Amusant au début et à la fin, mais pour le reste le film se traine. Bande son décevante ...
A revoir SHAFT on perd moins son temps
Though it never quite reaches the flat-out hilarious level you'd want it to, a very entertaining genre spoof. Dozens of very quotable lines and a cast that gives it their all. It is dry in spots, but makes up for them with a few moments of inspired goofiness.
Hilarious parody of the blaxploitation film that is even funnier for exactly recreating the genre. This film looks like it's from 1973. This is one of the greatest technical feats in cinematic re-enactment. The best parodies have to be the things they are parodying.
I sort of enjoyed it but much of the spoofery was pretty garden variety silliness rather than fun jabs at blaxploitation. Would have enjoyed it more had it not kept tripping into Hot Shots territory. Michael Jai White, however, was amazing! Great comic timing and perfect execution of persona.
