The first thing most people see or hear about Black Dynamite is the superb trailers that did the rounds on the internet back in 2008/2009. So if you haven’t heard about it before I suggest you watch this trailer and get down with your bad self.
This is Michael Jai White’s passion project and he’s put together a really solid comedy. Yes it is only really one joke, a parody of 70s blaxploitation pics, but it is a good one. Taken to an extreme and then pushed even further this is clearly a film made with affection and some pretty sharp knowledge of the era it mimics. Crash zooms, visible boom mics, low grade film, lionising kung fu – it’s all here. Treat yourself and get this smooth, smooooth piece of action watched.
