Black Dynamite

     Keeping on my parody/ comedy kick, I decided to check out the movie Black Dynamite, and i have never been this at a loss for words to describe a movie.
     What I can say is, ther was a lot of good and a LOT of bad to this movie. But from this point we will go with the basics.

     Adirect homage to movies such as Cleopatra Jones, The Legend Of Dolamite, and many others, Black Dynamite is the brotha among brothas. Every woman wants him, every man wants to be him. A retired millitary expert and former C.I.A. agent, Black Dynamite is a one man army determined to protect his community & clean up the streets.
     With layer upon layer of stereotypical 1970's and a film style that pulls off the feel of a old film, it gives you the feeling that you are inside an old drive in. But in my opinion, this is where it also fails.
      Most of the jokes in the movie are very predictable, except for the majopr plot twist, and the movie rely very heavily on bad cliche for most of the humor.
      The best part of the movie though, comes from the feel of the film. Truthfully, the feel of the old drive in is so real with this movie, that you can almost smell the popcorn. Also the grouping of well known African American actors was amazing. All roles were played to their fullest, but there was a lot left to be desired. Still worth a watch though.
