"Rated RRRRRRRAH!"


I'm re posting the trailer again for Black Dynamite, first because the version I had was taken down from You Tube and second, when I showed it to Richard from The Comic Box, he couldn't believe it was real. For those of you who think this is the best viral video ever, here's the official synopsis from the movie's website

This is the story of 1970’s action legend Black Dynamite. When “The Man” murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages, and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, Black Dynamite is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.

When I first saw it, I was actualy surprised at the work put into it, as cheap as it looks ("100 dollar suits! 10,000 dollar cars!"), but it shows that there is still a love for Blaxploitation flicks and Black filmakers as well. I also thought that Zoe Saldana looked a hell of a lot like Pam Grier since Black don't crack. But like I said before, any movie that has Brian McKnight, Arsenio Hall and Captain Kangaroo ain't all that bad.
