Black Dynamite

Official Selection 2009 Sundance Film Festival... A new Blaxplotation film should be dope for my generation.

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.


By the late 1960s, the war in bloody Vietnam was tearing the country apart. Black people hit the streets in protest, as it was often their sons and brothers being sent off to die in disproportionate numbers. Economically, Tricky Dick’s policy of “benign neglect” and the empty promises of Civil Rights legislation had brothers in an all too familiar position; broke and tired. Like many Americans, blacks looked to the silver screen for a momentary respite.
