Black Dynamite 

Directed by Scott Sanders (Sony)

If I could write a one-word review of Black Dynamite it would be: "Awesome." Or maybe "righteous" would be better. It is quite simply funny, silly, stylish and enjoyable. You could also describe it as gloriously ridiculous---what Sanders has done is assembled all the best parts of 1970s Blaxploitation B-movies and taken them to absolute extremes. Any time you get a slain brother revenge story, a trip to Kung Fu Island and a showdown with the president all in one movie, you know somebody is doing something right. Hilarious dialogue, a kickass soundtrack and a complete rejection of trying to be anything more than what it is makes Black Dynamite work. It is unabashed campy fun. Can you dig it?
