An all-star cast led by Michael Jai White is featured in this 1970’s-style exploitation action film about the legendary super crime fighter Black Dynamite. “The Man” killed his brother, pumped heroin into local orphanages, and flooded the ghetto with sinisterly engineered malt liquor. Black Dynamite is the one hero willing to fight “The Man” all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.

“The acting, framing, focus, blocking, editing, sound and film processing all nail down the period so perfectly, the film, shot in 16mm resulting in wide depth of field and color banding, is indiscernible from its forebears… A fake Rolex couldn’t have better timing.” —Ruben Safaya, Cinemalounge
