  1. Along the way, Black Dynamite blends satire, nostalgia, and cinema deconstruction into a one-of-a-kind comedy high.

    An enjoyable celebratory ode to a fiercely entertaining counterculture-inspired genre.
  3. 83
    Sometimes feels like an all-time classic short film stretched to feature length, but it’s blissfully short, and it peaks at the end with a groovy cartoon during the closing credits.
  4. You could argue, I suppose, that this film, a Sundance hit, is essentially a funny sketch padded out to feature length. And what of it, my man?

    Hilarious. That's the best word to describe this film. Yes, it's one joke that plays out for an entire 90 minutes, but who cares? Hilarious. That's the best word to describe this film. Yes, it's one joke that plays out for an entire 90 minutes, but who cares? Any joke that can be told for 90 minutes and keep audiences entertained is one hell of a thing. The film hits the nail on the head every single time...even making fun of the poor production values from the blacksploitation era, with intentional "bad" editing, and ridiculous cheesy special FX. Even the acting is intentionally "bad." I can honestly say that this is the best comedy that has come out so far this year (and that includes The Hangover). Full Review »
