Adam Cook’s review:
The likes of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have given the spoof movie a bad name over the last decade but thankfully it seems there is still some mileage in the comedy sub-genre. Unlike most recent spoof movies, Black Dynamite is actually affectionate towards the films it takes the piss out of. The attention to detail is fantastic, every element feels right from the costumes to the choice of shots and editing.
Michael Jai White has found the role he was born to play. It was obvious he would always look the part but the film proves what a great comic talent he is too. Whilst it is a film you’ll appreciate more if you are familiar with the films it references it is still pleasingly universal. Black Dynamite is one of the few genuinely funny films of the past few years.
