2009. USA. Dir: Scott Sanders. With Michael Jai White, Tommy Davidson. 84 min.
A smart, pitch-perfect send-up of the blaxploitation film presents the eponymous antidote to Austin Powers – the baddest gat-toting, bitty-bangin, fro-coiffin’, jive-talkin’ action hero since the seventies. When a conspiracy is hatched involving malt liquor, a heroin ring, and Richard Nixon himself, nobody can straighten it out (read: kick serious ass) quite like Black Dynamite. Shazam!
DATE: Tonight, November 12
