Black Dynamite

Black Dynamite

Available on iTunes, HBO Max
With a fist full of chase scenes, gunfights and Kung Fu, Black Dynamite is a riotous action comedy that perfectly tips its faux fur pimp hat to the blaxploitation films of yesteryear. Black Dynamite (martial arts star Michael Jai White: The Dark Knight, Exit Wounds) is the baddest cat to ever hit town. This ex-CIA commando rules the streets with a 44-Magnum in one hand and nunchucks in the other. With his soul brother brand of Kung Fu, he strikes fear into the hearts of suckers and chumps on both sides of the law, and with his super cool style, keeps the ladies begging for more. When Black Dynamite's brother Jimmy is mysteriously killed, the CIA calls him back into action. Tracing a bullet casing left at the scene of the crime, Black Dynamite finds himself battling pool hall thugs, pimps, pushers and monsters. In the process of solving his brother's murder, Black Dynamite uncovers a bigger plan by ‘The Man' to pump dope into the local orphanages and flood the ghetto with dubious malt liquor aimed to upset a soul brother's mojo. Upon meeting and romancing the beautiful, socially-minded orphan activist Gloria (Salli Richardson-Whitfield: I Am Legend), Black Dynamite decides to clean up the streets, declaring war on the scourges of the ghetto. Featuring Arsenio Hall (Coming to America) and written and directed by Scott Sanders (Thick as Thieves), Black Dynamite is a raucous homage to a long forgotten genre.
