As an early-'80s baby, my knowledge of blaxploitation is limited to early viewings with my dad, who was probably more into the kung-fu than the sociological aspect. I can honestly say my enjoyment of the film was not affected at all by that, but I wonder if rabid fans of the genre are as pleased as I am, or if they'll grow tired of the spot-on, almost redundant tricks used here. After all, I initially loved Hot Shots because I hated, rather than loved Top Gun. An example would be the overtly literal soundtrack lyrics about things happening onscreen. A very real thing in films then, its use here still manages to draw smiles with lyrics that actually come before the onscreen action. Like many jokes in Black Dynamite, it's subdued and doesn't ask you to laugh at it, but it's there if you want to.

The deceptively simple plot of Black Dynamite, conceived by White and Byron Minns, is as steeped in convention as you'd think. After a drug deal gone wrong ends in his brother's murder, Black Dynamite reaccepts his "license to kill" and returns to his former post in the CIA. He rounds up a group of ridiculously aloof gangsters to aid him in cleaning up the streets (including freeing an orphanage from a smack problem) and halting the widespread distribution of Anaconda Malt Liquor throughout the region. Helping him are pimp/informant Cream Corn (a zany Tommy Davidson), the line-rhyming Dolemite-lite Bullhorn (Minns), and a group of pimps and hustlers including Arsenio Hall, Cedric Yarborough, Bokeem Woodbine, John Salley, and a militant Phil Morris, all of whom are predictably adept at nailing their performances. Other stars include Kevin Chapman as CIA guy O'Leary, James McManus and Nicole Sullivan as Richard Nixon and wife, Salli Richardson as Black Dynamite's love interest Gloria, Kym Whitley as queen hoe Honeybee, and still many more waiting for you to identify them. Yes, I did say Richard Nixon. This one goes all the way to the top, brother.

While the plot is similar to many of the era, Black Dynamite works as a parody due to Scott Sanders' deliberately amateurish direction and Adrian Younge's continuity-skewered editing, both of which come very close to topping the laughs brought on by White's supa-fly performance. Almost every gimmick possible is milked for humor, and for me, it all worked. I know not everyone will get into it, and for some it will grow old, but those people will probably stop looking for the details, and they are what make Black Dynamite as good as any Zucker-Abrams-Zucker production. Sure, the boom-mike jokes are cheap, and some puns are groan-worthy, but for each one of those, there are a dozen moments that ham-fistedly redeem it. Example: inside a vehicle, the driver is turned to the backseat while he talks, but through the windshield, the stock footage shown has curves and things that would be impossible to drive blindly. Explained like that, the humor isn't really present, but when viewed, it's a delightful little detail that might go unnoticed if you're not looking for it.
