I read a review that called this film offensive and I must say, I really think that reviewer got the point of the movie entirely wrong. This movie did include negative portrayals of people of all races, and yes, African-Americans in particular. I wasn't offended however (as someone who is Black) because it is a parody of the Blaxploitation genre which often included offensive stereotypes. Since it is satirical, it is basically mocking those stereotypes, not reinforcing them. There's no reason to get offended over parody: it isn't trying to portray black people negatively, it's just making commentary on a certain genre that was extremely controversial and also very campy in the first place. Also, this movie is funny as hell. Enjoy :)

Funny! Michael Jai White's hilarious take on the blacksploitation movies of the 70s is a must see. Some of the jokes are broad but most are subtle and reflect the low budget films that fill the genre. White plays an ex-military hero who sets out for revenge for his brother and eventually goes up against the drug lords who are dragging his community down and even goes fist-to-jaw with The Man, himself. Apperances by Arsenio Hall and Cedric the Entertainer make this movie a must own on DVD or blu-ray!

I am so glad that Dish TV is giving out Encore and all of the Starz channels for free for a year. If I had paid to see this movie I'd feel even worse than I do now after having just finished watching it. It is no wonder that this 3 million dollar atrocity grossed less than 300 thousand. If I were black and had gone to a theater to see this movie I would have walked out in disgust at the stereotypical, and no way in the world humorous portrayals of my race. Only because IMDB had such stellar reviews of this movie did my husband and I continue to uncomfortably watch it thinking it absolutely had to get better. Unfortunately, not only did it not get better, but WE were offended by the tasteless ending. P.S. Cedric the Entertainer was NOT in this movie.
