Many films in the history of the cinema
have been difficult to identify, and this
one embodies some of the typical
exasperations of critiquing film. Definitely
a hit or miss film, you either have to
know about the blaxploitation movement
of have a very low sense of humor. Since
I have both attributes, I give this movie
a 6/10. Some of the moments were
genuinely funny and entertaining, but
overall, I probably wouldn't pay to see
this film (I work at a theater, and get to
see this stuff for free). Eddie Griffin was
surrounded by a rather solid supporting
cast which seemed to parody all of the
common elements of a typical blaxploitation
film. But then again, is this film really
anti-white propaganda or some silly
parody? It's hard to tell, which means
the decision is certainly up to the viewer.
