EIFF 2009 Preview: Black Dynamite

9 Jun

In the run-up to the launch of next week’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, I’ll be posting the trailers to some of the films I think are worth spending your hard earned cash on.

First up, and in no particular order, is Blaxploitation spoof, Black Dynamite. Styled on those 1970s action flicks such which targeted the black urban audience, the film stars Michael Jai White as action hero Black Dynamite.

When The Man murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages, and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, Black Dynamite is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.

Black Dynamite first screening is at the Filmhouse on 20 June at 9pm – visit the EIFF website for more dates. View the trailer on YouTube:
