Movie Reviews

The Best Brothas in Blaxploitation Cinema!!!!
Twister Kicker | New York | 11/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This has to be the best film combo I've seen in ages.
The almighty Dolemite Rudy Ray Moore and Jim `Black Belt Jones' Kelly in a double feature!

Shaolin Dolemite is a great film that's played for laughs.
Rudy Ray re-wrote the dialogue so the story centers around him searching for his student Tupac(Eugene Tomas).
Along the way he encounters Ninjas,Monks,the Black Drunken Master,Sam the Spliff and the Lost tribe of Shabazz.

The film was directed by Robert Tai,one of the men resposible for the 5 Venoms films.

Black Samurai is a low budget film but very fun to watch.
Jim Kelly definitely had charisma and should have stayed away from films like this.

All I can say is that if anybody wants to get a feel of what it was like on 42nd st. or the Loop `back in the day',then sit down with some popcorn and enjoy!

Better than most

"First off I'm a fan of the "over-overdubbed fu" thing. Kung Pow, Iron Fist Pillage, Prisoner of 5 Boulders, and now Shaolin Dolemite.

The humor is hit and miss.. If someone mispronouncing Tupac's name would make you chuckle, even just a bit, this is for you. If the idea of a black drunken master makes you giggle, this is for you. If you can't believe there's really a fu movie with an effeminate sword-fighting-coon-skin-cap-wearing Davey Crocket, you're going to die laughing.

If you want a serious movie, run away screaming now.

The quality of the video isn't great, but it's from an old fu movie so what can ya do.. I gave this a 5 instead of a 3 or 4 because of the very very sweet extended fight scenes, which have the original chinese dialouge without subs.. Awesome stuff.

Black Samurai cracked me up.. I won't go into detail but there's an afro and a samurai involved.. how can you lose?

Bad movie heaven!"
