Black Dynamite (2009)

Links: TVTropes, Wikipedia, IMDB (7.4).

This over-the-top spoof/homage of 1970's B-movie blaxploitation films is an enjoyable ride from beginning to end, a nice blend of parody and nostalgia.  The characters are non-stop fun, the plots are enjoyably over-the-top, and the deliberate use of continuity errors, filming mistakes, and bad stock footage adds to the charm.  Essentially, this film is to the blaxploitation genre what the Austin Powers series is to the 60s James Bond films.  Score: 4 stars out of 4.
