The Buzz

“Brash, energetic, funky….Black Dynamite is pure entertainment” – Twitch Film
Sundance Film Festival – Official Selection


Watch out, there’s a new hero in town, and he delivers ass-kicking and lady-loving with equal style. The name’s BLACK DYNAMITE !  When “The Man” kills his brother and pumps heroin into the local orphanage, former CIA agent and karate expert Black Dynamite takes it upon himself to seek out revenge and justice, uncovering a hidden conspiracy that will take him all the way to the White House. With BLACK DYNAMITE,  director Scott Sanders and co-writer/lead actor Michael Jai White (SPAWN, THE DARK KNIGHT) have crafted a pitch-perfect throwback to ‘70s blaxploitation movies filled with memorable characters, killer one-liners, flawless costume design, and kick-ass fights!
