Dolelemite is a cult classic. Starring Rudy Ray Moore as the pimp superhero out to wrong rights whilst challenging the MAN along the way. He has two enemies, that no good Willie Green and the sleazy mayor. Watch Dolemite kick, punch, slap and pimp his way across the screen. What's the man's name? DOLEMITE!
Well, the movie was filmed with very low production values, Rudy Ray Moore's acting is wooden in the dramatic scenes, the script is corny and the supporting cast is filled with obvious non-actor. But the badness of Dolemite along with the bizarre fight scenes, weird characters and rapid fire delivery of Moore's stand up dialog (which he's a lot more comfortable speaking) more than make up for the rest of the fim's short comings.
Interesting film that paved the way for a generation of rappers and performers. To sell more of his party albums, Rudy Ray Moore made several on the cheap films during the seventies. Self produced and marketed he catered towards a specific audience. Some people call it blacksploitation others call it trash, I call it entertaining. Dolemite was followed by the semi-sequel The Human Tornado and a direct to video Return of Dolemite 25 years later.
