This has got to be one of the, if not the, worst movie ever made.

But this is a fun movie, I enjoyed it and it's a reminder of how weird the 1970s actually were.

Truly one of the all-time worst movies.

The enjoyable part of Dolomite is his rapping to the crowds and their reactions.

Odd when the drugged monotone of a narrated flashback matches the exact dialog after the flashback.

after the movie was finished i sat in the sofa maybe a 1/2 minute yawning...

There are some really long and boring stretches including some bits inside Dolemite's club.

Neither is the movie, though it's still hilarious and worth watching.

The non-stop action will keep you on the edge of your seat and will leave you begging for more.


It is so bad acting that it actually is quite funny.. And the fighting is a chapter for itself.. its hilarious.. In one scene Dolemite was kicking one of the cops in the face.. I could clearly see that the foot was at least 10cm from the cops face.. i rewinded to be sure..The movie is full of uninteresting dialogs and boring stories that Dolemite tells...

Some people call it blacksploitation others call it trash, I call it entertaining.

But if I'm going to talk about pointless characters, I've got to bring up the best: the hamburger pimp.

Worth watching for its own sake as well as from a cultural history perspective, as a lot of modern comedy and rap culture are rooted in movies like this.

Boring and fake .

For the most part this is a mildly entertaining film, although I doubt you'll find anyone that will try to say that this is some sort of classic or even a good picture.

Historically, it is worth watching because the seventies were an interesting time for grind-house movies...
