Worth seeing if you really dig Dolemite and the Human Tornado
4 March 1999 | by SarkhanSee all my reviews

This is the video to check out if you liked Dolemite and The Human Tornado but have no idea where this Dolemite dude came from. Don't expect another blaxploitation romp; this is a documentary with a healthy dose of Rudy Ray Moore standup. You'll learn the history of the Dolemite character and hear from various celebrities how much they dig Dolemite. Let's face it, though. If you like Dolemite and the Human Tornado, you're not as into all that as you are low budget madcap, hysterical stop-motion kung fu, and what Dolemite has to say to those who disrespect him. Rudy's standup act captures some of the glory, but this video is not on par with the actual movies. Rent it if you need to know more about Dolemite than you do now.
