A few amazing things happened in 1976: Our country was celebrating our two hundred year anniversary, I was born, and Rudy Ray Moore followed up with a sort of sequel to his awesome classic Dolemite with a film called The Human Tornado!
This time around Dolemite (Moore) gets caught tapping the Sheriff of Abelmonte County’s darling and very white wife, he has to go on the lamb back to California to avoid getting whacked. When he returns back on the scene he has yet another obstacle to deal with; The Mafia and two of Queen Bee’s (Reed) girls being kidnapped in an attempt to push her nightclub out of business.
Queen Bee’s place has been booming - it’s the hot spot in town, and the mobs joint (Caveletti’s 20 Grand) down the road is taking a major hit due to a lack of patrons. So they force Queen Bee and the girls almost into slavery to work for the mob’s nightclub in exchange for keeping the kidnapped girls alive.
Of course Dolemite and his boys aren’t going to stand for this sort of shit, so he breaks out some of his mad kung-fu skills, says some crazy jibber jabber while he fights, and takes his revenge on a bunch of cheesy white dudes with 70’s mustaches.
The super hot body on Java while she is kicking ass, total insanity fighting segments in high speed, a weird witch with a torture chamber, and Dolemite in a sex scene that makes the ceiling collapse round out some classy stuff here. Dolemite also sports bullet proof vest that looks like a sheet of tinfoil.
There are only two things that bother me about this film. (Seriously!) During the weird sex scene involving Caveletti's wife with the giant jalopy titties and Dolemite, a bunch of naked black dudes climb out of kids jumbo building blocks. I know, it makes no sense, but she is supposed to be a sex fiend and is fantasizing taking a lot more than just Dolemites joint.
The other thing is the fact that the same cop from the the first innstallment is in this film too, but he doesn't know who Dolemite is? If this film was really meant to be a sequel there is no way he could honestly forget encountering Dolemite!
Ernie Hudson is in this. He is real young, sporting a bald head, and looking sort of like the 7Up "Uncola" guy had a kid with Mr. Clean. His name in the film is Bo. He reminds me of that turtle from the Bugs Bunny cartoon with a bald head. Thank goodness he grew his hair and eventually became a Ghostbuster.
The Human Tornado does kick major ass though. It's not as good as Rudy Ray Moore's original Dolemite, but it's still worth a few laughs. The original Dolemite carries a more serious theme (If you can call it that), but the absurdity of this one makes it awesome.
It’s best to watch Dolemite before The Human Tornado to understand the characters a bit more, but as sequels go this is one bad ass flick.
Here is an extended scene from the movie that is so retarded it's beyond words. Caution, it may give away a lot of the movie! The quality is poor here, but it will give you a great idea what you will get out of this film!
Get the box set, brush up on real blaxploitation!
