I'm Gonna Get You Sucka

I'm Gonna Get You Sucka

A slick spoof of the Blaxploitation films of the 70's, which ranged from the cool (Shaft) to the ludicrous (Hammer). Directed, written and starring In Living Color's Keenan Ivory Wayans who portrays a soldier, returning home to find out that his brother is dead from an OG (Overdose of Gold Chains). He vows vengeance against the crime syndicate that killed his brother. He recruits the help of four former hipsters (Bernie Casey, Antonio Fargas, Jim Brown and Isaac Hayes) to help him defeat Mr. Big (John Vernon) and his illegal empire.

Though the plot I just described may sound like some idiotic, violent melodrama, it's actually a hip take-off on those serious (and mindless) crime movies. Hayes and Brown provide some of the biggest laughs in the film. However, the script loses momentum towards the end, and everything goes a little askew. There are plenty of moments that will have you rolling on the floor laughing so hard, you'll need paramedics to jump-start your heart.

My Rating = Three Stars
