Michael Jai White’s impact on the Blaxploitation genre in 2009 with “Black Dynamite” is undeniable, and now he takes on Spaghetti Westerns with “Outlaw Johnny Black.” This well-crafted comedy follows Johnny Black, a gunslinger seeking revenge against Outlaw Brett Clayton. While the humor in this film is more tempered than its predecessor, White’s sincere approach and tight choreography elevate the experience. “Outlaw Johnny Black” stands out as a notable addition to the small pool of Black-helmed Westerns, positioning White alongside industry greats like Poitier and Van Peebles. With a nuanced portrayal of a Western hero, White successfully caters to a new generation, offering a fresh take on the genre. Visit afdah 2 for more!
