The Human Tornado (1976)

Free Great Movies Review

  •  (4 out of 5 stars)

The Human Tornado (1976) has got everything you want in a night at the movies full of fun blaxploitation entertainment: karate, lovemaking, standup comedy, dancing, singing, torture, car chases, and much more. This sequel to Dolemite (1975) is every bit as entertaining and hilarious as the first movie, especially when Rudy Ray Moore as Dolemite is on the screen. This time Dolemite finishes up his comedy tour and throws a party in his mansion. A racist sheriff and his officers crash the party and find Dolemite making love to the sheriff's wife. Never afraid to bare it all, Dolemite dashes naked out of his mansion and flees to California. There the central plot takes place as Dolemite tracks down Queen Bee who runs a nightclub. Her nightclub has been shut down by the local mob boss Joe Cavaletti, and two of Queen Bee's girls are kidnapped and sent to be tortured in Pasadena. Dolemite takes it upon himself to rescue the girls and take out Cavaletti and all his men in one hilarious action scene after another. The cops and the racist sheriff show up at the end, but you can't kill The Human Tornado! A truly down-and-dirty independent movie financed by Rudy Ray Moore himself. If you enjoyed the funny tribute to Rudy Ray Moore in the movie Dolemite Is My Name (2019) starring Eddie Murphy, then you owe it to yourself to watch Dolemite (1975) and The Human Tornado (1976). Nothing beats the original Rudy Ray Moore! Also in this film keep your eyes open for a young Ernie Hudson in his first film role. Hudson would go on to star as Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters (1984) and many other great movies.
