Michael Jai White revitalized the Blaxploitation genre in 2009 with “Black Dynamite,” and his latest venture, “Outlaw Johnny Black,” brings his flair to Spaghetti Westerns. This comedy delivers a well-crafted, funny narrative as Johnny Black seeks revenge against Outlaw Brett Clayton. While the film’s humor is more subdued than its predecessor, White’s filmmaking shines with tight choreography and a mature focus on character. “Outlaw Johnny Black” becomes a standout entry in the limited roster of Black-helmed Westerns, positioning White as a key figure alongside Poitier and Van Peebles. With a fresh take on the Western hero archetype, White offers a compelling and entertaining film for a new generation. Visit afdah 2 for more!
