4.0 out of 5 stars Only for fans of Ninja the Final Duel February 17, 2007
By morgoth
SHAOLIN DOLEMITE-This movie is only for a select few. If you are a fan of the Dolemite movies then be prepared to be dissapointed. On the other hand, if you liked Ninja the Final Duel distributed by Crash Cinema, you may like this movie even more. Tai actually directed 12+ hours worth of NInja Final Duel footage! Why? Probably because this is the only project he he actually had a budget for. And instead of making it a top notch production, he used all the money on film. There are 3 or 4 different versions of this, and I heard that Soulblade may put out a box set one day. One of the great things about this movie is that we actually get to see Robert Tai in action as an actor! Tai wasn't a good director(he made a couple of classics), but he was a great choreographer and can pull all of the sweet moves off himself when acting. You can tell Robert Tai's style by the way he super speeds up the film, uses insane wirework(usually bad), and uses every trick shot you could ever think of, most you wouldn't think of though. Just like Donnie Yen used undercranking as an art form in the movies he directed, Robert Tai doesn't even care if his editing looks trashy. He considers it art. While I don't see it like that, it is still a heck of a lot of fun. If you don't know who Tai is then look for the bald monk doing all the sweet animal forms 20 minutes in. He is Lo Rei's teacher in the movie.

If you are a fan of all the old school stars in this movie like Robert Tai, William Yen, Alexander Lo Rei, and Eugene Thomas, this may appeal to you. Fans of the genre may also recognize John Ladaski and Toby Russel playing the 2 Shabazz guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than most August 20, 2006
Verified Purchase
First off I'm a fan of the "over-overdubbed fu" thing. Kung Pow, Iron Fist Pillage, Prisoner of 5 Boulders, and now Shaolin Dolemite.

The humor is hit and miss.. If someone mispronouncing Tupac's name would make you chuckle, even just a bit, this is for you. If the idea of a black drunken master makes you giggle, this is for you. If you can't believe there's really a fu movie with an effeminate sword-fighting-coon-skin-cap-wearing Davey Crocket, you're going to die laughing.

If you want a serious movie, run away screaming now.

The quality of the video isn't great, but it's from an old fu movie so what can ya do.. I gave this a 5 instead of a 3 or 4 because of the very very sweet extended fight scenes, which have the original chinese dialouge without subs.. Awesome stuff.

Black Samurai cracked me up.. I won't go into detail but there's an afro and a samurai involved.. how can you lose?

Bad movie heaven!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Brothas in Blaxploitation Cinema!!!! November 18, 2005
This has to be the best film combo I've seen in ages.

The almighty Dolemite Rudy Ray Moore and Jim `Black Belt Jones' Kelly in a double feature!

Shaolin Dolemite is a great film that's played for laughs.

Rudy Ray re-wrote the dialogue so the story centers around him searching for his student Tupac(Eugene Tomas).

Along the way he encounters Ninjas,Monks,the Black Drunken Master,Sam the Spliff and the Lost tribe of Shabazz.

The film was directed by Robert Tai,one of the men resposible for the 5 Venoms films.

Black Samurai is a low budget film but very fun to watch.

Jim Kelly definitely had charisma and should have stayed away from films like this.

All I can say is that if anybody wants to get a feel of what it was like on 42nd st. or the Loop `back in the day',then sit down with some popcorn and enjoy!

Whoever thought of this movie was nuts. I consider it something someone decided to throw together at the last moment.
