Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore) is back and badder than ever in The Human Tornado! After being run out of town by a racist sheriff, Dolemite returns to LA only to discover that Queen Bee's (Lady Reed) club has been taken over by the mafia. On top of that they have also kidnapped two of Queen Bee's top girls! With the law hot on his tail, Dolemite rounds up the toughest Kung-Fu fighting badasses in Southern California to take on the mob, culminating in one of the craziest surprise endings in blaxploitation film history!
Wilder and more over the top than its predecessor, The Human Tornado is a non-stop assault on the senses, combining comedy, action, horror, and jaw dropping weirdness, featuring supporting performances from Ernie Hudson, Jimmy Lynch and world karate champion Howard Jackson. Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents The Human Tornado on Blu-ray, restored from original 35mm vault elements.

UNFORTUNATELY, as stated by other viewers....the DVD edition of this film omits a few scenes. Since I do not have a VHS copy of the film, I'm only aware of the shortened segment where the gang carjack a gay man for a ride (which leads to hilarity, done in a humorous style)
If someone should ever get their hands on the RIGHTS to these titles, I would love to see them restored. I've seen quite a few at retro theaters and this film as well as THE DISCO GODFATHER both appear much clearer on the big screen than these sometimes less than archival transfers.
Hilarious. Everything from RRM's sexual "interrogation" which brings down the house, to Rudy jumping down a hill top buck naked (the viewer is given a replay "So, you think I didn't JUMP??!! Well check this **** out!" ) to the comedic character acting of the sheriff just scream a blatantly ridiculous but tremendously entertaining low budget film. DARE I FORGET TO MENTION the "South American" Karate Champion who conveniently appears at the party with nunchakus??
It's so bad, it's BRILLIANT. In the spirit of entertainment there is hardly a dull moment in the film. In fact, I think it's grown on me to the point of more appreciation. Although it doesn't have the abrupt ending that DISCO GODFATHER has (which was terrifyingly hilarious) I think the fact that Rudy comes out of a set up victorious is pretty hilarious.
If you're a fan of Rudy's films this is a must have for your collection. Too bad it's not entirely complete.
*Since Rudy was alive during the rereleasing of these films, it's obviously a shame that he wasn't approached for a commentary.
-The extras are the same as all the films in the "Dolemite Collection", poorly shot and recorded on location glimpses of Rudy's remembrances.
If you are patient, these can be informative as well as entertaining. It's just a shame less attention was given to making a stellar product and review. Hell, if I were a FILM STUDENT i would have done this as part of my thesis. It's a shame Rudy hasn't gotten the respect he's due as a low budget film maker.
JAMIE FOXX..... where ARE you????????!!
(Rudy Ray Moore bio anyone?? I have ALWAYS felt that Jamie would be the PERFECT RRM.... in particular the DISCO GODFATHER opening dance)
Great nostalgic films. Great fun in a bad way.
Action, kung fu, bizarre characters, sex, romance, jokes, culture, guns, a racist sheriff who looks like Kenny Rogers in a leisure suit, its all here. I mean, any movie where the director feels inclined to mention his Zodiac sign in the credits - its a classic. I love this genre, and this is the king of of them all.
I fell out of my chair laughing at some of the scenes in this movie - the opening scene where Dolemite dives head first down the side of a hill butt naked is classic! This is Rudy Ray Moore at his best.
The plot makes little sense but who cares. If you've seen the MadTV spoofs then and see this movie, you will realize they were dead on!!
Bottom line, if you're looking for fine art, don't bother. If you're looking for cheap laughs and non-PC humor, this is your flick.
