Michael Jai White’s impact on the Blaxploitation genre with “Black Dynamite” in 2009 is still felt, and now he dives into Spaghetti Westerns with “Outlaw Johnny Black.” This comedy, centered on the revenge mission of gunslinger Johnny Black, skillfully blends humor, martial arts, and Western tropes. Although the humor is more subdued compared to White’s earlier work, “Outlaw Johnny Black” compensates with its well-crafted narrative, sincere filmmaking, and tight choreography. White cements his standing in the realm of Black-helmed Westerns, joining the ranks of industry legends like Poitier and Van Peebles. The film offers a refreshing take on the Western hero, making it a noteworthy and entertaining addition to the limited pool of Black-helmed Western films. Visit 02tvseries for more!
