“They shootin! They shootin! Mama they shootin!” I’m Gonna Git You Sucka is a laugh fest and an homage to blaxploitation movies of the past. It stars Keenan Ivory Wayans as Jack Spade, an ex-marine just home from the military after his brother Junebug was murdered by the infamous Mr. Big (John Vernon). Jack sets out to get revenge on Mr. Big and rid the urban streets of the mass amount of gold chains that are killing the youth. Jack needs help and tries to convince retired 1970′s era black vigilantes John Slade (Bernie Casey) and his posse to strap on their ass whippin boots one more time and rid the inner city of Mr. Big and his henchmen once and for all.
Keenan Ivory Wayans’ comedic writing is put to work in this hilarious blaxploitation spoof. Wayans’ brother Damon Wayans (Leonard) and Kadeem Hardison (Willie) add to the excellent comedic timing of this film as Mr Big’s main thugs. Blaxploitation and NFL legend Jim Brown (Slammer) and music legend Isaac Hayes (Slammer) gives you that true 70′s black film star power. This cast is filled with the cream of the crop of popular black comedians and actors from the 70′s and 80′s. Before the rise of Will Smith and Denzel Washington, black star power was by committee. I’m Gonna Git You Sucka is the ultimate homage to low budget, all black movies from the 70′s and what made them more funny than serious. What makes this movie isn’t its cast but how sensible the script was to the subject of blaxploitation films in general.
There is no other blaxploitation comic spoof that comes closer to capturing the 70′s magic of these films like I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. Timeless characters like Fly Guy (Antonio Fargas) and Kung-Fu Joe (Steve James) are unforgettable. If you are a fan of 70′s films and raw urban comedy, then this is definitely the movie for you.
