Meet the Blacks movie full length review - The annual dirge......
Every once in a while we have a movie that thinks its a comedy because we have a cast of characters being abhorrently racist to one another, because we all know, racism is hilarious!!! Especially when it's the same ethnicity doing it to one another....
After obtaining a great deal of money, the patriarch of a black family decides they should move from Chicago to a posh neighbourhood in Beverly Hills.
However, they are soon terrorised by home intruders who want them out of the affluent community.......
Trying to be a spoof of The Purge movies, the film is one of the poorest films of the year, going back to the dark ages of British seventies sitcom by just throwing every racist joke and innuendo at the screen and hope that everyone gets a laugh, because it's self deprecating because we are doing it to one another.
And it's totally rubbish, from the opening credits right until the promise of a sequel, nothing whatsoever raises more than eyebrows in disbelief.
Epps plays your Atypical stereotype by shouting really loud, swearing every second, and saying a racial slur about every minute. Epps, you should be ashamed of yourself, this stuff was getting old when Bob Hoskins had a problem having Denzel Washingtons Heart in Heart Condition (and that's 26 years ago).
Otherwise, it's just an incoherent mess, we have different people arrive into the house every five minutes trying to kill the titular family because the patriarch is nothing more than a poisonous thief, who has basically ripped off everyone he has ever met.
And he's our protagonist!!
When a film is struggling, they have to reference a topical film series, and with everything that is happening in the world at the minute, The Purge films are prime rib.
So the one homage we have of the original Purge isn't effective, nor funny, and guess what, it ends with a racist slur!!!
It's this sort of film that pulls cinema back ten years, Snoop Dogg should stay away from films. Yes, he was mildly diverting in Starsky & Hutch, but this is worse than Soul Plane.
Avoid like the plague.
It's racist filth and should never have seen the light of day.
