See \"Gordon\" from SESAME STREET playing a pimp!!!!
This film is brought to you by the letter "P". Kids, let's think of
some words that start with "P",...
In probably the weirdest case of casting I can think of, Roscoe Orman
plays the title character--who is a pimp! Years later, Orman would
achieve some notoriety playing "Gordon" on SESAME STREET--now THAT'S
interesting casting!! Seeing this 70s "super-pimp" all decked out in
furs and pimp costume is very, very surreal--especially with the
amazingly over-the-top style and language and crazy pimp-mobiles! Now,
although Willie is on top of his game, his world begins to crumble when
an ex-hooker turned social worker decides that enough is enough. She
encourages the prostitutes to dump this jerk and either go into
business for themselves or try something legitimate. Willie responds by
threatening the lady. She decides to declare war on Willie and things
look really, really bad for the pimp-meister.
However, when things go worst for Willie, the movie takes a very, very
strange twist with the social worker--one that rather blindsided me.
While not at all believable, it was certainly an interesting twist.
While this is a so-called "blaxploitation" film in many ways
(especially due to the lead being a pimp), the film is much different
than you'd expect. First, it's story is stronger than the genre--with
some complexity. Second, the film isn't all "black and white" with
cartoon-like characters and silly stereotypes. The cop who hates Willie
the most is a Black cop who's a Muslim. Third, the film lacks the
nudity and hard edge you'd normally see. And finally, the story doesn't
seem either anti-White or glorify evil by the time it's finished--and
as such, is a much more three dimensional film that's worth a look.
Needless to say, this film that, at times, glamorizes pimps may seem
like the ultimate misogynistic film, but stick with it. Rabid feminists
probably should not watch this film or they'll suffer a stroke, but if
they'd bear with it, by the end it does have a positive message and is
not a "pro-pimp" film like THE MACK!!!.

Richard Roundtree kicks butt in Shaft. Willie Dynamite is blaxploitation at it's best..

Superfly was and will always be a "Cult Classic" movie. It chronicles the days and ways of a coke dealer and his boy trying to get out of the game. Action packed and will keep you sitting down..

Truly a classic of the so-called "blaxploitation" films....
Not your average pimp film.
Willie Dynamite is most certainly one of the most flamboyant pimps to
grace the screen and his "stable" of beautiful women are frequently
clad, but don't let the smooth taste fool you, Willie Dynamite is not
average pimp film.
"Willie Dynamite" was at times thought-provoking, frequently intense and
entertaining throughout. Watching Willie Dynamite fall from pimp grace
for some interesting drama.
Roscoe Orman is great as the fallen pimp and Diana Sands is brilliant as
always but there is much to be said about the performance of the young
Walker, Willie's newest and most inexperienced 'treat'. This film's motto
seems to be 'even an old dog can learn new tricks' as each of the main
characters undergo some form of transformation before the credits start
