Eddie Griffin plays Undercover Brother, an agent for justice who just is... but soon joins the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. on a mission to take down The Man, but mostly his strange main henchman Mr. Feather (Chris Kattan), for a limited time assisted by White She Devil (Denise Richards), and with some good help from Sistah Girl (Aunjanue Ellis).
Dave Chappelle and Chi McBride are there too, as well as the one white guy in the group - Neil Patrick Harris.
I recognized a lot of faces but not all their names. It's a good cast, good fun, and good vibes! Also plenty reminiscent of the old era of Afro Power movies... or whatever they were called. Blaxploitation, apparently. Shaft, Coffy... you know. I still have many of those to catch up on. If they're anywhere near as good as this was I really ought to see 'em all!
There's action, fist fights, chase, comedy, solid skillsets, ladies, you know: the expected elements.
I think I've seen this movie before, but it was great this time around too. Silly but never stupid, clever and flimsy and good fun. And it's got a message, ya dig? Fo shizzle. Solid watch.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
