No Capes Here
Abar, The First Black Superman (1977)
Dir - Frank Packard
I honestly don't remember too much about this one. That's what I get for waiting weeks before entering it in this blog. Sigh.
However, there is some pretty atrocious acting (especially with the kids) and there is little-to-no attempt at masking the "message" of the film. Two outstanding moments have to do with one of the kids calling the other a "watusi wobbler", whatever the fuck that is, and the other is the shocking revelation at the very end of the film. Speechless.
