Are you ready for the craziest, most over the top action film ever seen…from Wakaliwood, Uganda?!
Yes, ‘BAD BLACK’ is hitting L.A and it’s like nothing you have ever seen before. Entirely a work of love, sweat and tears, it’s the showcase for the cinema of Isaac Nawibana, the most prolific filmmaker ever to emerge from Uganda.
Bolstered by a love of action movies and a can-do attitude, Isaac and his motley crew go to extraordinary lengths to create the best action movies known to mankind: from carving guns & ammo pouches out-of-wood to learning Kung-fu by copying ALL the moves from Bruce Lee films, these men pull out all stops to create wall-to-wall insanity and the effect is hypnotizing.
Like the best of 80’s Hollywood, ‘Bad Black’ features almost every action move trope expected: from heists to car chases, to exploding helicopters and long bouts of hand-to-hand combat, this is the film that makes you realize how painfully lame mainstream action films look compared to the wild, vivid and wonderful world of Wakaliwood.
But don’t take our word for it! Come to the Egyptian and join a room full of people ready to have their mind blown & their vision changed; you might find yourself booking a flight to Wakaliwood on the next plane soon after the credits roll. (Evrim Ersoy)
