Keenen Ivory Wayans writes, directs and stars in this comedy spoof. Ex-soldier Jack Spade (Wayans) returns home to his old neighbourhood after his brother Junebug dies from an overdose of gold chains. When he finds that the crime lord Mr. Big (John Vernon) is the man behind it all, the wannabe hero vows to avenge his brother's death and joins forces with ghetto heroes John Slade (Bernie Casey), Hammer (Isaac Hayes) and Slammer (Jim Brown) to bring justice where justice is needed most.
I'm Gonna Git You Sucka comes from Keenan Ivory Wayans--the man who brought us Jim Carrey (initially just one of the bunch on Wayans' US television comedy-sketch show, In Living Color)-- and is a comedy spoof on the blaxploitation films of the 1970s. Wayans plays Jack Spade, an army private just returning from the service. He comes home to find his younger brother June Bug dead of an overdose of gold chains (an "OG") He vows revenge, and with the help of some of the neighbourhood's old-skool heroes including Flyguy (Antonio Fargas), Kung Fu Joe (Steve James), Hammer (Isaac Hayes), Slammer (football star Jim Brown) and John Slade (Bernie Casey), Spade wages a war against Mr Big, the neighbourhood crime lord. In the tradition of Airplane! and Naked Gun, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka pokes fun through satire and offensive comedy. The film also features appearances from such varied actors as Clarence Williams III, Eve Plumb (better known to most as Jan Brady), and Chris Rock as a rib-joint customer. --Shannon Gee, Amazon.com

The spoofing of these genre elements show how far black Americans have come in cinema, but also highlights the past in a way which forces the reader to accept that this is the way things were.
Starring a huge list of Blaxploitation stars such as Jim Brown, Isaac Hayes (whom composed the theme to Shaft, and won an Oscar in the process) and Antonio Fargas, one could not hope for a more star studded cast. Following the exploits of a soldier who arrives home after his brother is killed by an overdose of gold chains ((called an OG), the protagonist fights 'The Man' (a middle class white male) and his gang with the help of previous crime fighters.
This film is hilarious as long as you have some knowledge of the genre. Even if you don't, pick a copy up! You will NOT be disappointed.
If you have a sense of humour and are partial to bad action films, you must watch this. If you like the idea of gangster chique and bling being sent-up in true style, again this is a must. At a time when all 'action-figure actors'are taking themselves way too seriously, a follow up to this would be most welcome.
Jack declares war on Mr. Big, powerful local crimelord. His army is led by John Slade, his childhood idol who used to fight bad guys in the 70s......
Its a spoof of the blaxploitation genre of the seventies, and has the added bonus of most of the stars from the genre, and the makers obviously love the material that they are lampooning.
But time has tainted this movie. Seeing through the eyes of an 11 year when first released, it was a fun movie, gigantic toes, woman taking body parts off, and a white man controlling the ghetto, it was genius.
Now watching it, I look at Wayans, and think that he's the on responsible for the slew of really poor spoofs that have hit our screen screen since Scary Movie back in 2000, and there have been too many.
Don't get me wrong, there are a few good moments, but it doesn't hold up now like it did back then, and it feels really old, just like the jokes.
But kudos to the makers for making this, and getting the most important people from the genre involved, save for around tree and Grier.
Way past its sell by date.
