Outlaw Johnny Black Movie Review

Outlaw Johnny Black, a western/comedy, is a movie that was in the works for years.

It started off as a crowdfunded movie (I unfortunately lost money on this deal.  I preordered a signed Blu Ray and never received it and never got refunded.) and it took years to be released.

But ultimately, on September 15 of 2023, Outlaw Johnny Black was released in theaters and not too long after that home video.

Because I lost money on participating in the crowd funding, I avoided watching this movie for a long time because even though I was excited about it long before it was released, the fact I lost money soured me on it quite a bit.

However, I finally did watch it (I bought the DVD for a much less price than what I lost on the preorder.) and I can say I enjoyed it.

The movie stars Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Blood And Bone, Never Back Down 2 and 3, The Dark Knight, Universal Soldier and Universal Soldier:  The Return and many more), who also co-wrote and directed it.

He plays the title character, a outlaw bent on avenging the death of his father.  He also ends up posing as a preacher in a small town, in which he ends up helping the town against a crooked land baron.

The cast also includes Byron Minns, Anika Noni Rose, Erica AshTommy Davidson, Barry Bostwick, and many more, including a few cool cameos by Michael Madsen, Jim Brown, and Fred Williamson.

It’s a fun western/comedy with some cool, fun action in it.

I really love the scenes where Michael is posing as a preacher.

At one point, he does a sermon and often says “turn it loose!!”.  You have to see it.

Again, even though I lost money on participating in a crowd fund, I did ultimately enjoy this movie and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a fun western/comedy.

I’m a big Michael Jai White fan and he definitely delivered another winner here.

To quote Outlaw Johnny Black “Turn it loose!!!  Turn it loose”.
