To be (a nasty, mean-spirited exploitation flick) or not to be (a nasty, mean-spirited exploitation flick): that is the question! "Mandingo" is pretty much a mystery of cinema on its own. Did the prominent Hollywood crew, with names like Richard... Full review

I have heard this film described as campy... I don't see it that way...I found it incredibly disturbing because i believed every bit of it. I'm no historical expert, but this had the ring of truth to me. Human nature... Full review

"Mandingo" is truly an amazing movie. One would think that this is as close you can get to actually seeing the slave-owning south on film."Mandingo" is probably lumped into the "cult/camp classic" category because this is a film no one... Full review

Boldly confrontational, the film explicitly braids the oppression of blacks and women, both victims of a culture of ownership;....the fruit of the oppressed, the baby born from Blanche's affair with Mede, is what triggers the story's tragic conclusion..... ... Full Review

historically it's mostly confused.....It's too trashy to be good drama, but too dramatic to be good trash.....Dramatically, "Mandingo" is weak and unfocused....Mandingo's" overwhelming emphasis on this aspect of slavery gives the movie the unpleasant taste of a cheap sex flick (although there's plenty of violence -- fights, vicious beatings, shootings, and the aforementioned human boiling sequence -- thrown in for good measure).....Fleischer's direction is clumsy, especially during the fight scenes.... ...
