Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon.

An entertaining biopic, with a fair portion of the film like a behind the scenes look into how 'Dolemite' was made. It's fairly inspiring as Rudy Ray Moore/Dolemite never gave up despite a number of setbacks. Eddie doesn't look much like Dolemite and is naturally more comedic and charming. He does a good job but it's not the closest likeness you'll find in a biopic. I was asking myself as I was watching this if Dolemite was really the great guy that he was being painted as? Maybe he was but it seemed too good to be true at times. He did steal jokes and basically his persona from a homeless guy. I expected that to come back on him at one stage but never does. While it is entertaining, the main problem I had with it, and what stops it receiving a higher rating from me is the comedy. I rarely found Dolemite's act or jokes humorous and the laughing from the audience was over the top.
