Syreena (Trina Parks) leads an all-female. all-black biker gang (who roam the streets on motorized thricycles), and they are always on the run from the cops and the Ku Klux Klan alike - but this time around, Syreena has come to town with a mission, to find her missing mother Cinderella (Frances E.Nealy), who has run an abortion program for black women until she just vanished into thin air. Doing some investigation, sometimes helped by her kung fu savvy brother Flash (Gene Simms), Syreena stumbles upon a plot to abduct prominent black people from all over the town, and one name comes up time and again, that of Commander Cross (Norman Bartold), a self-proclaimed black people's friend who's really a white supremacist backing the Ku Klux Klan.

He manages to capture Syreena though and can't help but gloating about his plan: To use a cloning machine to replace all black leaders with replicas more sympathetic to his cause. But since Cross has black servants, they instinctively side with Syreena and help her escape - and she comes back not only with her gang but with a whole army of blacks, and they conquer Cross's estate like nobody's business and also free Syreena's mum. And in the end, everybody is witnessing the birth of the first and last clone Cross's machine will ever produce: Cross himself. And since Cross the clone is nicer than the real Cross, they have the real one tarred and feathered and party with the clone.


Admittedly, this synopsis doesn't sound like much, just like a rather typical blaxploitation flick with elements from the biker and science fiction genre thrown in just for good measure - but then again, the mere plotline as such doesn't even begin to describe this piece of utter wackiness that is full of bizarre, almost surreal costumes, where people tend to break out into song-and-dance routines at the least fitting moments, where slapstick is used to bring racial agendas across, and where action scenes are more inspired by popular vintage cartoons and the Keystone Cops than by genre standards of the 1970's. That said, Darktown Strutters most certainly has its shortcomings, especially some of the humour misfires horribly, but that does not make it any less of a very unusual viewing experience, and most certainly the weirdest blaxploitation ever committed to film.
