- MOVIE REVIEW : ‘Meteor Man’ Quickly Flames Out;
All Rights Reserved. Cancel Submit. This was in Baltimore, where pretty much every black movie did well. Still, I remember being surprised to learn that the movie was considered a flop. After years of struggling as an actor and a stand-up comic, he made Hollywood Shuffle , a meta-movie about the struggles of being a black actor and attempting to make it.
Townsend co-wrote the movie, directed it, produced it, and starred in it, and its cast included future In Living Color creator Keenen Ivory Wayans. That same year, Townsend scored the fluke success of directing the Eddie Murphy stand-up movie Raw.
Townsend must have called in every favor imaginable to make the movie. An unreleased Michael Jackson song plays over the opening credits. Big Daddy Kane, as far as I could tell, only gets one line in the whole movie, but he lurks silently in the background of a lot of scenes.https://holhandchanapcu.ga
The Meteor Man
And I should warn you that Bill Cosby is also in way too much of the movie, playing a silent and angelic homeless man who also gets meteor powers. Townsend, playing substitute teacher and jazz musician Jefferson Reed, gets his powers when a glowing green meteor randomly hits him in a Washington, D. He can touch a book and immediately know everything in it, but only for 30 seconds. He can communicate with dogs. In one deeply strange moment, he clears out a vacant lot, plunges his hands into the dirt, and magically turns it into verdant farmland. Then he breathes misty white something into the air and makes it rain, and giant vegetables grow.
He only uses it the once. The meteor changed your molecular cell structure. There are some moments I like. Reed is scared of heights, so, as Meteor Man, he just flies about three feet from the ground. But most of the jokes are hacky sitcom things. And Townsend undercuts these with even more hackneyed moments of solemnity. Write a Review. The Meteor Man 2. I thought it was great, and then I saw it twelve years later. It kind of sucks, not funny at all, very corney humor, and the plot is terrible, and the "Golden Lords" come on man, gimme a break.
What topped it all was the way the meteor hits Robert Townsend's character!
Dee D. Jackson – Meteor Man Lyrics | Genius Lyrics
Instead of crashing to the groud like a normal meteor would, it chases him down an alley I'm sure this has happened a few times before. It's only every once in a while that a man coming home in the middle of the night gets chased down an alley by a meteor. This movie sucked. That's a tricky metaphore, so let me explain. Robert Townsend's movies tend to be the shuck and jive movies that ''hollywood'' likes and tends to view as entertaining, and thus got greenlighted.
Although, most Townsend movies can be viewed as offending to the politically correct,they're still funny and Meteor Man is about as funny as they get.

It's not as offensive as Hollywood Shuffle, and it demonstrates the methodic calculation of a director slowly snatching a position in hollywood ,as a black filmaker by the best means As for the movie itself But more importantly , it features an exceptional story line and is supported by an ensemble of fine established actors as well as rising ones.
I believe this is a landmark film and even though some of it has cliche aspects, I recommend it.
