Black Jesus
A Congo rebel leader is captured and imprisoned with two white felons in this feature deep with religious symbolism and condemnation of colonial exploitation. Maurice Lalubi (Woody Strode) is thrown in jail with a soldier and an Italian thief. The trio endures torture at the hands of their captors, while a newly formed military regime decides the fate of the insurgent. His imminent demise could turn him into a martyr and spell trouble for the new government dictator in this sometimes violent film. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
