Well, I can't say I've ever read that much into Blackjack. :lol:

Me neither, but it's interesting to have a new point of view on the movie (and not too much tongue-in-cheek).

I have not seen Blackjack in a looong time so I can’t say either way when it comes to this analysis.
Interesting none the less.
Does he say the movie is ”Gay” by design. That the writer intended Jack as a gay man? Or did I misunderstand?

I have always thought that the action genre in general is beaming with gayness, with it’s worship of the naked, ripped, oiled male body. At the same time going above and beyond in portraying it’s protagonists as ultra straight and macho ofcourse.
