Critics Consensus

Superfly updates the blaxploitation original with a stylish remake that's exciting and visually arresting enough to offer its own slickly staged action rewards, but disappointingly short on social subtext.

  • Director X...can't seem to differentiate between the strip-club aesthetics of a rap video and the demands of a full-length feature film.

  • The whole thing plays like a fancy dress parody of a crime movie, except nobody seems to be having much fun.

  • The new Superfly an embarrassing throwback.

  • For all its tossed-off flash, "Superfly" goes beyond the mere intricacy of its audacious plotting to suggest the cruelty, the horror, and the deceit at the heart of the American body politic.

  • For all its pulpy, genre-movie intentions, SuperFly is virtually crippled by its own ludicrousness.

  • It's really stylish and has great gloss and energy about it...This definitely has the look and a lot of the very knowing trappings of music video culture.
