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

Critic Reviews for Superfly
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.
"Superfly" escapes superficiality thanks largely to strong performances from Jackson; Jason Mitchell as Priest's workmanlike partner, Eddie, and Michael Kenneth Williams as Priest's mentor, Scatter.
A more seasoned director of narrative features might've figured of how to sustain these high points. But Lutz careens among tones like a chromed-out Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado that's had its brake lines cut.
