Superfly Reviews

November 27, 2018
SUPERFLY turns out to not be very good. Despite boasting a director whose name screams, "TOO MUCH STYLE," the film looks generic as can be.
November 6, 2018
Profoundly sketchy, scattershot and overall unappealing in its uneven boisterous presentation, Superfly aimlessly pounds its congested chest without offering any grounded payoff in redemption or retaliation.

Like watching a two-hour trap video, this Superfly is all foreplay and zero climax. [Full Review in Spanish]

The clothes are great. The cribs are well-appointed. The fight sequences, although too few, are nicely choreographed. Yet none of it seems to coalesce into a movie.

[This remake is] in the style of one of those controversial 'gangsta rap' music videos that celebrate criminal wealth, gun violence and the sexual objectification of women. Doesn't really chime with the times, does it?
September 14, 2018
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.
September 13, 2018
An unlikable misfire of a film, with only a few decent performances on hand to make it worth your while.
September 12, 2018
The early scenes are so full of bling and macho posturing that you half suspect the film must be intended as a spoof.
September 6, 2018
The message is outdated.
August 26, 2018
Superfly wants to bank off the title of a genre classic without keeping the spirit of the genre alive. It needs more verve than gloss and more brains than bullets.
August 24, 2018
While Trevor Jackson displays an outstanding performance, SuperFly is a technically poorly constructed remake that still glorifies sex and violence.
August 9, 2018
The whole thing plays like a fancy dress parody of a crime movie, except nobody seems to be having much fun.

...super average...
July 4, 2018
As dodgy, doomed to fail remakes go, Superfly actually does a pretty good job justifying its own existence.
June 22, 2018
This Superfly is hot to look at, but it's also kind of boring, mucking up what promises to be both a tighter and a more intricate narrative.
June 22, 2018
It's simultaneously aesthetically impressive and astoundingly unappealing, shockingly straight-forward and hopelessly convoluted.
June 21, 2018
The new Superfly seems...like an embarrassing throwback.
June 21, 2018
A few sequences have a certain sting... but, for the most part, the film seems to run on autopilot.
June 20, 2018
Formulaic, barely functional action/crime/thriller - slick gangsta garbage...
June 19, 2018
There are times the new Superfly is so awful that it seems like a parody of a bad movie.
