June 12, 2018
A bizarrely watchable and often funny confluence of thug life and B-movie campiness.
June 12, 2018
[A] grungy, fairly entertaining remake...
June 12, 2018
Superfly is a visual treat that embellishes Director X's signature kaleidoscopic visuals with an uncanny knack for storytelling.
June 12, 2018
The nuance-free script, by Alex Tse, sometimes results in an unintentional laugh, but the film overall is more entertaining than not.
June 12, 2018
Lacking the grit and shock factor of the original, this version is just corny and dated.
June 12, 2018
In the end, it feels as if both Superfly and the audience got their money's worth.
June 12, 2018
You never lose track of where Priest is trying to go, or why he's trying to get there.
June 12, 2018
Director X nods to the original movie but also smartly insists on finding more within its violently pursued "American Dream" narrative.
June 12, 2018
A delightful surprise: funny, brutal, stylish, and thoughtful. It updates the blaxploitation genre with wit and resonance.
June 12, 2018
Extravagance acts as its own currency in the stunt-or-be-stunted-upon culture Youngblood vows to fight his way out of, and X fits right in with his penchant for overflowing aesthetic opulence.
June 12, 2018
A stale remake with nothing new to say.
June 12, 2018
A competent yet glossy and hermetic street-hustle drug thriller, less a new urban myth than a lavishly concocted episode. It holds your attention yet leaves you with nothing.
June 12, 2018
In this film's 21st-century Atlanta, "The Man" never really manifests. Greed and corruption are themselves the magnetic fields that pull together would-be players - white, Latino and African-American.
