Critic Reviews for Bodied

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (7)

"Bodied" isn't for the easily offended, it'll make you squirm, and it's a total banger best seen with a crowd.

June 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Offers an entertaining window into a culture that most people probably know very little about, but it's also a clever take on a generation more aware of what's offensive and what's not than any before.

"Bodied" doesn't come to any hard conclusions, but suggests that the ultimate cathartic power of rap comes from its ability to be an equal-opportunity offender.

Top Critic

An outrageous and outrageously entertaining treatise on cultural sensitivity.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Loosely a battle-rap All About Eve, but it's so thickly packed with technical and verbal dazzle that whatever biting point it might have had to make ends up completely lost.

September 9, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

If the movie runs long in places, the vibrant performances from Worthy and the rest of the cast help push things ahead, and there are enough dynamo battles from start to finish to keep hungry rap fans satisfied.
