With its thorny themes and aggressive humor, Bodied dares to offend - and justifies its approach with a subversive comedy that edifies as it entertains.

It's neither a rewarding drama nor a substantial set of ideas, but its implications and by-products, suggestions and overtones are far more enjoyable to contemplate than the movie is to experience.
Bodied is uneven, but it has the fire where it counts.
Bodied is a deliriously rude provocation, maybe the most daring race-related movie since Spike Lee's Bamboozled.
Along the way, there are good laughs, brain-rattling battles... and the kind of incisive social commentary that actually surprises with its targets and revelations.
We tip our caps to Kahn & Co.'s underdog story. But satire-wise, there's some killer bars left on the killing floor here.
It's juvenile. It's irritating. Yet it's also fiendishly clever in the way it anticipates and dismantles every argument that could be made against it, and how it sneakily affirms the power of the words it slings around so freely.
Bodied covers its bases with a certain self-awareness, heading viewers off before they can cry foul.
Bodied is probably not for most audiences, but those who like their humor to be both crude and knowing will likely have as much fun watching it as I did.
Lighthearted fare with a provocative edge.
The hyper-stylized world [Joseph] Kahn creates has an artistry that barrels its way into the social consciousness in a manner that few films would ever attempt.
It's shaggy, overlong, and sometimes tough to take, but ultimately if one can listen or read between the bars being spit, Bodied is smart and worthwhile viewing.
The insightful and immersive film manages to both salute the artistry of battle rappers and satirize the hypocritical culture that sustains their livelihood.
