Ron O'Neal Is supported by a good but uneven cast. There is a great deal of overacting. Acting on film requires a subtlety that, give experience, these new faces will soon master. But Parks' first effort is almost actor-proof and is well worth a trip.

Among the early and most sacred films in the Blacksploitation cannon, 1972's Super Fly is a towering pillar in many circles.

The moral ambiguity of the film may disturb some viewers, but the film smacks of realistic grit throughout.

One of the most successful of the early '70s blaxploitation cycle.

Super Fly, one of the most significant blaxploitation films ever made, is as fascinatingly entertaining as it is ethically wrongheaded.

O'Neal functioned as a suave but deadly post-Poitier antihero for an increasingly militant urban audience...

The likes of 'Pusherman' and 'Freddie's Dead' provide the film with heart and depth that would otherwise be absent.
