...about the dead-end despair of ghetto life, where the false independence of a criminal enterprise is really just another form of enslavement.

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.

Classic blaxlpoitation film is still one of the best to come out of the genre. O'Neal gives a fine (but always funky) performance in one of the last movies before the genre ate itself and became self-parody. Terrific soudtrack.

This is a quintessential blaxploitation film. And it's fun as hell to watch.
