What to know

critics consensus

Superfly updates the blaxploitation original with a stylish remake that's exciting and visually arresting enough to offer its own slickly staged action rewards, but disappointingly short on social subtext. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Superfly

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (41) | Fresh (52) | Rotten (50)

  • The clothes are great. The cribs are well-appointed. The fight sequences, although too few, are nicely choreographed. Yet none of it seems to coalesce into a movie.

    September 18, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Director X...can't seem to differentiate between the strip-club aesthetics of a rap video and the demands of a full-length feature film.

    September 14, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • An unlikable misfire of a film, with only a few decent performances on hand to make it worth your while.

    September 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The early scenes are so full of bling and macho posturing that you half suspect the film must be intended as a spoof.

    September 12, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The whole thing plays like a fancy dress parody of a crime movie, except nobody seems to be having much fun.

    August 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The new Superfly seems...like an embarrassing throwback.

    June 21, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
