Superfly (2018) - Rotten Tomatoes

Superfly (2018)



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

Critic Reviews for Superfly

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (28)

For all its pulpy, genre-movie intentions, SuperFly is virtually crippled by its own ludicrousness.

It's really stylish and has great gloss and energy about it...This definitely has the look and a lot of the very knowing trappings of music video culture.

"Superfly" escapes superficiality thanks largely to strong performances from Jackson; Jason Mitchell as Priest's workmanlike partner, Eddie, and Michael Kenneth Williams as Priest's mentor, Scatter.

A more seasoned director of narrative features might've figured of how to sustain these high points. But Lutz careens among tones like a chromed-out Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado that's had its brake lines cut.

Superfly has a long way to go to be considered a great movie, but it's not a particularly bad one, either.

The new Superfly isn't a great work of artistry or of cheap thrills - it's so in between it's practically bourgeois - but in the swagger department, it just squeaks by.
