Critic Reviews for Supremacy

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (8)

  • Feeding over-the-top language to underdeveloped characters, Deon Taylor's "Supremacy" dramatizes racism with an unvarying intensity that quickly becomes wearing.

    January 29, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The film plays out almost like a conventional Hollywood hostage thriller but for the incendiary, racially charged subtext.

    January 29, 2015 | Full Review…
  • It's so grueling an ordeal that its revelations barely penetrate the murk.

    January 29, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • [A] dour, dreary drama ...

    January 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Director Deon Taylor explores the dividing lines of race, family and the hate that fuels those lines, with an intensity that at times is almost overwhelming with explosive emotion...Powerful. Emotionally charged. Riveting. Masterful.

    December 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Deon Taylor's surprisingly resonant and deceptively deep film Supremacy comes at you with a hammer and ends up filleting you with a scalpel.

    Joe Anderson is a talented, handsome actor but he can't save this muddled thriller devoid of insight and plagued with ridiculous dialogue, and even the use of flashbacks along the movie is amateurish in the way that it tries - and fails - to gradually shape the character's motivations.

    Some stories are so far fetched, that they couldn't possibly be anything but a true story. Supremacy is one of those films that is ripped from the headlines, telling the incredible true story of Garrett Tully, a white supremacist who was out of jail for less than twenty-four hours. Tully (Joe Anderson) was released on parole, after spending most of his life behind bars. He was on his way back to the white supremacist strong hold he called home, when he and his girlfriend are stopped by a policeman, a black policeman. It doesn't take long for Tully to jump out of the car and kill the officer, before going on the run. The pair makes their way to a suburban area, where they break into a house and take a black family hostage. Aside from the obvious tension of a hostage situation, there is also extreme racial tension, that makes the whole situation that much harder for the people involved. As events play out, something miraculous starts to occur as Tully, starts to sympathize with his hostages. Danny Glover stars as The homeowner, Mr. Walker, and was beyond phenomenal. Glover excels in films that involve race, because he has this quiet simple way about getting his message across. He's never over the top or in your face about it, he's just a simple man who states the truth, something most people easily relate to. Aside from Glover's performance and the obvious question about what's going to happen, this film was a dud. There is a lot of waiting around, racial slurs, and arguing before we get any answers we seek. Supremacy is basically a film you start to watch, and would like to turn off, but you can't until you find out what happens. My advice, Danny Glover has plenty of other similar significant roles under his belt, and you'd save a lot of time and frustration by simply googling Garrett Tully.
