TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Superfly

All Critics (101) | Top Critics (34)

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…

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…

For all its tossed-off flash, "Superfly" goes beyond the mere intricacy of its audacious plotting to suggest the cruelty, the horror, and the deceit at the heart of the American body politic.

June 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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