Superfly (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Superfly 2018 is a hot mess of a film. A remake of the cult 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly, the film tells a familiar story of a Cocaine kingpin realising that it’s time to get out of the game after surviving a violent attack from a crazed rival. What the film lacks is the insatiable cool of the 1972 original. That down and dirty blaxploitation attitude is more than just a few guys using the N word a lot – which is very much the approach taken here. There’s a few nice bits and Jackson does his best but overall this film lacks that special something to make it more than a time passer.
Best Bit: Trevor Jackson does his best
