Superfly is a remix of the iconic film that defined a genre through its characters, look, sound and feel. Told through the artistic lens of visionary, Director X, this newest take is set to a soundtrack curated by Future and modernized in the city of Atlanta. An action-packed film that follows Youngblood Priest (Trevor Jackson) as he attempts to achieve his “American Dream” all while redefining The Hustle.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.

Blaxploitation remake is a mixed bag; drugs, sex, swearing.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that SuperFly is an uneven remake of the 1972 "blaxploitation" classic; both movies tell the story of a career drug dealer (Trevor Jackson) who's trying to get out and make a clean break. Lots of cocaine is shown, and characters occasionally snort it. There's also social smoking and drinking/getting drunk. Violence includes guns and shooting; several supporting/minor characters are shot and killed, and blood spurts are shown. Expect to see martial arts fighting, punching, and beating/bludgeoning, too, as well as a car chase and an explosion. The main character has two girlfriends (who know about each other), as do other characters; one scene shows a graphic threesome. Women are seen topless, and strip club costumes leave very little to the imagination. Language is extremely strong and frequent, with constant uses of "f--k," "motherf----r," the "N" word, "s--t," and more.
