Movie Review — Superfly (2018)

 Superfly is a very talky movie, interspersed with people shooting each other, and lots of blood blossoming on fancy white outfits. There’s not a single character to root for — everyone is corrupt, either selling drugs or profiteering off those selling the drugs.

[pullquote]There are, however, some great outfits, good hair, a fine soundtrack, and an interesting updated version of the old 1970s Blaxploitation films.[/pullquote]

I’ll say this before bed tonite: if you like the black drug culture genre, or gangster movies in general, you’ll appreciate this modern reboot and the very attractive people in it.

Brilliant idea with great information

I’ve been using RunPee for a few years now and it’s basically a requirement of going to the movies for me. The best part of course are the “pee times” that give you cues, synopses and times for when you can pee without missing the most important parts of the movie. There is also information about the credits- length, extras and if there are any extra scenes at the wayyy end. Super helpful to just know that it is or isn’t worth staying. There is a timer function that will buzz your phone when it’s a good time to pee. I also appreciate that the app is very conscientious about it being an app you use in a theater- dark background, all silent alarms etc. I will always enjoy the experience of the theater even if I could watch things at home- but I’ve even used it at home to check for things like after credit scenes or other information too.

Volunteer RunPee photographer Ola Sojobi says: “Yeah, I liked Superfly. It was a fun, action-packed gangster movie set in Atlanta, so there was the fun of an organized crime movie with an insight to Atlanta culture added on top of it. The characters were more compelling than I expected of a Superfly reboot, and the actors portrayed them well.” [pullquote position=”right”]Sojobi goes on to say, “I’m not saying it was Oscar-winning character or plot development, but overall, I think it was as good a time as one would have watching most any other gangster film.”[/pullquote]

As for me: I thought it would be campy, snappy/silly fun, and stylish. I got the stylish parts right. But it was also about a LOT of cocaine, many bricks of it, with characters snorting it, and some soft porn-ish shower sex (that’s a Peetime, if you don’t  like sex scenes, BTW), and one extremely creepy machine that one character goes into, screaming, until the nightmarish ‘suction sounds’ come on, and viscous red fluids comes snaking out, through some tubes and into a vat. I think he’s been rendered alive into various components.

My thinking: WTF did I just see?

I can’t unsee this, and it’s been literally keeping me awake for three nights now. Between my insomnia and weak stomach for violence, I want to say I hated this mean-spirited movie from start to finish.

On that, Sojobi adds,”Every gangster movie has to have at least one gnarly scene like that. Sort of like the horse head in the Godfather, maybe?”

As we try to grade movies by the target audience, I could see people approved of the rebooted Superfly. So I will give it a B-, add my violence-trigger caveats, and leave it at that. Now you get to choose. Please give this movie your poll ratings on the app.

NOTE: That blood vat torture scene is NOT a Peetime, since it’s at the very end in an R rated movie that had been uniformly violent throughout – do you think it requires a “Questionable Content Alert”, even so? That’s a new thing we are adding to the next RunPee update, out very soon.

Here are the originals of the 70s Superfly films:

RunPee Meta: 

I’ve given you 3 Peetimes: 2 have simple conversation that’s easy to sum up, and one has 5 minutes of steamy shower sex and no plot. Choose according to your interests. 

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Twisters, Fly Me To The Moon, Despicable Me 4, A Quiet Place: Day One, Inside Out 2 and coming soon, Deadpool & Wolverien, Borderlands, Alien: Romulus and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
