3.0 out of 5 stars Dodgy Film Saved By Brilliant Soundtrack But Still A Classic, 24 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Superfly [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Ron O'Neal is Superfly, A ghetto king, A respected member of New York Black comunity.
The plot is simple, Priest (Ron O'Neal) is sick of his lifestyle and the ghetto, realising he knows nothing but how to dress well and sell drugs, He decides to make one big score so he can leave forever. The only thing stopping him doing this are some corrupt cops who want to keep him where he is and working for them.
It's a typical Blaxplotation film of the times, made to appeal to the ghetto audiences by portraying the dealers as the Good guys and the Police as the bad guys. The plots weak and the acting isn't as good as a lot of the films around at the time, but it still has merit if only for Priest's car, wardrobe and finally Curtis Mayfield singing "Pusherman" live in Bar in one the scenes. In fact thats what really saves this movie, the soundtrack. It turned the movie from OK to a an absolute Classic, and a must have in a blaxplotation collection.
