Synopsis

Career criminal Youngblood Priest wants out of the Atlanta drug scene, but as he ramps up sales, one little slip-up threatens to bring the whole operation down before he can make his exit.


Movie Message

SuperFly is a remake of the original 1972 film (with a New York backdrop) modernized in an attempt to appeal to today’s young, urban, hip-hop audiences. The new adaptation moves south to Atlanta, Georgia, where Priest (Trevor Jackson), a young, suave and debonair drug dealer, heads his operation. SuperFly opens with heavy profanity laced music with scantily clad women dancing in a club, and this is where Priest shows his cunning and wit as he shakes down a dealer who owes him money.

Priest and his crew use a strip club that he runs as a fence for dealing drugs and backroom gambling, as well as a furniture store. Priest’s crew and drug dealing operation do so off the grid, drawing no attention from law enforcement. After leaving the club one night, Priest has an altercation with a rival member of another drug-dealing crew, where he is almost shot and killed. Priest then comes to the realization that it is time for him to get out of the business. He and his right-hand man Eddie (Jason Mitchell) plot to make enough money to get out for good. In doing so, they have to double-cross Priest’s mentor and supplier, Scatter (Michael Keith Williams), by going to Mexico behind Scatter’s back to connect directly with the cartel that provides their product.

The remainder of the film twists and turns unfolding Priest’s plot to get out of the drug game for good, leaving a trail of bodies along the way.

The Dove Take:

This film has heavy elements of profanity, drug sales/usage, nudity, threesome sex, oral sex while driving a car, gambling, shooting, murder, corrupt police/government officials, and many more elements that are not desirable. If one would like to keep his/her eyes and ears pure, this film is not recommended. As a result, Dove does not approve SuperFly.
