Director X's Superfly is supposedly a remake of the 1972 Blaxploitation hit Super Fly, but frequently seems to be more like the work of one of its producers, Joel Silver (the Lethal Weapon movies, Roadhouse, The Matrix, Swordfish, et, al.), who, in the '80s and '90s provided moviegoers a steady supply of explosions, gunplay and female nudity.
