Best that can be said for this quickie is its unpretentiousness in not seeking any pseudo-sociological meaning or theme, or assuming any airs that one is supposed to be enriched or provoked by it all. It’s strictly action-adventure, alternating, like clockwork, drugs-sex-violence for its duration with hardly a plot line to hold it together.
Cast handles the simple characterizations adequately, with Ron O’Neal heading as Superfly, sluggin’, lovin’, needlin’ and philosophizing his way through the tale of the pusher with heart of gold, wanting to get out – but only after making his easy $1 million. Supporting convincingly are Carl Lee, Julius W. Harris as Scatter and Charles McGregor as Fat Freddie.
Sheila Frazier and Polly Niles offer the sex interests, including a breast or two when things get otherwise dull.
