Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: RZA's direction lacks visual personality, but he keeps the narrative moving and elicits strong performances from his cast.
Rotten: Coco and Mahlik's scenes are the only ones that seem to take place on earth. Everything else is from some Maya Angelou-inspired Mars.
Rotten: With a plot as predictable as a haiku, RZA and screenwriter Nicole Jefferson Asher would have done better to embrace the strangeness.
Fresh: Despite its frequently clunky dramaturgy, the film makes some interesting points while providing an excellent showcase for Banks' considerable onscreen charisma.
Azealia Banks can’t act.
Oh yup Azealia
