They Cloned Tyrone (2023) Movie Review

by | Aug 5, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

They Cloned Tyrone is inventive and twisted science fiction that balances huge laughs with sociopolitical commentary centered around the black community! When I tell that you that I keep waiting for Netflix to surprise me, this is exactly the kind of proactive and expertly crafted film I was talking about. Director and co-writer Juel Taylor (writer of Creed II and Space Jam: A New Legacy) has tapped into a Spike Lee vein that’s fueled by genuine conversations about race, oppression, overcoming one’s conditions, and the way that the government always tries to keep people down. Why the governments would try to keep people down isn’t beyond me and hopefully others, as we know that they’ve spent decades keeping black and impoverished people from pulling themselves up and out. Cleverly, Taylor and his co-writer Tony Rettenmaier use our history and the best bits of SciFi to craft this terrific film.
