Something went wrong.

  •  Trailer
During the summer of 1977, a killer known as the Son of Sam keeps all of New York City on edge with a series of brutal murders. A gang makes a list of everyone they think is a freak-o. The witch-hunt is on, with an aspiring punk rocker becoming the focus of their suspicion and an easy scapegoat for their fears.

I needed stronger and more balanced characters to really care what happened.

New York Observer
This is trashy exploitation at its clumsiest. Once more, a Spike Lee movie has been undone by the earnestness of being important.

Detroit News
Summer of Sam scatters most of its force by straying far from the compelling, plenty-complex business at hand.

Sacramento News & Review
The film is sloppy and ill-formed, its tone lurching drunkenly from turgid soap opera to soft-core porn, descending at times to low camp.

This ultimately disappoints, but it is good to see Lee branch out into subjects which don't immediately lend themselves to his single-minded politicizing.

Reeling Reviews
Lee does capture the terror a serial killer can wreak upon the community, but his concentration on the weak characters hurts in the long run.

Los Angeles Times
Lee is a powerful filmmaker who certainly knows how to have an impact on an audience, but those who survive his ministrations are likely to wonder if in this case the battle was worth the bruises.

Trouble is, the overlong narrative, however entertaining from minute to minute, is a mess.

The disappointment with Summer of Sam is not that it's exploitative; it's just difficult to figure out what it's supposed to be about.
