Review: ‘Candyman’ (dir. Nia DaCosta)

Candyman (2021) is a reboot while simultaneously acting as a semi-sequel, however, it never entirely commits to being either one. Having seen the original 1992 film would only enhance your understanding of who the Candyman is, but this 2021 edition also easily stands on its own. There are several glimpses of brilliance, but it never entirely amounts to what it aimed to do.
