They Cloned Tyrone is easily one of Netflix's best original movies released in 2023. This gonzo sci-fi caper film stars John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx as a drug dealer, a sex worker, and a pimp. It’s an unlikely group, yet they come together to investigate a mysterious cloning conspiracy unraveling in their very own neighborhood, the Glen. What happens when they begin inspecting things they’ve always believed to be normal around their town?

Everything from the church they attend to their haircare products might be hiding a sinister secret. They Cloned Tyrone is a slick, stylish film with beautiful cinematography and expert directing from Juel Taylor. It’s a hilarious film with several tense, jaw-dropping scenes, but also insightful, and it provides sharp social commentary.

There are plenty of throwback references to classic 1970s Blaxploitation films and more recent features like Eddie Murphy’s Black Dynamite, and even shades of Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You. Boyega, Parris, and Foxx are genuinely at their best here. I could watch them banter with each other for hours. The soundtrack is also fantastic, and you can tell the cast had excellent chemistry which each other. I’d love for Netflix to release a blooper reel for this one!
