Two decades before his smash success with Straight Outta Compton, director F. Gary Gray assembled another hard-hitting screen crew — Jada Pinkett, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise — for this heist thriller about a tight-knit group of friends who lash back at the society that oppresses them by embarking on a series of bank robberies. Featuring thrilling action sequences of these modern-day Robin Hoods taking their fates into their own hands, Set It Off unapologetically celebrates subversive Black female agency while also creating a powerful emotional dimension so often lacking from its genre, encompassing joy, vulnerability, and solidarity.
