Shaft is a film based off the old tv show that was just as bad ass as this movie. It stars Samuel L Jackson as Shaft, for those who don't know he is a detective in the hard hitting streets of New York. He sets his sites on a character played by Christian Bale who skipped bail on murder charges. Once he returns to New York and gets bail once again Shaft quit the force and takes matters into his own hands. All he has to do is track down the one eye-witness who saw the murder go down. Only problem is no one has see her since that night, plus Shaft has a few people head hunting him.
This movie was a fun watch. It's has all my favorite things that a good cop movie should. Crooked businessmen, drug lords, bad cop and good cop what else do you need. Plus SLJ as my man Shift!? How can you not love it? I also love how they sneak in a few lines of jive just as a throw back to the tv show. If you have never seen this I highly recommend it. You can find this on any HBO app or demand services. Just shut your mouth and watch it!
