Shaft plot

"More Shaft than you can handle"

JJ, better known as John Shaft Jr., is a cybersecurity expert with an MIT degree. However, this does not prevent him from asking his father for help to find out the truth behind his best friend's death. Their relationship is not going smoothly due to the constant absence of father throughout Juniors' childhood. Both begin an investigation and make their way through the underworld of Harlem. What my son doesn't know is that his dad has his own agenda and has a score to settle both professionally and personally.

Very entertaining action movie. Pleasant pace, nice setting and a retro sauce: this version has it all. Samuel L. Jackson plays Samuel L. Jackson, every now and then I get tired of him, but in this kind of movie he fits perfectly. The rest of the cast is also doing okay, and with Richard Roundtree, the original Shaft, the finale is real fan service. I'm not a fan of Shaft - only saw the 2000 version - but good, you can still add that.

Three generations of Shaft team up in this slightly too light-hearted, but acceptable update of the 1971 blackploitation classic and the 2000 reboot. JJ Shaft [Jess T. Usher] is working in the FBI's cybersecurity department when a close friend comes under suspicious circumstances. comes to life. According to the official version, it would be a heroin overdose, but from the autopsy report JJ concludes that there is murder. At his wits' end, he seeks help from his father John Shaft [Samuel L. Jackson], whom he has had no contact with for years. John Shaft Sr [Richard Roundtree] also contributes to a film that is somewhat disappointing as a crime film and mainly relies on the not inconsiderable charisma of Jackson and Roundtree. Usher also holds its own well, but those who are not familiar with the previous films from the Shaft franchise will probably see less of the fun in this.
