Samuel L. Jackson appear as the new Shaft, actually the nephew of the original Shaft (Roundtree) who also appear in a small role. Jackson is not a sex machine though, but still fight for injustice as he stop mean, slimy racist bastards. Some inspired humor and the update of the title song works, but the subplot with a drug ring don't work well and the film lacks everything that made the genre cool in the 1970s.
5 stars?!?! You goddamn right. Bale is amazing and hilarious as the white cracker ass villain and if that wasn't enough here's Jeff wright killing it as a Dominican? Gangster...I mean embarrassment of riches. Great lil NY crime flick too. Sam Jackson dnt play
