  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Shaft's Big Score!

    Richard Roundtree is the definitive Shaft returning here for the second film. The atmosphere and streets still feel authentic and real, but Shaft is also more an action hero than a detective now as he have to battle against a helicopter and do slow-moving fighting. This sequel is not as fresh and cool as the original but I still had much fun though.

  2. Spencer Draper's rating of the film Shaft's Big Score!

    This has more of a exploitation feel than the famous original but we get more of a sense of how Shaft operates. The ending chase is surprisingly protracted, and the score is lively. Not a bad way to pass the time but also makes one wish they had done a proper story with a bigger budget.

  3. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Shaft's Big Score!

    A solid crime/detective/action movie with effective, and sometimes pretty creative, action/chase cinematography that makes good use of NYC location shooting.
