Movie Pick of the Day: Shaft

He’s one bad motha…you get the phrase. This time, it’s not one, but three generation of Shaft’s coming together. Samuel L. Jackson is joined by the original Shaft Richard Roundtree, and joining them is Jessie T. Usher as Samuel L. Jackson’s movie son, get it that? Point is, you got all the Shaft’s you could ask for.

Fans of the previous film’s in the franchise will undeniably get a kick out of this one. It’s got plenty of laughs and action. It’ smooth and cool as you’d imagine a Shaft movie to be.

You get all the expected Shaft fun with the modern tech added to the equation. Good thing is that you still get the street wise and foumouthed Shaft. T. Usher’s character adds a new different dynamic to the crew.

This movie is further proof that Shaft will always be relevant, no matter what decade or time. Fun is fun. Ya dig?
