What does it mean.

OK the action and the girls make it easier to watch, help to make it mainstream. And being Shaft, that the premise. But what does it mean? The lesson here? Don't mess with Samuel Jackson. OK. When he buffaloes a drug dealer, beats the sh*t out him and screams whats my name *******? Do you wanna see me again? Well, thats and effective way to make an point. Violence used at its best.

The political point of making an outlawish pursuit of punishment to a racist stupid yuppie, that goes out free in a hypocritical society and soldout judges, police corruption and the everyday racism that there are still people who try to justify that, law abiding citizens or to put it in shaft clear words "nazis with a badge"

In this context that the movie was made, and that we STILL live in, white folks, and sometimes even black folks, intellectual or not, might miss what it means and mistake it for just any action with hot girls movie. In the American reality, to have a black superhero, that challenges corrupt judges, knocks off the police, beat the hell out of rich criminals, helps the community, and got a bunch of girlfriends; hey man, you got a role model.

It's watchable...

They had the funds, they had the means, they had some good acting crew, they even had a fine reputation of the previous Shaft, but somehow they managed to make only half a movie - the second half is barely watchable.

The first half goes quite smoothly, introducing us with the main characters and the main plot. Samuel L. Jackson is a great choice for the role of Shaft, but even his flawless appearance couldn't make this movie special, or even above average.

This new Shaft lacks cunning and authority, making him nothing more than a regular cop who is trying to right the wrongs. And that would be just fine if the whole bunch on nonsensical and absurd things didn't occur in the second part of the movie. As if all the following events were just randomly piled upon each other, still connected with the story, but lacking common sense. All of that just made me indifferent about how the movie will end.

Still, it's watchable, but don't expect anything special and overly exciting.

An Honest Review

Have you seen it? No? There is likely a very good reason for that...it stinks.

Like nearly ALL the endless remakes and reboots that have been plaguing movie goers for the past decade or so....all this is, is a heartless version of the original.

It has no heart.

It has no soul.

It is a retelling of a film that we all love and cherish...and it adds nothing to the story. It improves nothing but the special effects--which held up very well over time--and in some cases belittles the fans of the original...particularly in the fact that they remade the movie at all, without adding anything clever to it.

Like so many other remakes it is a hallow shell of the original.
