A sequel of sorts to the 1971 film, Samuel L. Jackson stars as the NYPD detective John Shaft (a nephew to the original 70s character). Shaft is on a personal mission to see the son of a real estate tycoon brought to justice after a racially motivated murder. Christian Bale plays the real estate heir, while Toni Collette, Vanessa Williams and Busta Rhymes all appear in supporting roles. Not the greatest film ever made, but a lot of fun for a midweek watch.
