About Shaft

The iconic private detective John Shaft is back in action in the 2019 film "Shaft." Directed by Tim Story, this latest installment in the franchise stars Samuel L. Jackson as the titular character, reprising his role from the 2000 film of the same name. The film also features Jessie T. Usher as John Shaft Jr., the son of the original Shaft, played by Richard Roundtree.

"Shaft" is a fun and action-packed ride that pays homage to the original blaxploitation films of the 1970s while also updating the story for a modern audience. Jackson is as cool and charismatic as ever, and Usher brings a fresh energy to the franchise. The film also features some great supporting performances from Regina Hall and Alexandra Shipp.

While "Shaft" may not be the most groundbreaking film of the year, it's a solid addition to the franchise and a fun summer blockbuster. Fans of the original films and newcomers alike will find plenty to enjoy in this latest adventure of John Shaft.
