The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

In this movie Shaft (samuel l jackson) is a cop or P.I in new york city. The story is based on Shaft finding a rich playboy kid that murdered a innocent black man. Shaft seeks justice for the wrongfull murder and racist crime against his nationality.
The review of this Movie prepared by Robert Hubbard

"Shaft" is an immature macho movie infested with phallic symbols such as loads of guns and shooting, foul language and a cocky attitude on the part of every male starring in it.
