Shaft (2019)

Rated: R - Runtime: 111 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

The movie opens with a backstory that has more Shaft to it than Samuel L Jackson's entire first Shaft movie.  We lead into Shaft's estranged son enlisting his father to help him figure out what happened to his friend.  That leads to a loose plot wrapped around outdated jokes when the modern man and a blaxploitation legend's worlds collide.  You'll either roll your eyes or you'll laugh a lot.

I laughed.  A lot.

Expecting something deeper?  Remember this going in...IT'S A FREAKING SHAFT MOVIE.
