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 That leads to a loose plot wrapped around outdated jokes when the modern man and a blaxploitation legend's worlds collide.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.
