Samuel L. Jackson was really good as Detective John Shaft. Christian Bale brings his Batemanlike role in this action packed flick about justice. It brought out the coolness of the main protagonist, had some nice soundtracks and camera direction. If only the rest of the cast were good enough for the main talents mentioned. Shaft is an enjoyable cop picture that doesn't really leave a mark, but still fun to watch.

Nowhere near as memorable as the original, but it works as an entertaining and engrossing crime drama mainly because of the two leads. Samuel L. Jackson is at his most intense and early Christian Bale completely disappears into the role of a cruel, racist rich kid.

"Shaft" by Yojimbo

Renegade tough guy cop John Shaft sets his sights on an over-privileged racist who murdered an innocent man and skipped bail using his father's influence. The hardest thing to swallow about this film is a bald Shaft, and to be honest it seems like a bit of a cheek to use the name and Isaac Hayes' classic theme tune for what is essentially just another generic cop thriller. However, because of a nice homage to classic Blaxploitation soundtracks and a charismatic performance by SLJ who gamely kicks the ass of racist assholes and smart mouthed gangstas alike, Singleton manages to emulate the flavour of a 70s cop show just enough to make the first half of the film fairly enjoyable. Unfortunately by the end Busta Rhymes and Jeffrey Wright, who are both awful, are afforded far too much screen t...
