Samuel L. Jackson takes on the starring
role of John Shaft, detective.
With his charisma, he holds the audience's
attention with the sheer power of his presence, and looks that
could shake most criminals.
It delivers what's expected with great,
A real cool action-hero-picture held together
by Samuel L. Jackson.
Self-mocking to the point of parody, this
movie plays like a 70s T.V. show, complete with corrupt cops,
maniacal drug dealers, and bad guys who just can't shoot straight.
Not great entertainment, but it delivers
exactly what you would expect.
A hesitant scissors side-ways, and that's
for the original Isaac Hayes score.
I liked the music theme in this extremely
violent film, but in the end the picture drifts with a sudden
and dissatisfying conclusion.
The star and hero fails to provide the
violent remedy and relief by not confronting the villain. That
is usually the climax in this type of action flick and (in my
view) makes for a disappointing ending.
