Who delivers ten times out of ten Samuel L. Jackson is Shaft, the man and the movie. John Singleton (Boys 'N' the Hood) directs this gritty action packed thriller. With Uncle John Shaft (Richard Roundtree reprising his original role) as mentor, it's no surprise that today's Shaft is the coolest dude and the hottest action around. To stop a racist killer (Christain Bale) Shaft's got to track down the only eyewitness that can put him behind bars. (Toni Collette). As Shaft closes in, so does the danger. Armed with attitude and up against corrupt cops and venomous druglords he's out to make crime pay up.
