When a childhood friend of JJā€™s (Jessie Usher) dies, it looks like he might actually have been murdered; reluctantly, JJ turns to his estranged father, John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson). 19 years after the last Shaft movie came this sequel/reboot that brings us both previous Shafts but also the latest generation ā€“ whoā€™s anything like his dad and granddad. The filmmakers emphasize how out of touch Jacksonā€™s Shaft has become; the clash between him and his woke son has its amusing moments. Weak story, but gets a slight boost from Richard Roundtreeā€™s appearance.Ā 

2019-U.S. 111 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Tim Story. Cast: Samuel L. Jackson (John Shaft), Jessie Usher (John ā€JJā€ Shaft, Jr.), Richard Roundtree (John Shaft), Alexandra Shipp, Regina Hall, Matt Lauriaā€¦ Method Man.
