A stylish and cool version
Directed and co-written by the late John Singleton (Poetic Justice, Rosewood) and starring Samuel L. Jackson (The Negotiator, S.W.A.T.) Christian Bale (Terminator Salvation, Harsh Times) Toni Collette (Fright Night, Mary and Max) Jeffrey Wright (The Invasion, Ride with the Devil) and Richard Roundtree (Q The Winged Serpent, Maniac Cop)
New York City police detective John Shaft goes on a personal mission to make sure the son of a real estate tycoon is brought to justice after a racially-motivated murder.
Sam smoothly slips into this bad mother (you know the rest) and gives his own to the character and Christian is great as slimely and douchey villain.
This Thriller is the the closest we will ever get to a true great follow up and better than 2019 film and this picture a good double feature with the original.
