A Total Insult To The Original!!By wikkidsmyle (438 reviews) from Newmarket , 23 Feb 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]What on earth possessed Samuel L Jackson, Christian Bale and Toni Collette to star in this pile of garbage? The storyline is juvenile TV detective show; the racism worse than in the so-called 'blaxplotation' film it is supposed to 'homage'; the swearing is grating and the soundtrack from David 'James Bond' Arnold is awful. Coning Richard Rountree to guest star as 'the randy uncle' is the final insult. AVOID!

confusing and disappointingBy cheesekake (1501 reviews) from uk , 31 Oct 2013to be honest I don't know what I expected from this film, I know I expected a lot more from Bale and Jackson. Found this film confusing and really disappointing, simply cause it was a cops and robbers type thing without the oomph that the other types of films of this genre have
Shaft's first name is john?By angloitalian (34 reviews) , 29 May 2012Shaft is a film that does exactly what you expect of it
a mixture of action and adventure with a dose of tension and the odd stereotype Shaft is certainly worth one watch but at rare points will this film surprise you in the direction that it takes
Samuel L Jackson and Christian Bale both play their parts in making a decent action film however this is a film we've all seen many times before and will probably be placed somewhere in the middle of both their careers
Bad re-makeBy a customer , 13 May 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideRichard Roundtree must have been embarrassed to be in this very poor re-make. Average story/plot, excessive foul language and little action make for a bad night in.
