Shaft 2000

From Amazon: Samuel L. Jackson makes a gleefully updated John Shaft in John Singleton's homage to (not remake of) the early '70s action classic, picking up where Richard Roundtree's legendary Shaft left off. The Manhattan-set film is highlighted by excellent performances, dynamic action scenes, and witty one-liners (Jackson's Shaft: "It's my duty to please the booty"--although the line's deceptive: there's a surprising lack of sex in the film).

Shaft Movie Review by Derringer (12/6/2008)


John Shaft is his name.

And being a Cop/P.I. is his game.

Here's a 'loaded' lyric-line from the title track of 'SHAFT', courtesy of songwriter, ISAAC HAYES.
