Summary
  • JJ, aka John Shaft Jr., may be a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend's untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ's youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem's heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ's own FBI analyst's badge may clash with his dad's trademark leather duster, there's no denying family
  • "We can dig what Barbershop's Tim Story is up to with his 2019 version of Shaft, if only for the excellent chemistry between Roundtree, Jackson and new hire Jessie T. Usher..."--Toronto Star
  • "A fluffy update of a gritty classic."--Newsday
  • "... is also funny, with a sharp, fast-paced humor (though one transphobic joke is a tone-deaf clunker). And it's always enjoyable to watch Jackson walking around while dropping f-bombs (and mother-f-bombs) all over the place."--Washington Post
