Description JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Usher), 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 (Jackson) 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 coat, there's no denying family. Besides, Shaft's got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that's professional and personal.

Where to begin? The movie takes a spin-off of "Shaft", but it wasn't necessarily planned that way. That film, "Shaft", was a violent, yet beautiful picture that should have been an instant cult favorite, if not the action movie classic that it was. But the big question for me was where did the idea come from? The movie is titled "Shaft", but it is obviously a spin-off of "Shaft", with only one or two scenes of the first movie playing during the entire movie. This is because, quite honestly, the original "Shaft" was nothing more than a simple stand-up comedy movie, and the whole "Shaft" concept was taken away from the story in order to make room for some other story line. Even when the movie takes the "Shaft" storyline in the second movie, the story still isn't focused on. But, seeing the original "Shaft" film made me want to watch the movie, so I thought "Why not?" Not only does the movie have the "Shaft" story, but it also has the other stories that are in the first "Shaft". The movie opens with a young Joe Mannix (James Woods) and his mother (Sissy Spacek) in prison. He is then hired by a mob boss (Tommy Lee Jones) to go after two men who stole his mother's heart. He ends up running into a mob boss (Lance Henricksen), and he ends up helping them rob a bank. He runs into his old friend Bill (Adam Beach), who is now a famous mobster, and then comes into a fight with his former master, and he is now the boss. He tells Joe that his mother's heart belongs to him, and Joe goes to the bank to get it, but as he gets to the bank, he realizes his life is in danger. The mob boss sees that Joe has the heart of his mother, and he makes Joe sign a contract stating that he will get his mother's heart, and that he will kill any other mobsters who want it. Then, he tells Joe he is going to kill him, but then all of a sudden, he shows up, and he kills all of the mobsters, then he and his mother just sit there. They both go to the cemetery, and Joe says "My Mother's Heart". And then, he cuts off his mother's heart, and he gives it to his mother, and he says "My Mother's Heart is yours" and then he puts it in his own heart. Then he walks into the church, and the priest tells him that he is the new boss, and then he walks out of the church and he sees his father, and he turns and

I had read all the negative reviews and they had it right. Not a single bit of it is true, this movie was the best movie of 2005 and it has the best actor, Shia. I never saw the first two "Shaft" movies. The only film I saw was the first one. This movie was like the first one without the straight razor, but without the cheap musical soundtrack and with better acting. It was really good. This film has a lot of action and I loved the action. I had never seen something like this before. If you love action and you love Shia LeBouf, you will love this film. I don't think I can say that about any other action films of 2005. Action films have become the last reason to go to the movies, but not this one. For the first time ever I was walking out of the movie theater with a big grin on my face and my heart in my mouth. Not only did I laugh at the jokes that i have seen a million times before, I even laughed my head off at the one minute scene with the pigeons (really funny). I never thought that a million jokes could get me to a point where i would start laughing like that. I also liked the ending. It was a little surprising but I don't know what you would call it. All I know is that it is good. And by that i mean that this film deserves it's place in my top five of the best movies of 2005. I also like to mention that the first two "Shaft" films are amazing films, they're really good, but they don't get the praise that this one deserves. I have seen it six times and it gets better every time. I also like the opening scene with the longshot. Not only did it have a really good use of music, but it showed the audience what the director was going to do. I have to say that I think that this movie is a modern day crime classic and that it should be mentioned as a great crime film.

OK, I admit I was skeptical. After all, it was a remake of a movie that was made in the late 1970's, starring Kevin Costner, Danny Glover, and Arliss Howard. I never saw the original. Well, I did see the remake. It was quite good. In fact, it was really good. But the remake did not have that Kevin Costner movie star appeal. Sure, he was in it, but for the most part, he was just a very very good actor, not the star, not the heart, not the heart of the movie, but good at what he does. He was, at the end of the day, a good actor. I just did not find him to be that likable. Not only that, but Costner's character was just likeable. He is a great athlete, he has a very good sense of humor, and a great sense of humor. This guy is a terrific athlete. The guy has it. So why in the world would we want him to lose it in a movie? We would not. He was fantastic in this movie. Danny Glover plays the part of the good-guy coach that was simply a bit too likeable. Arliss Howard was just right for the part. He did not give any of the lines, he did not take any of the shots, he did not make any of the mistakes. He just did what was right and just good, which was to bring Danny Glover back on the basketball court. It was so well done that I almost forgot that he had a role in the movie. But, it was a very good role, and it was played well by Arliss Howard. Now that I have seen the remake, I have changed my opinion. I think the original is much better than the remake. I just think the original has its flaws, as well as the remake, but it is still a very good movie. I recommend it to everyone, no matter if they saw the original or not. Now I just don't know if I will see the remake. But I certainly hope that this movie gets the good reviews that it deserves.
