“Who’s the black private dick, That’s a sex machine to all the chicks? (Shaft!); You’re damn right!” Yes my friends you are DAMNED RIGHT and the one and only Shaft has a new movie albeit one that I didn’t even expect was being released. This is a sequel to the film of the same name from 2000. Here’s the first trailer.
The Plot: John “JJ” Shaft Jr. is an FBI agent and a cybersecurity expert with a degree from MIT. After his best friend dies under suspicious circumstances, he turns to his estranged father – the legendary John Shaft II – to uncover the truth. Father and son must navigate the Harlem underworld to solve the crime. Along the way they team up with the first generation John Shaft.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I never managed to see the 2000 “Shaft” film, but a long time ago in a galaxy far far away I saw the first original “Shaft” film. It was a very interesting time in film and this was among the blaxpoitation releases of the day. This film looks to be as much a comedy as an action film and at the point of this trailer update I don’t think that I will be seeing it in the theater. I know I will have my hands full with the crop of superhero films and the after effect of a few conventions. What about you fine readers? Will you be looking into this one based on the trailer? Maybe you need another one and if they release one I shall be back for sure. I’m really enjoying sharing these sorts of things with you and look forward to plenty more. See you next time.
