New York City police detective John Shaft (nephew of the original 1970s detective) goes on a personal mission to make sure the son of a real estate tycoon is brought to justice after a racially-motivated murder.
Samuel L. Jackson,
The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

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.
Shaft (2000) was about John Shaft I's nephew, whilst this one is about John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson)'s son, John Shaft Jr. See more »
When JJ Shaft and John Shaft come to JJ's apartment after a night out (when JJ puked on a woman) JJ checks his cellular phone that shows time being 12:27. The clock at the wall seems to be 4:32 only few seconds later. See more »
Midway through the end credits, a hip-hop song abruptly stops, we hear a radio scanning, and then it lands in the middle of an old-school R&B ballad. This is a callback to a scene earlier in the film when Jackson changes the station on the car radio. See more »

Nice to see a film without an agenda to push. Shaft was entertaining from start to finish. Good action, good comedic timing, and Samuel L Jackson is awesome (as usual). If you are one of those modern day sensitive snowflakes, this film might not be for you though.
