The original Shaft came out in the early to late 70's and starred Richard Roundtree. What many people don't know is that like James Bond, Shaft was based on a series of novels. The author in fact does say that the character of John Shaft, is an African American version of James Bond.

This movie had several sequels including a followup in 2000 starring Samuel L.Jackson, yes - Mace... read more

"22/05/2015 Olisin halunnut pitää Shaftistä vielä enemmän. Elokuvassa on kuitenkin vähän samaa vikaa kuin Boss Niggerissä, ettei toimintaäijäilyä osata viedä ihan loppuun asti. Mutta onhan Shaft silti mies."

Movie Reviews (part 851-900) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Richard Roundtree that reeks of the cool vibe. Isaac Hayes' voice on the title song with a song text that surprisingly got through the censors. Highly influential as it was the first true movie made for the Afro Americans in the States. It's realistic gritty atmosphere. Fun dialogue. The Downs: It is slow if one expect an action film when it is more a 70s film noir. "

"From Harlem to midtown to Greenwich Village, no one seems to have a finger on the pulse of the city like Richard Roundtree’s impossibly badass private eye in Gordon Parks’s blaxploitation classic. He’s a man whose loyalty shifts from faction to faction but always seems to belong, quietly, to New York.—Alison Willmore"

This movie had several sequels including a followup in 2000 starring Samuel L.Jackson, yes - Mace Windu himself, as John Shaft - who is the nephew to John Shaft. Confused? Don't you worry, I was a little bit confused at first too.

Worth noting however is the theme song which is sung by Issac Hayes, who you might know as the voice of Chef on South Park. Well he was until he quit the show after the episode Trapped In The Closet took a jab at scientology, - unfortunately afte” read more

"Blaxploitation crosses into the mainstream in a movie titled Shaft. And the basic premise is that it's about the adventures of a black private dick who's a sex machine to all the chicks. Now, now, get your mind outta the gutter....it's not what you might think. You see, this cat Shaft is a bad motherf*.... well, this is a family site, so I think I better just shut my mouth. But, y'all know that I'm talkin' about Shaft, right? "

"March 29 I decided to watch this over the Samuel L. Jackson version first since this one got more acclaim. I did like this one, but I can't say it was anything mind-blowing. It is still worth watching though. "
