The Press Reviews

  • Whether you take this iteration of the character as an affectionate throwback or a cringe-worthy anachronism, it's hard to watch "Shaft" without feeling a little wistful. Full Review

  • A strange, angry attack on modernity that feels like the result of a group of bitter men griping about the metrosexualisation of a younger generation. Full Review

  • It's all terribly contrived but, thanks to Samuel L. Jackson, this reboot of a reboot manages to resurrect stray moments of '70s-era, go-it-alone impudence and irreverence that still carry a certain appeal. Full Review

  • Yes, the great Isaac Hayes music makes an appearance, but the old days are gone and they are not coming back. Full Review

  • It's mix-and-match thriller MacGuffin clichés, but the movie barely pretends to be interested in this generic crime plot. Full Review
