It’s been almost 40 years since moviegoers were introduced to the action hero John Shaft, played by Richard Roundtree in three trailblazing movies and one short-lived TV series. Heroic, revolutionary and confidently, powerfully sexual, Roundtree’s version of the character became a cultural icon, thanks in no small part to an unforgettable, Oscar-winning ode to his awesomeness, composed and performed by Isaac Hayes.

In the decades that followed there have been two attempts to revitalize the motion picture franchise. The late, great John Singleton cast Samuel L. Jackson as Shaft’s nephew in the exciting 2000 reboot, which skillfully balanced the action and social commentary inherent to the character, and yet somehow it never yielded a proper sequel.

Now, 19 years later, we finally have another reboot, this one about the third generation of Shaft, played by Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence). Jackson and Roundtree both return to bring a sense of continuity to the franchise, which would probably have been satisfying if it felt like this new Shaft had remotely the same tone as the others.
