John Shaft Jr., a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, enlists his family’s help to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death.
Haven’t seen any of the original Shaft films from the 70s or the rebooted continuation from the early 2000s? Fear not, as a pre-screening video to this latest attempted revival of the franchise (this is now the third film in the saga simply titled Shaft) saw the multi-generational family catch us up, specifically Samuel L. Jackson who sums it up better than anyone else ever could; original Shaft (a returning Richard Roundtree) kicks ass, his son John Shaft II (Samuel L. Jackson) kicks ass.
