Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Shaft 2000 is not so much a remake as an elaboration on 1971's seminal blaxploitation classic, Shaft, reviving Ernest Tidyman's fictional private eye in the formidable person of Samuel L. Jackson. Actually the nephew of the character originally played by Richard Roundtree who essays the role once more in an amusing cameo, Jackson's Shaft quits the police force and goes into private practice after legal legerdemain frees one of his "collars," a callow playboy Christian Bale who murdered a young black man. Aided by a former comrade Vanessa Williams and marked for execution by a psychotic drug dealer Jeffrey Wright in all his scene-stealing glory, Shaft doggedly pursues the wealthy killer. Writer-director John Singleton Rosewood makes visual and verbal references to previous Shaft films, but in style and attitude his version owes little to the now-almost-quaint blaxploitation formula; it's every bit as tense, fast-moving, and violent as the best '90s cop thrillers. The DVD is packed with extras, including exclusive cast and crew interviews, music videos for Issac Hayes's classic Shaft theme song and R. Kelly's "Bad Man," a featurette on the making of the film, and a theatrical trailer.
All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
John Singleton's 2000 remake resurrects the popular black detective from the early '70s and adds a layer of complexity rarely seen in the original series. The story, which pits NYPD detective John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson), the nephew of the original private dick, against a rich, white killer played by Christian Bale, is basically a pretext for a series of showdowns between Shaft, the rich kid, and anyone else who gets in the detective's way. This may sound simple, and in some sense the script does run along familiar lines, but writer Richard Price has created a richly varied world of characters in which to place the formidable detective, giving them dialogue that is often stinging, and at times memorable. Jackson, an intense, commanding presence, is superb, as is the rest of the cast, from the spooky Bale to N.Y.C. stage veterans Philip Bosco and Josef Sommer, and of course, the man who started it all, Richard Roundtree.

    Surprisingly good

    I've never heard of the original shaft and saw this mostly because Bale was in it. Surprisingly this wasn't that bad and not only Bale but Samuel did a pretty good job too. I was very surprised by Bale's character. it shows that he is one hell of an actor and that he can play either a bad guy like in American Psycho or just plain weird like in the machinist especially or a good guy like in reign of fire. Busta Rymes was funny and Vanessa Williams was also good too. jeffrey wright was weird and not bad either and i recognized him from lady in the water. This is the story about a cop detective, a killer and a witness. There is some subject matter so remember to watch with an open mind. Check this out if you like the original shaft, Samuel and or are a bale fan
