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

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.

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.

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

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.
