MOVIE:  Shaft

NUTSHELL:  Sam Peckinpah’s Shaft!

GOOD THINGS:  Samuel L. Jackson, Vannessa Williams, Richard Roundtree, Christian Bale

BAD THINGS:  Dan Hedaya, Incoherent villains, NYPD’s finest

FEATURES:  Lynn Thigpen, the dead people kid’s mom, rastafari

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Growing unease while watching violent, fictional versions of NYPD officers behaving basically like violent, non-fictional NYPD officers .

NOTABLE:  The Costumes! Armani should have gotten a producer credit. Even the bulletproof vests are ultra-fashionable.

BEST PART:  Samuel L. Jackson kicking ass and driving Mack Trucks through plot holes, even though he has apparently been neutered.

BEST LINE:   It is my duty to please that booty.

CROWNS:  2 out of 5
