New York City police detective John Shaft (nephew of the original 1970s detective) goes on a personal mission to make sure the son of a real estate tycoon is brought to justice after a racially-motivated murder.
Samuel L. Jackson,
Fresh out of prison, Thomas Taylor (Christian Slater) assembles a team of outlaws to pull off his most brilliant heist yet. Alas, the stolen money is marked, enabling FBI agent Mark Cornell (Val Kilmer) to swiftly track down Taylor & Co. But the corrupt agent is not interested in making an arrest: Using his knowledge of Taylor's guilt as leverage, the wily agent coerces the crooks into engineering an even bigger robbery, this time targeting a high-profile riverboat casino. Written by
Innept and boring action flick in which an ex-con (Slater) with some strange partners (including Miss Hannah in a lame performance) pull out an audacious robbery but are mistreat by a corrupt FBI agent (Kilmer). Senseless and vulgar, this movie is a real example of the bad influences within the late productions of America cinema. Hard to watch in every way with a ridiculous ending that agravatted the final result. I give this a 03 (three).
