Samuel L. Jackson returns as John Shaft in the movie Shaft, the sequel to his 2000 movie Shaft, based on the original 1971 movie Shaft which starred Richard Roundtree as John Shaft. Ya following me so far? Roundtree’s original 3 movies had Shaft taking on the Mafia, human traffickers, assassins, and locating some hidden cash to the sum of $250,000. Hey, it’s the 1970’s, that was a LOT of money back then. Samuel Jackson took on the role of the original Shafts son.

Shaft has always been that badass, take charge ladies man with the best soundtrack and plenty of bad guys to bust up.
