I really love this movie. It was a great film. The critics are all wrong about this movie. It was really relatable and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The whole cast was great and played really well off each other. If you're black no matter what generation you are, there are relatable sayings and parts in this movie.

Loved every bit of this movie and didn’t want to see it end. Enjoyed Samuel L Jackson’s style portraying Shaft. Everyone seems to be offended with his language in betraying women but it’s Shaft not Mary Poppins. This is Shaft.

I did not know what to expect. The movie was funny. I enjoyed 3 generations of actors. I felt like the Actor who played the son seemed less genuine. I saw him in a cable series and he was far better in his acting. Over all the movie was funny, good action and of course Regina Hall was completely awesome!

A private eye who's a sex machine to all the chicks, as the song went back in 1971, isn't exactly tailor-made to 2019. The new Shaft plays with that tension but yields mixed results, in an action comedy that's neither consistently funny nor especially exciting, despite Samuel L. Jackson's second stab at the part.

To listen to Jackson doing street talk is akin to reveling in Olivier reciting Shakespeare — in other words, it's one of the great pleasures of the language. Edit the film down to his dialogue and you have a wonderful greatest hits collection.

Tim Story takes a classic movie franchise and drains it of all the action, sex and topicality that made it worth revisiting in the first place. Jackson, Roundtree and Usher have star power to spare but they’re asked to perform embarrassing and ignorant comedy routines, and the action is so unremarkable that the movie can’t even rely on that spectacle to compensate.
