Based on the character John Shaft from Ernest Tidyman's novel of the same name, comes the newest installment in the Shaft franchise. John Shaft Jr. (Jessie. T. Usher) is a cyber security hotshot working for the FBI, but after the sudden death of his best friend and in search of answers, he turns to his father, John Shaft II (Samuel L. Jackson), to help him navigate the dangerous and drug-fueled Harlem. Though their styles differ, both have an agenda of retribution in this action comedy film, directed by Tim Story.
