4.0 out of 5 stars The decade defining film collection, 12 Jan 2002
This is the detective that needs no introduction, or very little at least, Shaft defined the blaxploitation films of the 70's. In the first film Shaft is hired by Bumpy the mobster to find his daughter. Through a series of jive talking scenes, savage beatings at the hand of Shaft he discovers the whereabouts of Bumpys offspring. Even if the film isn't to your tastes the amazing soundtrack by Isaac Hayes is worth the video price itself. The second of the trilogy is decidely weaker as a film but still scores as a blaxploitation classic. Unfortunately the soundtrack isn't anywhere near as good as the original. The third in the trilogy "Shaft in Africa" is poor, but still it's a "Shaft" movie and just with the name on the box alone it's worth getting. In this film Shaft smashes a slave ring in Africa, highly medicre fare but with the originals vibrance and soundtrack, these videos should be in every collection of people who are fans of the blaxploitation genre and funk of the 70's
