You can't say the mob wasn't warned about John Shaft. "He's a bad dude", a racketeer cautions them. Now Shaft himself will deliver that message in a way New York City's wise guys understand.
In this film, Richard Roundtree returns as street-smart P.I. John Shaft, who runs afoul of the underworld as he investigates a friend's murder. But the players are about to be played in this hard-edged thriller, the second of the three Shaft films of the 1970s. The very first Shaft film was a commercial success, and so two more films were made, so he's back with more, Shaft's in action.
The DVD for this film has a dual layer format in that Side A features the regular version whereas Side B features the widescreen version.
Very highly recommended.
