Shaft (2019)

Tim Story directs Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher and Regina Hall in this father and son buddy cop comedy where a straight-edge millennial FBI analyst teams-up with his blaxploitation legend father to solve a mystery.

Has the colour, the shape, the dynamic, the form, the plotting, the humour and the action of a TV movie for kids. But for adults? Crass, lowest common denominator stuff, minimal effort has been put into nearly every aspect. Jackson is as ever watchable, game even, but the only ambition of everyone else involved is to be inoffensively adequate.
