Politically out of date, but funny and entertaining .

He defines the term "sleepwalking through the picture" looking bored and uninterested throughout and HE'S THE BEST THING IN THE FILM!

Very Entertaining .

Predictable .

He balances so much into the role, like seeing Nick Fury in a rated R role, that is certainly entertaining to watch.

Along with every other cliche and stereotype made famous by the "Blaxploitation" craze of the early 1970's!

In addition, my description of lazy writing is at full front here, with Shaft getting too dependent on the use of these expletives to remain entertaining for me.

A lot of the humorous scenes are given away in the trailer but I still found most of the film to be entertaining and funny.

Bland, boring and uninteresting .

The scenes of levity are enjoyable.

This movie was great to see with the old vs the new with the shafts it was very enjoyable.

Very enjoyable.

Shaft is enjoyable when you are drunk!

Very predictable and very vulgar.

Instead let's jump into the action, the modern day has choreography and technology capable of making those epic shoot outs a little more exciting.

The plot is thin and predictable.

The whole plot is fairly predictable.

I'm just glad I enjoyed it as much as I wanted to.

Sometimes the film felt slow, bad direction, Samuel L.

Very Entertaining .

But the moment Sam jackson becomes fully immersed is when this film takes off.

Simply something dull and boring.

It's an exciting time-killer!

Entertaining .

Funny as hell and action packed.

Fast paced and fun, this is a great movie 4 fans of the franchise that should be seen on a big screen.

I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD.

Even the ending is predictable but still entertaining.

I thought it was very entertaining the way the drama was mixed with comedy.

This sequel packs a lot of laughs and is highly enjoyable.. 2/10 raters are haters because they prefer comedies by Hue Grant (no disrespect intended Grant).

I recommend checking it out if you're tired of the culture war and just want to watch something fun and enjoyable.

Plot was awesome and solid and the humour made it unbelievably enjoyable.

I say it's enjoyable family movie with Shaft's family and his grand Dad.

I enjoyed it.

The action comes and goes, but overall, this was an enjoyable film, seeing how I saw it with my dad (who grew up in the Roundtree era) over Father's Day weekend.
