This movie proves that the "it can't be bad if _______is in it" idea is a lie.
Even the great Samuel L. Jackson can't carry this turd. He's perfect for the part, but the cheesy clichés and awful stereotyping is impossible to watch.
It's embarrassing that good actors (Vanessa Williams not included) lent their skills to such an awful picture.
Obvious and outward police racism that nobody could get away with (today, anyway) is commonplace, but ignored by everyone BUT Shaft. I know it's a sequel (of sorts) to the original, but even Jackson and a talented cast can't pull it off.
No spoilers... Just, don't watch. You'll never get this time back.
