In John Singleton's update of the '70s classic, cool-as-ice New York police detective John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) arrests Walter Wade Jr. (Christian Bale) for a racially motivated slaying. But the only eyewitness disappears, and Wade jumps bail for Switzerland. Two years later Wade returns to face trial, confident his money and influence will get him acquitted -- especially since he's paid a drug kingpin (Jeffrey Wright) to kill the witness.

Action, Adventure
Samuel L. Jackson and Christian Bale were great, but the pace of this movie really dragged. The plot was fairly standard, so good acting was really the saving grace.
