Shaft

3

The film: Nephew to Richard Roundtree's self-proclaimed sex symbol John Shaft, Sam Jackson's disillusioned cop-turned-PI expends a lot less effort pleasing the ladies. Instead, he prefers to spend his time dishing out sadistic beatings as he goes after Christian Bale's racist rich boy, a Patrick Bateman-lite who's bought his way out of a murder rap. Slick, but lacking the original's wallop.
