One Bad Mother F***er
Gordon Parks was the director of Shaft, making one of the greatest most well known blaxploitation films of all time. Of course the wonderful music provided by Isaac Hayes was the icing on the cake in this crime drama. John Shaft is a slick, smooth, and bad ass private investigator. He is the definition of a ladies man and he doesn’t take lip from nobody no matter the circumstance.
After Bumby a well known drug dealer and pimp in Harlem sends some men out for Shaft one of them ends up dead and the other in the hospital. After taking some heat from detective Lebowitz Shaft slides out of the hands of the detective. He knows his rights and makes sure that no one suckers him into giving them up.
He ends up meeting up with Bumby to find out what is really going on. Bumby explains that his daughter has been kidnapped and he wants Shaft to find her. He can’t involve the police or he could end up in jail. So Shaft takes the job and he ends up discovering that the Italian mob was behind the kidnapping because Bumby was taking too much of their business.
Without the help of the law Shaft ends up needing the help of an old friend from the streets. With his help and the help of his men he is able to devise a plan to get the girl out of the hands of the mobsters safely. No one can stop Shaft!
