Following the astonishing breakout and genre defining success of 1971’s Shaft, star Richard Roundtree, director Gordon Parks and screenwriter Ernest Tidyman reunited for this follow up that plunges Shaft into the middle of a gang war. John Shaft (Roundtree) gets a pre-dawn phone call from a panicked friend, Cal Asby, but he arrives at Asby’s funeral home just before the building blows up. Searching for Asby’s killer, Shaft discovers that Asby ran a gambling racket, doing business with Harlem gang lord Bumpy Jonas (Moses Gunn). Now the racket’s cash is missing; rival gangs are battling for Asby’s turf – and it’s up to John Shaft to find the killer and the missing stash of cash in time to prevent a war on the streets. Upping the action in every way, Gordon Park’s astonishing extended climactic chase (car/boat/foot/helicopter/high caliber) roars off the screen thanks to this like new 1080p HD presentation.
