Shaft's Big Score
When Shaft finds out that a dead friend ran a numbers racket out of his legitimate business and left $200,000 unaccounted for, he knows why he has suddenly found himself in the middle of a war between rival thugs. These goons are all trying to take over the territory of the dead man as well as get their hands on the missing 200 grand.
Shaft has all he can handle trying to track down the money, and at the same time, keep his friend's widow from the clutches of the hoods.
- " The movie is intended as mass-audience escapist entertainment, and works on that level better than Shaft did. " – Roger Ebert
