Shaft (2019)

 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Shaft is the sequel to Shaft (2000) and the fifth movie in a series that began with Shaft (1971). This installment resorts to dumb comedy and has lots of sloppy, glamorized violence with no consequences. Plus, its message is all about defining "being a man" as acting tough and objectifying women. Gender-fluid men and any man who's not a fully red-blooded heterosexual are ridiculed. Expect to see tons of guns and shooting, blood spurts, fighting, and more. There's also frequent, graphic sexual innuendo, sex talk, and other adult material. One woman is shown partially topless, and others are viewed as sex objects. Language is constant, with countless uses of "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," the "N" word, "t-ts," and more. The villains are drug dealers, and drugs are part of the plot; drug use and paraphernalia are shown. A main character gets drunk, throws up, and passes out; other drinking is shown. Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Roundtree, and Jessie T. Usher co-star.
