THURS­DAY SHAFT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, ELEVEN ★★★

A big, dumb, lov­able ox of a movie. Sa­muel L. Jack­son stars as a rogue cop pur­su­ing his own form of jumped-up, jive-talkin’ jus­tice in this mod­ern up­date of the cult clas­sic from the early ’70s. If a rip­ping per­for­mance by new­comer Jef­frey Wright (as the best screen drug lord since Pa­cino in Scar­face) doesn’t seal the deal, there’s al­ways that mag­nif­i­cent theme by Isaac Hayes to fall back on. Qual­ity junk.
