Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie has incessant use of the word "f--k" and graphic violence, including self-inflicted ice-pick wounds and lots of punching and shooting. A character is blatantly racist and another is a drug dealer. Especially troubling is a conclusion that is surprisingly supportive of vigilante-style solutions, despite indications that even Shaft believes that this time the system will result in justice.

Sexual Content

Some non-graphic scenes and references.

Violence

Lots of peril, lots of shooting and fighting, some deaths.

Language

Many, many uses of "f--k."

Social Behavior

Consumerism
