Blaxploitation hero John Shaft makes a soulful, hard-hitting return to the big screen with Shaft’s Big Score! (1972), the rare action sequel that actually delivers on the promise of its original. Gordon Parks helms the sexy, violent thriller, which finds the charismatic police detective (Richard Roundtree) back on the streets in search of the goon (Wally Taylor) who offed his partner. Complicating matters is the fact that a pair of ruthless mobsters (Moses Gunn and Joseph Mascolo) is likewise hunting the at-large assassin. Of course one of the secrets of Shaft’s appeal is his way with women. Watch the way he effortlessly woos Marilyn Hamlin, Kathy Imrie, and Rosalind Miles out of their lingerie and prepare to go green with envy.
