Product Overview

Action packed, cool and in your face. Enjoy the Samuel L. Jackson Ultimate Collection in this 3-pack, including SHAFT, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT and COACH CARTER.

SHAFT: Who delivers ten times out of ten? Samuel L. Jackson is Shaft, the man and the movie. John Singleton (Boyz 'N' The Hood) directs this gritty, action-packed thriller. With Uncle John Shaft (Richard Rountree reprising his original role) as mentor, it's no surprise that today's Shaft is the coolest dude around. To stop a racist killer (Christian Bale), Shaft's got to track down the only eyewitness that can put him behind bars (Toni Colette). As Shaft closes in, so does the danger. Armed with attitude and up against corrupt cops and venomous druglords, he's out to make crime pay up.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT: Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson deliver electrifying performances in this "tense, superbly-directed and top drawer drama" (Jeffrey Lyons, NBC-TV) about what happens when the rules that command a soldier become the rules that condemn him. Colonel Terry Childers (Jackson) is a patriot and war hero. But when a peacekeeping mission he leads in Yemen goes terribly wrong, he finds himself facing a court martial. Accused of breaking the rules of engagement by killing unarmed civilians, Childers' only hope of vindication rests with comrade-in-arms Hays Hodges (Tommy Lee Jones), a military lawyer of questionable abilities. Together, they face the battle of their lives. Directed by Oscar-winning director William Friedkin and co-starring Guy Pearce, Bruce Greenwood, Anne Archer and Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley, Rules of Engagement is "a magnificent movie you must see" (Larry King, USA Today).

COACH CARTER: Based on an incredible true story, Coach Carter is the inspirational account of controversial basketball coach Ken Carter (Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson), who received both high praise and staunch criticism when he made national news for a gymnasium "lockout" of his entire undefeated team for poor academic performance.

With the players, the parents, and the community rallying to get the team back on the court, Carter must overcome the obstacles of his environment and show the young men a future that stretches beyond gangs, drugs, prison and even basketball.

Reviews
ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review [Rules] Rules of Engagement suffers from a serious split personality disorder. On the one hand, it wants to explore the fascinating question of when killing people in combat turns into murder. On the other hand, the movie wants to present a straightforward courtroom thriller, with all of the usual trappings (an innocent man wrongly accused, a defense attorney striving for redemption, a belligerent prosecuting attorney, and a big speech at the end). Unfortunately, respected director William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) and screenwriter Stephen Gaghan are unable to effectively wed these two elements. The movie creates an over-the-top villain who renders the first approach moot, then shoots down the second one with a feeble ending.

Review [Shaft] ...[the movie] is more interesting than it might have been: not just a retread of the old movie, but Shaft is more complicated than before, and with well-observed supporting characters... Jackson has a way of bringing weight to his roles. He always looks like he means it...
