Factual error: In the scene where Shaft has chased the guy running from the drug bust and caught him in the hall with an empty gun you can plainly see the slide is locked back on the bad guy's pistol (indicating an empty magazine). When Shaft steps out to arrest him (before the bad guy jumps out of the window into the other building) you can clearly hear the 2 clicks of a firearm hammer falling on an empty chamber. With the slide locked back, the hammer is locked back also...it would never make any clicks.

Visible crew/equipment: While People's brother is waiting in the car he gets shot in the head. If you slow the scene you can see an empty blood sack near the back of the window.

John Shaft: Do you think that makes me less dangerous, or more dangerous?
Trivia: Richard Roundtree, who portrays Shaft's uncle in this movie, is the original Shaft from the 1971 film of the same name.
