RARA-AVIS: John Shaft

Saw the original back in the 70's when it first came out, and, if I haven't gone totally senile, it was a good mystery. Richard Roundtree did an excellent job of making Shaft a real person, unlike the horde of blacksploitation films that followed. Is the new version any good? I realize that it is not out in general release yet, but I was wondering if anyone in the group had seen it and could make a recommendation. Would like to have some detective work in it. A bit tired of heros who shoot their way to a solution.
