* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Vincent Amafi]] from ''Shaft in Africa'' [[EstablishingCharacterMoment opens the film]] executing a diplomat's son who got too close to the truth that Amafi is running a modern day slave trade. Amafi offers young men from Africa new lives, only to sell them into labor-intensive jobs for literal pennies where they work 7 days a week for 16 hours per day with no way to speak up lest they face deportation or murder. Using slave labor on his own estates, Amafi has an apartment full of enslaved workers burned down and the workers killed in an attempt to murder the hero John Shaft. It is revealed he is keeping a group of prisoners in his own estate's dungeons, even rigging the cells with explosives to kill them all should Shaft not surrender.
