So uneven it's downright schizophrenic.

In its exploration of the moral dilemma of the undercover life, In Too Deep breaks no ground. But Epps is a leading man on the rise, and Cool J is something to see.

Boxoffice Magazine
June 5, 2002
Although it is based on a true story, the subject matter has been covered too many times to care, and the by-the-book plot plods along to an anti-climatic finish.

In Too Deep tells a conventional and predictable undercover story that requires frequent suspension of disbelief.

Deep was scripted from true police accounts, but it consistently fails to evoke any real sense of danger.

A cut above the average made-for-TV movie about this subject.

The only thing 'too deep' about this movie is the apparent lack of respect its creators must have for audiences -- it is literally an insult that such an abysmal failure has made it to market.

Epps takes a slug at this brick wall of cliches, and he hits hard enough to make an impression, but there's just no breaking through a rehashed plot.
Philip Booth

Monotonous and less compelling.
