Wayans the screenwriter is largely to blame for the film's shortcomings, but Wayans the director does a solid job.

In terms of action, Wayans the director relies too much on slow-motion in shooting action scenes -- a tiresome habit that undercuts the potential excitement of some sequences.

So far, so hackneyed.

The comedy is hit-or-miss, while Wayans proves to be a huge fan of Hong Kong action flicks, ripping off a number of action sequences from them.

Mr. Wayans is an agreeable screen presence, but he makes a surprisingly bland action hero.

Question of the day: why is there such an appeal to brainlessness?

Unfortunately, however, where I'm Gonna Git You Sucka was completely off the wall, A Low Down Dirty Shame is just off.

I'm not sure what type of movie this is supposed to be or who its audience is, but it's a low down dirty shame that Wayans' talent is wasted on this film.

Wayans isn't sure whether to send up Shaft and company or simply to remake the action thriller. The result is an embarrassing compromise.

Here is a movie about guns. Take away the guns, and the movie would be about nothing much.

It's easy -- far too easy -- to use the title of Keenen Ivory Wayans' latest movie as a description. Unfortunately, it's also accurate.
