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.

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.

The latest in a long line of mediocre August releases, this would-be thriller boasts several well acted, interesting characters stuck in a story that is unevenly paced and overly familiar.

The worst offence committed is a waste of talents in casting powerhouse players Tucci and Grier in stereotype 'other cop' roles.

In the end, In Too Deep becomes just another bad movie about bad people doing bad things. With none of the glorious fun we used to have watching Pam Grier strut her stuff.

It doesn't match up to the same level as Donnie Brasco, but In Too Deep is still a decent update of the gangster genre.

Too Shallow!

It's the kind of summer movie you see only if a power failure has knocked out your air conditioning.
January 1, 2000
Comes off as a simplistic morality tale rife with moments requiring forehead-slapping suspension of disbelief and precious little in the way of overt tension.

In Too Deep isn't special, but it's well done and coherent.
