Decent film, but forgettable. Not as funny nor exciting as it could've been.

Exactly what a movie about a 12 foot killer shark in a grocery store should be like.

It's Jamie Fox so there's bound to be awsome humor, but this time there's some action too.

Horribly dead pace and flat performances all around seem to be mistaking tedium for tension. The trope filled plot is beyond insulting and fails to add the fun element that might have excused the plot devices we've seen a million times before.

Honestly it feels like it was written and filmed as a comic exploration of bad heist cliches but edited as a serious thriller. Bait is a suitable title as its intention is to lure you into paying for entertainment but switching at the last minute.

IMO, the movie Bait tells us Sept 11 was the work of Bronx Zoo, crazies from NYC.

Bait is a solid action movie despite a weird pace to the film. Foxx's wise-guy charm is played against Morse's uptight ferocity in a way that often panders to stereotypical views. Well paced, but weak on story, character, and variety, "Bait" is an underwhelming effort from director Anton Fuqua.

Jamie Foxx played his role well and the story, although a bit unrealistic, provided plenty of action.
