A fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat, Saturday night kind of film -- one that's even, at times ... impressive.
January 1, 2000
If nothing else, Bait reasserts Foxx's possibilities as an actor who can carry a movie on his own.
January 1, 2000
Stands out for refusing to settle for the narcissism of Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence movies, instead addressing human vulnerabilities.
January 1, 2000
It's a genial and watchable film, enlivened by restless direction and a script that pokes around into some surprisingly sober themes.

Bait is a relentless assault on the senses, heart-pounding and manifest.

Overall, this fun, aptly directly film would play great on TV, but on the big screen ... it's just a notch above average.

Represents the showcase that Foxx needed for his many skills.
January 1, 2000
It's funny and clever, and it grows on you.
January 1, 2000
A solid action movie.
January 1, 2000
Two things pretty much save the movie. The last 40 minutes are well-plotted and paced. And Foxx is enormously likable.
January 1, 2000
The film capitalizes on Foxx's comedic strengths and is better off because of it.
