Waist Deep

Critics Consensus

A well-meaning B-movie that suffers from a cliche-ridden script and poorly drawn characters that fail to inspire much sympathy.

Movie Info

To save his son from ruthless gangsters, a streetwise ex-con finds himself coerced into performing a series of crimes in this gritty thriller. Waist Deep features Tyrese Gibson as O2, a young father and recent parolee whose life on the outside is upended when his young son Junior is taken hostage after an auto-theft gone wrong. After learning that his boy is in the hands of a mob boss named Meat (The Game), O2 is forced to break the law once again to satisfy his demands, and teams up with Coco (Meagan Good), a hooker with ties to Meat, to get into the gangster's inner sanctum and save his son.

His son. His life. His freedom. He's taking them all back. Very good movie. I enjoyed it alot, It had a good conflict from beginning to end which kept you intrigued the whole time. Great ending they way it should be. I gotta say Meagan Good to me is the hottest most sexiest black woman alive, her lips are perfect meant to be kissed, what a body, smoking HOT! In South Los Angeles, while bringing his beloved son Junior back home from school, the paroled ex-convicted O2 promises his son that he would always come back to him and never leave him alone. However, his car is hijacked and Junior is kidnapped. Without any lead, O2 forces the street vendor Coco to help him to find where his car might have been sent for disassembling. Meanwhile, O2's addicted brother Lucky discovers that the cruel leader of the Outlaw Syndicate, the drug lord Meat, is keeping the boy arrested in a room and asking a ransom of US$ 100,000.00 that he believes O2 have from an old heist. O2 and Coco plot a scheme to put the pimp P-Money and Meat against each other and steal their money.

Awful movie. The only bright spot was Meagan Good.

God, I can't believe I paid to see this confused mess of a ghetto action movie. It's predictable, cloying, embarrassingly targeted at a certain audience, and perhaps worst of all - full of product placement. Yes, EVERY prostitute in Los Angeles has a Razr cell phone. Clearly.
