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. Waist Deep marked the acting debut of rapper The Game. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

Shockingly stupid, WAIST DEEP is also full of every cliche in the book, with each one brought home to roost in the most obvious manner by film's end. Were it not for the performances of Tyrese Gibson and Meagan Good, the movie would be unwatchable; even with these two attractive, engaging actors on board, it still sucks. Director and co-writer (with Darin Scott) Vondie Curtis-Hall doesn't bother to make his action scenes remotely believable, plot logic is nowhere to be found, and just about anything the hero wants or needs gets done lickety-split. Other observations you might note as this disaster inches onwards: the musical score by the ubiquitous Terence Blanchard is not among his best, and cute little Larenz Tate has gained some weight.
