Vondie Curtis Hall's irrational and contradictory crime thriller stars Tyrese Gibson (2 Fast 2 Furious) as an indestructible ex-con who, with a sullen but sizzling L.A. streetwalker (Meagan Good), sets out to find his kidnapped son. They raise ransom money on a well-publicized 24-hour crime spree and put two rival street gangs to rout in the process. Rapper the Game plays a one-eyed gang kingpin called Big Meat, whose specialty is chopping arms off disloyal underlings. Supposedly a contemporary Bonnie and Clyde, this is really a tacit endorsement of greedy gangsta life vaguely disguised in a morality play: The Hummers and the heavy artillery of the hip-hopping bad guys look like glossy magazine ads. For its ever-shifting attitudes toward men, women, and murder, Waist Deep is one of the sloppiest movies ever to reach the screen. — Bill Gallo
