WAIST DEEP follows a tried and true formula: Ex-con’s son is kidnapped by his ex-partner in crime, a ransom is demanded, the ex-con works diligently to put together the ransom while doing his best to undermine his old partner, and there’s a final showdown between them. The kid is cute, the ex-con is an impressive slab of beef, the former partner is suitably menacing and fugly beyond belief, and of course there’s a pretty female to help things along. The formula works most of the time, but the movie is so predictable that in the end I asked myself why I bothered to rent it. There is a heckuva car chase near the end that sort of makes up for a dull middle. The movie, which could have just as easily starred Bruce Willis or Mel Gibson in his prime, clearly was aimed at an urban audience even though it was heavily marketed as a mainstream flick. That’s why I rented it. It could have been a lot worse, I suppose.
a great action-adventure flick
I took this movie home the other day not really expecting to see much of a movie but I was like what the hell, I’ll give it a try and was pleased.
This movie didn’t have the most original plot. It was just a father trying to get his kidnapped son back. Tyrese Gibson played the father who would very much rather forget his past and jail time so he set a good example for his kid. I thought Gibson did a very good job as he teamed up with the very attractive actress Meagan Good. Also in the movie was Larenz Tate. Tate did not impress me. It seemed like he just re-enacted his role in Crash.
Your not going to see a masterpiece after watching this film. Your not going to get blown away by the acting even though it was above average. They’re some hard-nosed scenes such as when I guy gets his armed chopped off for not paying back the money. But the movie seemed to have heart and I believe it was directed very well. Such scene is when Gibson’s character is running than switches to first person as the director, Vondie Curtis-Hall, has the camera shaking constantly to give it a more dramatic feel.
The relationship between Good and Gibson’s character grew way to fast but still was par. There are some moments that are far fetched but the movie was still very entertaining and intense and I believe it gets a 7.5 rating (rounded to a 8).
Acting 7, editing 6, directing 8, plot 6.
