      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

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

      Matthew Leyland BBC.com The worst is saved for last: just when you think the movie has shown the courage of its 'gritty' convictions, it hits you with schmaltz that would shame a Hallmark card. Rated: 2/5 Nov 11, 2006 Full Review David Jenkins Time Out From its non-committal title downwards -- we're a bit worse than ankle deep, but not quite neck deep -- the film includes a final shot that is almost surreal in its implausibility. Waist Deep? More like Deep Waste. Nov 2, 2006 Full Review Steve Davis Austin Chronicle The efforts of Waist Deep to make some meaningful social commentary about street gangs and the vicious circle in which African-American men often find themselves seem like an afterthought, rather than anything remotely sincere. Rated: 1.5/5 Jul 8, 2006 Full Review Jim Lane Sacramento News & Review Rated: 2/5 Aug 7, 2008 Full Review Andrew Wright The Stranger (Seattle, WA) Would most likely have made for a decent late-night Cinemax staple, but its stabs at higher significance only bring on the giggles. Oct 21, 2007 Full Review Kam Williams Awareness Magazine A waste of time! Rated: 0/4 Apr 9, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      849D W Bonnie & Clyde 2006!!!!! More as it concerns self defense as oppose to Vanity Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/23 Full Review Jelisije J A movie that started off hot and left me with a predictable stereotypical ending that ruined the overall experience for me. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review Tommy B I'm glad I only pay attention to Audience scores on "Rotten Tomatoes" before watching this movie. "Waist Deep" easily leans more toward a mid-70s score than a 28% average given by the critics. I guarantee you that if the ending had been "the opposite" for the main characters, the critics would have given it 80%. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Muito bom, gostei enormemente, cheio de situações inverossímeis que beneficiam o ar heroico injustiçado ao protagonista, briga de gangues dos marginalizados que submetem os mais pobres a mesma miséria e subjugamentos que os brancos, protagonista dos crimes de colarinho branco e desvios de verbas publicas, um excelente filme, significativo, diverte e reafirma a importância da presença familiar e da honestidade, cheia de emoções, tiros, ações, apaixonante… Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Contrary to most of the "Reviews" ; I LOVED this movie . With most movies; IF I fall asleep .. it isn't that good of a movie ... I stayed fully awake all thru this movie , even in my recliner .... The action was awesome ... Loved it ! A little bit of "Romance" was OK ... The showing of true "Friendship" was fantastic ... and; I also enjoyed the ending .. Very well done ! I probably will watch this again ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I think this move needs to be changed into something kid-friendly like Space Jam.
