Waist Deep


Time Out says

This Bonnie and Clyde remix satisfyingly integrates gangsta politics with drama, but sappy moments make some would-be bold scenes downright laughable. After his son is kidnapped during a violent carjacking, O2 (Gibson) summons beautiful stranger Coco (Good) to use her street connections to help rescue the boy. Through robberies and car chases all over the fabulous and forgotten neighborhoods of Los Angeles, the dangerous duo outmaneuvers notorious figures ranging from the LAPD to Big Meat, a heartless drug lord masterfully played by real-life ex-gangbanger the Game. A brief love scene between the lammers adds some steaminess, but O2’s paternal devotion is most affecting, even if it slips into the silly. (Now playing; click here for venues.) — Cherie Dennis
