In South Los Angeles, while bringing his beloved son Junior back home from school, the paroled ex-convicted O2 promises his son that he would always come back to him and never leave him alone. However, his car is hijacked and Junior is kidnapped. Without any lead, O2 forces the street vendor Coco to help him to find where his car might have been sent for disassembling. Meanwhile, O2's addicted brother Lucky discovers that the cruel leader of the Outlaw Syndicate, the drug lord Meat, is keeping the boy arrested in a room and asking a ransom of US$ 100,000.00 that he believes O2 have from an old heist. O2 and Coco plot a scheme to put the pimp P-Money and Meat against each other and steal their money.Written by

Actor Arnold Vosloo, of THE MUMMY fame, filmed many scenes as one of the detectives after Gibson and all his scenes and his story-line were deleted. The deleted scenes can be seen in it's entirety on the DVD deleted scenes menu. See more »
When Meat pulls the trigger and attempt so shoot 02, his gun clicks, it was empty. O2 says "seven shots". The problem is when you discharge a semi-auto on the last round, it does not re-cock, but remains "open", it would be obvious to even those who know nothing about guns that it was out of rounds.

Better than Get Rich or Die Trying, but not by Much.
This movie is like a mixture of menace II Society, Bonnie & Clyde, Man on Fire and others, although it does have some certain flaws, but the rest of decent, with tyrese & meagan good deliver nice performances and the game making the best urban movie villain since The Man from Boyz n The Hood, the production's decent, the camera-work is nicer than expected
The Movie is about a man who's released from prison and gets reunited with his son, then his son gets kidnapped and the only way to save him is rob banks and kill the man (The Game), when we reviewed last year of the dreadful get rich or die trying, it's hard to make a good urban gangsta movie, because gangsta movies aren't interesting movies, there's a flawed plot and few clichés Director Vondie Curtis Hall who recently recovered from that disastrous glitter, explains more differently in this one Waist deep is much more entertaining than Get Rich or Die Trying, but I'm not gonna quite recommended, so thumbs down for me.
