  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Driving through the streets of L.A. can be a rough and dangerous ride. When single father and ex-con O2 (Gibson) gets his car jacked with his young son (Hall) in the back seat, he does what must be done to get Junior back from the gangsters who took him...even though it puts him Waist Deep in trouble with the law. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
With its drab color scheme, the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture matches the story nicely, helping deliver its dark moods. And, while blacks can be deep, shadow delineation is not completely up to par, with details in the shadows looking almost completely flat. (Danny Richelieu)
