Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Numbingly incoherent.
Rotten: Watching [the events] unfold is like being at the mercy of a compulsive channel surfer who can't stop flipping between a bad UPN cop show and a stock WB sitcom.
Rotten: Bait makes a fatal mistake, one this kind of movie should never make unless it actually is The Matrix or Terminator 2: Judgment Day: It's long.
Rotten: Director Antoine Fuqua ... serves up every cliche in the book.
Better than it looks
From the outside it looks fairly pedestrian and formulaic, but this movie is actually pretty darn good. Well made and worth a look.
Jamie Foxx Funniest!!!
Wow, I cant believe critics slammed this movie. I think it's the kinda of movie that you're not supposed to take that serious. I think is by far Jamie Fox's funniest movie and probably one of the last before went serious on us with Ray. I always enjoys this movie and laugh like it's my first time seeing it. I hope they release it on Blu-Ray in the near future.
