Waist Deep is a 2006 action film directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall. Otis (Tyrese Gibson), nicknamed O2 due to his ability to disappear quickly after his crimes, is released from prison on parole after serving six years behind bars. When he returns home, he decides to forgo a life of crime in order to be a good father to his 9-year-old son, Junior (Henry Hunter Hall). He gets a job as a security guard, and he begins to raise his son as a single parent. While O2 is driving his son home from school one day, carjackers steal his car at gunpoint and drive away with Junior, who is sleeping in the back seat. He soon learns that crime lord Meat (Jayceon Terrell Taylor) has Junior, and he wants $10,000 by midnight if O2 ever wants to see his son alive again. Since he has no money to pay Meat, O2 must once again turn to criminal activities as he struggles to be reunited with his son.

    Los Angeles Times Gene Seymour
