I think that sometimes people tend to over analyze movies, like some of the reviewers of this film. I LOVED this movie!!! It was funny and the action scenes are fantastic. The scenes with Jamie and Mike Epps are so funny and silly you have to like this movie. It was a very interesting movie with a not too hard to follow storyline. What more do you want for 8 dollars?
This is not a phd dissertation!!! Get this movie. If like Jamie Foxx you won't be disappointed.

Personally, I thought this movie was very cool and very funny. Jamie Foxx is a talented comedian and Antoine Fuqua is a director with a unique vision. The music video style added to the dark layers of the film. Doug Hutchison was brilliant in his role as Bristol. I cringe everytime he is compared to John Malkovich. Doug has an incredible versatility (most people do not recognize him at all from "The Green Mile") and this character is one of many he can do. I saw this movie three times in the theater and each time I noticed something new that explained a "plot hole" if you paid attention close enough. The movie is fast-paced and fun and the actors bring a great intensity to their role (witness the scene between Alvin and Bristol in the bathroom) and I'd furthermore like to add kudos to David Morse in his role and Mark Mancina for the music score, which was not released on CD for some reason.

This movie bombed at the box office, probably because everyone saw "starring Jamie Foxx" and figured it would be all unfunny schtick and no plot (Martin Lawrence, anyone?). But I went to see it, and loved it. Yes, there are some witty one-liners in this movie, but Foxx manages to create a surprisingly sympathetic character. Just listen to the scene when he tells his girlfriend a sad story about his childhood, and you'll realize how much acting range this guy really has. In addition, the movie manages to have some exhilarating action scenes and keep the tension level high throughout. David Morse and Doug Hutchinson both give terrific supporting performances.
The picture and sound on the DVD are excellent, but unfortunately there aren't many extras. Some interesting filmmaker/cast profiles and some funny commentary by Jamie Foxx, and that's about it. Maybe if the movie had done better at the box office, the filmmakers would have thought it worth it to put more stuff on the DVD. Regardless, it's a really good movie, and well worth picking up.

In New York, Alvin Sanders is a small-time thief who's just been hauled in for stealing a bunch of prawns (shrimp) from a local restaurant. He ends up in a cell with John Jaster, one half of a high-tech criminal team that's just stolen $42,000,000 worth of gold from the Federal Reserve. Realizing that he could die at any moment from his worsening heart condition, Jaster tells Alvin to relay a cryptic message to his wife about the whereabouts of the hidden gold. Alvin doesn't know exactly what the message means, and Edgar Clenteen, the U.S. Treasury investigator working the case, hopes it will lead to the gold or Jaster's partner Bristol, but it does neither. Eighteen months later, Jaster is dead, and both Clenteen and Bristol are still looking for that gold. I liked the movie. Some of the action scenes were very interesting, tense and well done. This movie has several parts that are funny.

When this movie began, I could not imagine where it was going. There seemed to be two movies in one. There was the movie with Jamie Foxx with his usual clownish antics; and there was a movie with a very serious deadly villain. The sharp contrast was enough to keep me watching. Amazingly, the two storylines blend well. The movie was funny and full of action. The plot was not overdone or predictable like so many movies these days. Jamie's character is lovable and intelligent. The actor who portrayed the villain in this film was brilliant and believable. I hope to see more of him in future. I would also like to see Jamie Foxx in more action flicks.

My first introduction to Bait (2000) was on cable while visiting my parents. The movie had already begun. I came in on David Morse's character (Edgar Clenteen) violently grilling Robert Pastorelli. What follows is a Jamie Foxx solo comedy routine that kept me invested in the rest of the film until its resolution. Alvin, Jamie Foxx character shows a little compassion toward Robert Pastorelli while Edgar Clenteen (Morse) tunes him up for the upcoming interrogation. The bravado, however misguided on Alvin's part, directed toward Clenteen in support of Pastorelli and the ensuing jostling between Clenteen and Alvin had me in hysterics. Add to this Mike Epps role as Alvin's "something like a pimp" brother and this becomes an enjoyable roller coaster ride.

When I finally read up and watched the whole movie I wanted a copy for myself. I could not find it in the neighborhood. An outstanding cast, great direction and a story that works on many levels for me becomes a welcome addition to a modest collection where I have titles that I view repeatedly.

Bait is a movie that I enjoy every time I watch it and I watch it often.

Enjoy.
